The Party Of The Year

30 Jun, 2018
RIL Chairman Mukesh and wife Nita Ambani hosted a dazzling engagement party for son Akash and Shloka at their residence, Antilia. Nita, Isha and Shloka all opted for Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla ensembles for the function. The star-studded guest list included master blaster Sachin Tendulkar who came with wife Anjali, bollywood stars, and political honchos. The family had earlier hosted a mehendi function on Wednesday, followed by a pre-engagement bash on Thursday for the couple.

Shloka, the middle child of Russell and Mona Mehta studied at Dhirubhai Ambani School before leaving the Maximum City for the USA. The young heiress completed her undergraduate studies at Princeton University, and went on to do her masters at the London School of Economics, before returning to India in 2014.

Russell Mehta runs the diamond trading company Rosy Blue, as well as the retail jewellery brand Orra - but after her return, Shloka opted out of the diamond business and rather chose to join the company’s philanthropic arm, Rosy Blue Foundation. Mehta's elder brother, Viraj is married to Nisha Sheth who comes from the Great Eastern Shipping family. Her sister Diya, too, tied the knot with Ayush Jatia, son of Amit Jatia of Hardcastle Restaurants, in 2017.

The Ambanis ended 2018 with Akash's twin sister Isha tying the knot to Piramal scion, Anand, in what was the biggest wedding of the year. The lavish, star-studded Mumbai wedding and receptions were preceded by a weekend of pre-wedding celebrations in Udaipur that saw the who's who of the world reach the City of Lakes. From Hillary Clinton to India Inc, a concert by Beyonce to B-town shaking a leg - it was quite the bash in Udaipur.
