Whenever you cook your own share of khayali pulao of doing something, does your inner voice sometimes jerk you off and remind you this, “Oh hello! Are you an Ambani or what?” While we do hate our inner voice then but somewhere deep down we realise that it is telling us the truth. Otherwise, where else on earth have you seen a battalion of Bollywood stars performing at your pre-wedding and baraat? Trust me you, if we start citing all the examples of ‘if extravaganza and luxury had a face, it would look like the Ambanis', we would end up writing an entire thesis on it! Hence, let’s stick to an article and share with you an interesting update of the Ambanis, but this time with a twist!

There is only one ‘soon-to-be-Ambani’ left in the Ambani household. With Anand Piramal tying the knot with Isha Ambani Piramal on December 12, 2018, and Akash Ambani getting hitched to his childhood sweetheart, Shloka Mehta on March 09, 2019, all we wait for now is to see when will Anant Ambani tie the knot with not-so-rumoured-anymore sweetheart, Radhika Merchant. Although no official statement about Radhika dating Anant has come in from the Ambanis, pictures, actions and ‘family snaps’ don’t lie, right? Anant and Radhika, like any millennial couple, are often seeing going out on dates and this one’s about one of them.
If we ask most of the people that what would they do if they became the richest person in this country, most would say never repeat a dress! But like any ordinary girl, Radhika Merchant doesn’t shy away from the same and looks like she finds no offense to repeat one if need be! In August 2018, Radhika Merchant was spotted on a dinner date with Anant Ambani, wherein she was spotted wearing a stunning black-strappy white top. While we had aww-ed over the picture for quite sometime, we recently came across a throwback picture of Radhika from October 2017, wherein she was spotted sporting the similar top in a chill-session with friends! Take a look at the pictures below:

This is totally at par as Nita Ambani herself had spoken about and the freedom given to their children to choose their life partners in an interview. This is what she had shared, “Mukesh and I as parents have given our children the freedom to choose their life partners. When my son decides to get married, to whoever it is, we are going to welcome him and wish him all the happiness in the world.”
To give you all a little information about Radhika Merchant, the gorgeousness is the daughter of Viren Merchant, the CEO and Vice Chairman of Encore Healthcare. Post completing her graduation degree from the New York University, in Politics and Economics, Radhika had worked as a sales executive in 2017 at Isprava, a real estate firm that ‘creates dream holiday homes for those with the finest tastes’. Quite ambitious by nature, Radhika Merchant shared her experience about working in the luxury space at an interview, “I had never given much thought to the concept of luxury while growing up. However, after joining Isprava, my idea of luxury has evolved. Earlier I was put off by the mentality behind luxury because I equated it with a large logo on a handbag or a specific pattern on a piece of fabric but after joining Isprava and understanding the brand's idea of luxury I have learnt to appreciate it. To us, luxury is the seamless process of buying a home and a hassle-free holiday experience."
