Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta's engagement saw an emotional moment when Akash’s mother, Nita Ambani couldn’t control her happy tears. Nita ji had bestowed a lovely gift to the newly-engaged in the form of a poem that 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 2018, Nita Ambani was all-praises about her then soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Shloka Mehta and had stated, “I have known Shloka since she was four and we are all delighted to welcome her to our home and our hearts.” Shloka had also spoken about her then hubby-to-be Akash Ambani and 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.” (Must Read: Inside Pictures Of Mona Singh's Bachelorette Trip To Goa With Her Closest Friends)
