If there is one family, who has been grabbing the headlines for quite a few months now, then it has to be the Ambanis, undeniably. With the grand wedding of Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani’s daughter, Isha Ambani with the love of her life, Anand Piramal, on December 12, 2018, the nation is eagerly waiting to witness the next wedding in Ambani household i.e. of the Reliance heir, Akash Ambani and his childhood love, Shloka Mehta.

When Ambanis-Mehtas announced the engagement of lovebirds, Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta in 2018, everyone was curious to know everything about the badi bahu of Ambani family. Amidst all the hullabaloo of the much-awaited wedding of 2019, let us throw some light on the personal life of the badi Ambani bahu. Shloka Mehta is the daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta and Mona Mehta. Youngest of the three sisters, Shloka was Akash’s classmate at the Dhirubhai Ambani School.
The newest member of the Ambani family, Shloka Mehta is the director of the Rosy Blue Foundation and co-founder of ConnectFor, which matches volunteers with NGOs that need them. Do you know that Akash Ambani had proposed his ‘crush’, Shloka Mehta on the last day of school? Obviously, Shloka had said ‘yes’ to his proposal and they even told their families about it. Akash and Shloka were advised to keep their relationship a secret to avoid unwanted media attention.
Since Ambanis and Mehtas have been family friends for long, even their children are close to each other. Sometime back, we shared an unseen teenage photo of Isha Ambani and Shloka Mehta. We can’t get over how cute and adorable Isha and Shloka are looking in their throwback picture. Let us take you on a trip down the memory lane and give you a glimpse of ‘then-and-now’ Isha and Shloka.
Amidst the #AkuStoleTheShlo wedding pictures and videos popping up on our social media timelines, we got a glimpse of the Mehta parivaar. In this unseen photo, we get a sneak peek into the close-knit one big happy family of Shloka Mehta. Here’s the picture of Shloka, with her parents, grandparents and family:
Sometime back, Shloka Mehta was spotted with her mother, Mona Mehta at the celebrity fashion designer, Monisha Jaising's store in Bandra. What we can’t help but notice is the uncanny resemblance between the mother and her daughter. In a picture shared by a make-up artist, Rakesh Thapa, of Shloka’s mother, Mona Mehta, we can see how the beauty has passed on from one generation to another. Here are the pictures of the mother-daughter duo:
With their wedding hashtag, #AkuStoleTheShloe trending like crazy on social media, we came across another unseen picture (and probably the best till date) of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta. Akash and Shloka look ethereal as they twinned in white. While Shloka can be seen sitting on a chair and the love of her life, Akash stood right behind her, having her back forever! This couple looked like a pair made in heaven! (Also Read: Nita Ambani Inaugrates Dhirubhai Square At Jio World Centre Ahead Of Akash-Shloka's Wedding)

Akash and Shloka's wedding ceremony will take place at 7.30pm.”
Earlier, in an interview, Shloka Mehta had talked about the bond that she shares with Akash Ambani and keeping pace with her relationship despite of their hectic schedules. Shloka 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.”
On the other hand, Akash Ambani gave an all-praises statement about his ladylove Shloka Mehta and was quoted as saying, “I am truly happy that our friendship has blossomed into love and Shloka and I are getting married, she is a truly special and extremely kind-hearted person.” In another interview with a leading media portal, Nita Ambani, post-Akash and Shloka’s proposal had said, “I have known Shloka since she was four and we are all delighted to welcome her to our home and our hearts.” A source close to the family had revealed, “Shloka is a very charming girl, extremely cultured and it’s difficult to say which of the two families is lucky with this upcoming marriage.” (Also Read: Ambani Family Celebrates Maha Shivratri With Grand Puja At Antilia Ahead Of Akash-Shloka's Wedding)
