‘Ambanis’- the very surname holds insurmountable amount of weightage (an wealth!). Every activity, every wedding, every bash hosted by the richest family of India, holds a ‘larger than life’ picture. We mean, where else on earth have you seen floating sets being arranged for a puja and a pre-wedding bash hosted for almost half of the residents of Bollywood in Switzerland? Only the Ambanis can make the impossible happen and we got to see glimpses of the same in Ambani ke do out of teen chiraag, Isha Ambani Piramal and her twin brother, Akash Ambani’s wedding.

Speaking specifically about Akash Ambani in here, the handsome entrepreneur got married to his childhood sweetheart, Shloka Mehta on March 09, 2019, in a big fat Gujju wedding. The newbie Ambani bahu, Shloka Mehta had looked beyond gorgeous in a Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla ensemble. Shloka had maintained the stereotypical red and golden bridal colour in her lehenga and teamed up her wedding ensemble with a heavy kundan necklace, maatha patti, nath and traditional earrings. Take a look at Shloka’s pictures from her bridal photoshoot:
And now we came across a beautiful picture of Shloka Mehta, wherein she is seen acing the look of merging summer with traditional. Her frilled, beige-coloured lehenga had beautiful pink roses drawn all over it. Shloka, as always, decided to go with as minimal makeup as possible and teamed her lehenga with floral-shaped, diamond jewellery and let her hair loose and the Ambani bahu looked as fresh as a breeze! Here’s her picture:
Coming back to Shloka Mehta and Akash Ambani’s wedding, an official statement pertaining to the same could be read as “The Akash Ambani wedding started with Akash and his family paying their respects to his Dadaji and Nanaji. All the guests collected at the pre-wedding concourse for the Saafa tying ceremony even as Vishal and Shekhar engaged in some foot tapping singing to set the tempo. Seen mingling and enjoying tying the saafa, the festive Indian turban, were former British Premiere Tony Blair, former U N Secy general Ban Ki-Moon global CEOs, cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, other cricketers and Bollywood stars.”
The statement could be further read as, “The Baaraat left from the Concourse through the Driveway amidst boisterous dancing and Masti...putting everyone in great spirits. More corporate Honchos and Bollywood celebrities joined the family in the Baraat Masti including Google's CEO Sunder Pichai, global heads of Bank of America, and JP Morgan, stars Ranbir Kapoor, Shahrukh Khan, Amir Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Thalaiva Rajanikant, cricketers Yuvraj Singh, Hardik and Krunal Pandya and many more.” (Must Read: Priyanka Chopra Is All-Praises For Hubby Nick Jonas, Calls Him Old Soul And Says He Is Supportive)
It concluded with, “The Baraat will enter the wedding Hall within the Jio World Centre for the various ceremonies including Pokhwanu, Jaimala, Saptapadi, Kanyadaan etc. The guests will be treated to various delicacies from across the world as part of the wedding dinner. The wedding celebrations will continue on 10th and 11th March with lovely receptions and exquisite performances lined up. A key highlight of the receptions will be unheard of musical fountain cum dance show which integrates the mesmerising and colourful movements of the water fountain to a spectacular dance performance on stage and an aerial dance act right above the stage and the water fountain! In many ways, signifying the lyrical symmetry between water, earth and sky.”
At their engagement, the multi-talented Nita Ambani had turned poetess for her son and then soon-to-be daughter-in-law and had written a heartfelt poem in ode to the newly-engaged Ambani couple, Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta. The poem could be read as, “They went to Kindergarten to learn ABC, Not knowing — que sera sera — What their future would be…Gummy bears and jujubes, Sparkle pops and jelly beans… Sweetened their lives, From childhood through teens! Till glasses of milk made way for cups of tea… And the Sky fell in love with sweet Chants of glee! From ponytails and Barbies… From pranks and football… The years just blended… And, today they stand tall – With their eyes full of love With one single plea… Their hearts beat in rhythm Singing, “Will you marry me?” Today we bless them, and today we pray: All through their lives, on each golden day, May they always be there holding hands side by side May Gods shower their blessings on this groom and his bride!”
In an interview to an online portal, Shloka Mehta had spoken about keeping pace with her relationship with Akash Amabni, despite their hectic schedules. She was quoted as saying, “Despite years and busy schedules, we have always found ways to stay connected. Akash is incredibly grounded, and we share a bond based on meaning and memories. We don't just get along - we also support each other's hopes and aspirations and are determined to build a sense of purpose into our lives together. We are lucky to have a love that began with being best friends and luckier still to have such supportive families”.

While Akash Ambani had revealed, “I am truly happy that our friendship has blossomed into love and Shloka and I are getting married, she is a truly special and extremely kind-hearted person”. In another interview with a leading media portal, Nita Ambani, post-Akash and Shloka’s proposal had said, “I have known Shloka since she was four and we are all delighted to welcome her to our home and our hearts”. A source close to the family had also revealed, “Shloka is a very charming girl, extremely cultured and it’s difficult to say which of the two families is lucky with this upcoming marriage”.
