‘Big fat Indian wedding’ - all of us might have heard this phrase and we got to experience this recently in early March when India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani’s son, Akash Ambani took the wedding vows with his childhood love, Shloka Mehta. It was on March 9, 2019, when Akash and Shloka exchanged the garlands in the presence of their families and friends. Their ceremony was followed by post-wedding celebrations on March 10 and 11 with two grand wedding receptions.
For the ones who don’t know, Shloka Mehta is the daughter of Russell Mehta and Mona Mehta, who happen to be the owner of the diamond trading company, Rosy Blue, as well as the retail jewellery brand Orra. Shloka, on the other hand, opted out of the diamond business and rather joined, Rosy Blue Foundation, the company’s philanthropic arm.

Now, Pinky Reddy, the president of FICCI, has taken to her official Instagram handle and shared a lovely unseen picture from the happening wedding. Sharing a lovely picture with the lady of the hour, Shloka Mehta, Pinky wrote, “MEMORIES” atop of it.
In the picture, the Ambani bahu can be seen posing with her mother, Mona Mehta, Mukesh Ambani's sister, Nina Kothari and Pinky Reddy. The Ambani bahu can be seen donning a beige embroidered lehenga, with gold and green embellishments and floral motifs all over. To accentuate her look, Shloka chose to team it up with a heavily embroidered blouse and an elegantly draped dupatta. And how can we not acknowledge the gorgeous matha teeka, floral drop earrings, bangles and a stunning diamond necklace. Here is the picture:
Shloka and Akash got engaged in June last year. And since then, their pictures have been breaking the internet. The galore saw who’s who of the industry making it to the celebrations. However, the highlight of the grand bash was when Shloka’s sister-in-law, Isha, who welcomed her in the family with a beautiful speech. Isha had said, “Today is all about ‘hearts’. The theme is ‘hearts’, Shloka is ‘heart’, Akash is a ‘heart’; it’s about the greeting of hearts, meeting of hearts, and the celebration of hearts. And Anand and I are all hearts for Shloka and Akash. I don’t think our hearts could burst anymore with love and affection than it is today. And, we are just so happy to call Akash our bhai and Shloka our Bhabhi.” (Also Read: Kiara Advani Opens Up About Dating Rumours With Sidharth Malhotra, Details Inside)
Isha had further added, “Welcome to the family. But the truth is that Shloka has been a part of our family since as far as I can remember. Diya (Shloka's sister) and I were in school together, and Diya is the first best friend I ever had. And, by relation, Shloka has also been my best friend since...I don't know, I can't even remember a time in my life when I didn't know Shloka. So in many ways, this is the officialising the fact that we were sisters; born to different mothers. And I am just so happy that I finally get to call her my real sister. And, our family feels complete in a way that it never did before. So, welcome to the family.”
Shloka, in an interview, had talked about her love, and had remarked, “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 in our lives together. We are lucky to have a love that began with being best friends and luckier still to have such supportive families.” (Also Check: Misha Kapoor Is The New 'Rockstar' Of Tinsel Town, Mommy Mira Shares A Picture Of Her Playing Drums)
