Love. When it blossoms, it brings the most amazing and beautiful experience in one’s life, which is cherished forever! There’s a world full of romance out there and since forever, we are eager to explore it. Finding someone special in childhood or during school days makes the experience even more charming as you grow together and have explored adulthood holding each other’s hands. There’s a reason why old school romance is termed priceless! Such is the priceless relationship of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta. A journey that began with a high-school proposal transformed into a beautiful relationship of boyfriend-girlfriend, followed by husband-wife and finally, parents.
Son of Nita Ambani and Mukesh Ambani, Akash Ambani, scion of Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries Limited, is a graduate from Brown University, Ivy League research university. Daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta and Mona Mehta, Shloka Mehta is the director of the Rosy Blue Foundation and co-founder of ConnectFor, which matches volunteers with NGOs that need them. Akash and Shloka had studied in Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai and he had proposed to her on the last day of school. Akash’s ‘crush’, Shloka said ‘yes’ to the proposal but were advised to keep their relationship a secret to avoid unwanted media attention. Finally, in March 2019, Akash and Shloka became one and were pronounced husband and wife. The couple had embraced parenthood in the year 2020.
March 9, 2021, marks the second wedding anniversary of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta, and to make their day more special, his chachi, Tina Ambani posted a heartfelt wish for the lovebirds. Tina posted two pictures of the couple and celebrated their journey as adorable kids to radiant lovebirds to doting parents, in her caption. She wrote, “Celebrating your journey from adorable kids to radiant lovebirds and now doting parents to your own bundle of joy! May your circle of love grow stronger, the bonds of togetherness deepen and each day bring new joys and discoveries. Happy anniversary Akash and Shloka.”
Last year, on Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s first wedding anniversary, Tina Ambani had posted a lovely picture with the couple to wish them on their special day. Dressed in traditional, Tina, Akash and Shloka had flashed their brightest smiles for the camera. Tina had captioned the post as “To a beautiful couple who are always in sync, perfectly matched, and brimming with love. Happy anniversary Akash and Shloka stay blessed always” followed by a heart emoticon.
