Here's a glance at the Ambani clan during the engagement bash:
The news of Akash, the eldest son of Mukesh Ambani and Neeta Ambani, and Shloka Mehta, daughter of diamond businessman Russell Mehta first surfaced earlier this year. They exchanged rings at an informal ceremony in Goa in March. While the wedding ceremony is expected to happen sometime in December this year, the Ambani family is yet to confirm the date.
And the wedding bells will keep ringing. Keep in mind that Isha Ambani, Akash's twin sister, is also likely to marry Anand Piramal, son of business tycoon Ajay Piramal, in December. They got engaged in May this year.
