In a 40-second video uploaded by the former Infosys board member, Ambani, dressed in a white kurta-pyjama, had gathered with his family on the vast terrace of their Mumbai residence 'Antilia' to thank the COVID-19 warriors by ringing bells, beating small-sized gongs and clapping.
While the faces of the Ambani women were not clear, the RIL honcho's mother Kokilaben and his daughter-in-law Shloka were seen, enthusiastically ringing the bell.
Son Akash Ambani was also seen holding the gong, as he took a quick digital break.
