Much has been said and written about the Ambani weddings, and any adjective to describe them would indeed be an understatement. Unless you would have been living under the rocks, you’d be aware of the weddings of Nita Ambani and Mukesh Ambani’s twins, Isha Ambani and Akash Ambani, which was all over the internet for the past few months. Post Isha and Akash, the nation is eagerly waiting for an official announcement about the youngest Ambani, Anant Ambani’s wedding with his not-so-rumoured-anymore ladylove, Radhika Merchant.

It was in May 2018 when Isha Ambani got engaged to the love of her life, Anand Piramal, and the nation got introduced to the probable soon-to-be choti bahu of the Ambani clan and Anant Ambani’s girlfriend, Radhika Merchant. In a video that went viral from Isha and Anand’s engagement bash, Radhika came into the limelight with her performance on Ghoomar with then brides-to-be, Isha and Shloka Mehta. Though there has not been any official confirmation on Radhika and Anant's relationship by the Ambanis, gestures and pictures do not lie!
Radhika Merchant has been a mystery and not much is known about her, but every picture or video of her that surfaces on the internet, makes it to the headlines. Before the name and fame, remains a childhood filled with innocence and wide-eyed awe! And it is always a treat to watch throwback childhood photographs of our favourite celebrities. We came across an unseen childhood picture of Radhika and we are amazed how innocently she is smiling at the camera while another little munchkin holds her tight.
To give you all a little information about Radhika Merchant, she is the daughter of Viren Merchant, the CEO and Vice Chairman of Encore Healthcare. Radhika 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 completed her graduation from the New York University, in Politics and Economics. Sometime back, a picture went viral from what looked like Radhika’s graduation ceremony. Dressed in a gorgeous white dress with a purple graduation robe, Radhika can be seen broken down into gigs of laughter.
After coming back to India post her graduation, Radhika Merchant had worked as Sales Executive in 2017 at Isprava, a real estate firm that ‘creates dream holiday homes for those with the finest tastes’. Quite ambitious by nature, Radhika had once shared her experience of working in the luxury space in an interview. She had shared, “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."

#IshaKiShaadi and #AkuStoleTheShlo had dominated our social media timelines for months and seems like people are still not over both the weddings as every time we open our Instagram, all we look for is an unseen glimpse from Isha Ambani-Anand Piramal or Akash Ambani-Shloka Mehta weddings. A while back, makeup artist and hair stylist, Loveleen Ramchandani had shared an unseen look of Radhika Merchant from the pre-wedding bash of Akash and Shloka from St. Moritz in Switzerland. The oh-so-stunner, Radhika flaunted a royal look in a grey-coloured vintage gown, and she kept her hair tied in a ponytail with minimal makeup and jewellery accentuating her look.
Let us give you a recap of one of the major highlights of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s wedding. Newly-weds, Shloka and Akash had their fair amount of fun with the youngster lot post their star-studded wedding reception on March 11, 2019. Later, a one-of-a-kind post-wedding bash video had emerged on the internet, wherein, Akash and Shloka had sealed their wedding with an ‘oh-so-romantic’ liplock as their friends cheered for them in the background. Post sharing their lovely moment, Akash and Shloka went on to cheer for chote bhai, Anant Ambani and his muse, Radhika Merchant to follow suit, which the latter had shyly refused.
