The year 2018 and 2019 had one of the largest weddings of the season. The dreamy wedding of Isha Ambani-Anand Piramal and Akash Ambani-Shloka Ambani was nothing less than a fairytale. But before Shloka got hitched to Akash, her elder sister, Diya Mehta had tied the knot with Ayush Jatia, son of Amit Jatia, who is the MD of Hardcastle Restaurants (McDonald's' Indian franchise).
Diya and Ayush had tied the knot in April 2017 in Manama, Bahrain. Their wedding was a three-day affair from April 26-28, 2017 and had more than 750 guests. Diya and Ayush are proud parents to a baby girl, whereas, Akash and Shloka had embraced parenthood in 2020, with the arrival of their son, Prithvi Ambani.
On Friendship's Day, i.e., August 1, 2021, Diya Mehta Jatia took to her IG stories and shared an adorable picture of her daughter and Shloka's son. In the picture, the babies had their backs to the camera and were seen enjoying each other's company. Revealing how the two are already besties, Diya wrote, "Baby P and baby M besties already" atop the picture.
Diya's wedding ceremonies with Ayush were nothing less than a festival. For her sangeet ceremony, which was held at Ritz-Carlton, Diya had opted for a dreamy chikankari lehenga with universal gold accents. Diya had twinned with her sister, Shloka Mehta and her best friend-cum-sister, Isha Ambani in chikankari lehenga. Designer, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla had designed the outfits of the ladies and had posted a lovely picture of Diya, Shloka and Isha, looking stunning in white designer lehengas.
For the unversed, Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta had studied at Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai and his twin sister, Isha Ambani was her classmate and a very close friend of Shloka's sister, Diya Mehta. In Isha's words, she is like a third sister to Shloka and Diya. In an interaction with the Vogue, Isha Ambani Piramal had spoken about her twin brother, Akash Ambani and her friend-turned-sister-in-law, Shloka Mehta.
Talking about their bond, Isha had said, "Akash has the largest heart ever. He's like one of the most—I don't think there's a word for it in English—"dayalu" humans in this world. He's empathetic, gracious and gentle, just like Shloka."
To announce the arrival of Akash and Shloka's newborn, an official statement from the spokesperson of the Ambani family could be read as “With the grace and blessings of Lord Krishna, Shloka and Akash Ambani became proud parents of a baby boy today in Mumbai. Nita and Mukesh Ambani are delighted to become grandparents for the first time, as they welcomed the great grandson of Dhirubhai and Kokilaben Ambani. Both mother and son are doing well. The new arrival has brought immense joy to the entire Mehta and Ambani families.” A picture of junior Ambani and his proud grandfather, Mukesh Ambani had gone viral back then.
