If rumours are to be believed, Mukesh Ambani’s son Akash Ambani is all set to the tie the knot with Shloka Mehta, the youngest daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta this year.
While there is no official confirmation to this, rumours are that the announcement of the engagement will be made in the next few weeks and the wedding is planned for early December.
Akash is the eldest son of India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, and Shloka Mehta is the daughter of Russell Mehta, who heads Rosy Blue Diamonds.
The Ambanis and Mehtas know each other well and Akash and Shloka even studied together at Dhirubhai Ambani International School.
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.
She is youngest of three children of Russell and Mona Mehta. Mona is said to be a relative of fugitive diamond jeweller, Nirav Modi.
