IS Mukesh Ambani’s Son Akash ambani To Marry Shloka Mehta this year?
Is Shloka Mehta, the youngest daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta, the girl slated to marry Akash Ambani, the scion of India’s richest family, later this year? The answer is yes, if sources are to be believed.
While the two families have refused to comment on the news, sources say the engagement can be announced within the next few weeks. The wedding is expected to be held in early December, revealed sources.
Akash is the eldest son of India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, and Shloka is the daughter of Russell Mehta, who heads Rosy Blue Diamonds.
The Ambanis and Mehtas know each other well and even Akash and Shloka studied together at Dhirubhai Ambani International School.While emails and reminders sent by PTI to a spokesperson of Ambani family and his company Reliance Industries remained unanswered, a source close to the family said, “No dates of either the wedding or engagement of Akash Ambani have been finalized”.
“As and when any good news is to be shared, the family will be delighted to share with everyone,” the source said.
The source discounted the talks of March 24 as engagement date. “Importantly and to reaffirm that as and when any wedding is finalized, it will only be in India”.
Emails sent to Rosy Blue spokesperson too remain unanswered.
Akash and twin sister Isha are eldest of the three children of Mukesh and Nita Ambani. He is on the board of Reliance Jio, the group’s fast-growing telecom venture.
Shloka, who after finishing schooling at Dhirubhai Ambani International School in 2009 went on to study Anthropology at Princeton University and masters in Law at The London School of Economics and Political Science, is a director on Rosy Blue Foundation since July 2014. She is also a co-founder of ConnectFor, which matches volunteers with NGOs that need them.Shloka is the youngest of three children of Russell Mehta and Mona, who is a close relative of the controversial diamantaire Nirav Modi.Russel is the son of Arunkumar Ramniklal M., one of the co-founders of B.
