Images of the younger Ambani scion, Anant looking cosy and happy with Radhika Merchant are doing the rounds, sparking off rumours that the two have got engaged. This comes on the heels of the string of engagements in the Mukesh-Nita Ambani household. This April, elder son Aakash Ambani got engaged to Shloka Mehta. This was followed by their daughter Isha Ambani getting engaged to Anand Piramal. Now it appears to be the youngest son, Anant Ambani’s turn.
Excitement broke when the picture of the two youngsters was spotted on Anant Ambani’s unofficial Instagram account. The post read, “I started my new journey with her ❤ I got engaged with Radhika.”
However, there has been no official announcement from the Ambani family yet. Till they confirm the news, the engagement is not being splashed in the media. Fact however remains that Radhika and Anant do seem like a couple happily in love. They have reportedly been close friends since a while. Radhika’s closeness to the Ambani family is also there to see, as she was spotted dancing alongside Isha Ambani and Shloka Mehta at Ambani’s house party celebrating Isha and Anand Piramal’s engagement. This has been a grand affair attended by the who’s who of Bollywood, including Shah Rukh Khan, Sachin Tendulkar and Ranbir Kapoor.
Radhika apparently completed her schooling in Mumbai and later studied Political Science at New York University. She is actively involved with animal welfare associations. Animal welfare is a common interest she shares with her alleged fiancé. Known to be religious, Anant is also passionate about animals, with his favourite being elephants. He is known for his support of animal shelters and is devoted to his own pet dogs as well. Perfectly matched, we say!
