We grew up in a society that promoted 'fairness' advertisements over true beauty and how a 'fairy and lovely' princess deserves the 'prince charming'. But thanks to the millennial generation, these thoughts are bygones. Now, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and #NoFilters rules social media. And Anant Ambani's rumoured girlfriend, Radhika Merchant is a flag bearer of it. (Recommend Read: Sameera Reddy Says Motherhood Made Her Fearless, Recounting Her Adventurous Trip To Highest Peak)
Before we take you further into the story, let us take a look at Anant and Radhika's love story that made it to the headlines at Isha Ambani's wedding. Anant and Radhika are childhood friends as their families have been friends for decades now. Since the time Radhika was spotted at Ambani functions, paparazzi are crazily following Radhika to her every outing.
On October 3, 2019, Radhika stepped out in the city donning a 'no makeup' look, and oh boy, she radiated true beauty. In the picture that has been trending on social media, we can see her dressed in a mint blue kurta with a white dupatta. Take a look at it below:
Radhika is extremely close to the Ambanis, courtesy her relationship with Anant, but it is his sister, Isha Ambani that hold a much important place in her life. There are times we have seen the two share jewellery pieces like best of friends.
For those who don't know, Radhika is the daughter of Viren Merchant, the CEO and Vice Chairman of Encore Healthcare. She did her schooling from Mumbai’s Cathedral and John Connon School and École Mondiale World School before completing her IB Diploma from BD Somani International School. Radhika has her graduate degree from New York University in Politics and Economics. After coming back to India, she worked as a Sales Executive in 2017 at Isprava, a real estate firm that ‘creates dream holiday homes for those with the finest tastes’.
In an interview, she had talked about her love for the sport and had shared, "To go trekking or just relaxing in the calm and secluded areas of any place". She had also shared the reason of returning to India and had stated, “To find a place where my work would matter, and I could make a real contribution to the organization I would join."

Talking about her career, Radhika had once said, "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." (Don't Miss: Were Arti Singh And Sidharth Shukla All Set To Get Married But It Later Got Cancelled?
