According to reliable sources, Mukesh Ambani’s eldest son Akash may soon be betrothed to Shloka, the youngest daughter of Russell Mehta, Managing Director, Rosy Blue India, one of the country’s leading diamond companies. The members of both Ambani and Mehta family and a few close friends were present at their engagement ceremony that took place in a five-star resort in Goa, with the probability of a wedding come December. Shloka is the daughter of Russell Mehta, head of Rosy Blue Diamonds, formerly known as B. Arunkumar & Co., which is now ranked among the top half dozen diamond companies of India. In 2014, Shloka joined her family business as the Director at the Rosy Blue Foundation, the philanthropic arm of their diamond manufacturing company. She is also the co-founder of ConnectFor, an app which matches volunteers with the NGOs.According to the sources, before exchanging the rings, Akash went down on his knees to propose to Shloka. In a few pictures from the ceremony, the big rock on Shloka’s finger is grabbing eyeballs. As it was a small ceremony, the entire Ambani and Mehta family was dressed-up very casually for the day engagement. Mukesh, Neeta and Kokilaben Ambani, all were seen wearing light-weight and flowy fabrics. While Akash wore a nautical line T-shirt and white pants, along with a blue blazer, his better-half, Shloka chose a rather unusual gown, which wasn’t too blingy or OTT.It caught many netizens’ attention and some even noticed that it is the same gown that Alia Bhatt wore in Black colour for IFFI Awards that too took place in Goa. The chic gown is from a London-based designer website, Needle And Thread. It is from their bridal autumn/winter 2017 collection. This stunning piece has been named ‘Marie Gown’ and the one Shloka is wearing is in dove grey colour. The antique lace dress is delicately embroidered, and it has ruffled frills in the lower half. Well, you must be thinking that it must a very expensive dress as soon-to-be Ambani bahu is wearing it for her engagement ceremony! Sorry to disappoint you all, but it is quite an affordable dress. We had never thought that a millionaire’s beti and bahu will be wearing such an affordable dress on her engagement ceremony. Unlike other rich kids, who usually prefer big brands with heavy price tags, she chose a rather subtle dress for herself that cost her only £875 (Rs 80,500 approximately). Not that expensive, right? The dress was contemporary, delicate and perfect for the Goa weather. Also, she paired her classy gown with minimal jewellery and makeup. She chose to keep it simple and looked nothing but gorgeous.Our heartiest congratulations to the newly-engaged couple, Akash and Shloka.
