RIL AGM: Shloka, Radhika Debut; Isha Twins With Granny Kokilaben In Florals
First Family Of Business
This year's meeting saw the addition of two new faces, with the Ambani daughter-in-law Shloka Mehta, and Anant's girlfriend Radhika Merchant also in attendance.
The oil, retail and data czar's speech, that lasted for nearly 90 minutes, included several announcements for the future of Reliance.

Not Without My Mother
Ambani also announced Reliance New Commerce, a venture that aims to connect the country's kirana stores with Reliance's high-speed digital platform, tapping into the millions of consumers who are likely to order supplies and provisions through the platform.

The Jio Chapter
Several exciting announcements were made in regard to the RIL stallion, Jio, that turns three on September 5. The network will launch fibre services on its birthday - with plans being priced between Rs 700 to Rs 10,000 per month. The company also plans to make voice calls free from homes to any network.
But that's not the last of the perks of being a Jio Fribre customer.
Come 2020, premium Jio Fibre users will also be able to watch movies at home on the first day of its release. Announcing the move, Mukesh Ambani said the 'Jio First Day First Show' service wil be launched by the middle of the financial year 2020.
Jio's Forever Plans, that promises subscribers an HD or 4K LED television for free, along with a 4K set-top box, was also announced.
While Nita Ambani opted for a pastel pink suit paired with strings of pearls and diamond earring, the Reliance matriarch - who has been a regular face at the AGMS over the years - was dressed in a floral saree, complemented by a pendant featuring Lord Shrinathji in a chain of pearls.
I Get It From My Granny
The heiress, who was spotted sans husband Anand Piramal, was twinning with grandmother Kokilaben in an ivory kurta and plazzo set with floral motifs.
Following in Isha and Kokilaben Ambani's footsteps, Shloka, too, opted for a floral outfit, albeit in shades of a blueish-grey and pink for the event.
The couple tied the knot in March, after a year of celebrations that began after Akash proposed to her in Goa. The Ambani daughter-in-law turned 29-years-old last month, and the family created a special video with messages from each one of them for her.
A Family Affair
From flying to Jodhpur with the clan for Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas's nuptials and performing in the family dance at Isha's Udaipur celebrations, to being seeing around town with Nita and Shloka Ambani, and featuring in Shloka's birthday video, Merchant seems to already be part of the family.
