When Isha Ambani, the daughter of India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, got married to Anand Piramal earlier this week, the entire Bollywood descended at Ambanis’ Altamount Road residence, ‘Antilia.’
Among those who attended the wedding were two of Bollywood’s biggest names, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. The two stars, who recently acted together in Thugs of Hindostan, were seen serving food to the guests attending the wedding.
Aamir too was seen serving food with a smile on his face.
Amitabh Bachchan was then seen reading an emotional note for the bridegroom on behalf of her father Mukesh Ambani. As Bachchan delivered Ambani’s words, Isha Ambani looked emotional.
The Ambani family had organised a lavish pre-wedding function on 8 December in Uadaipur, where the Bollywood stars and foreign guests including Hillary Clinton too had arrived. Among those performing at the pre-wedding event was singer Beyonce. The highlight of the event last week was Salman Khan performing as a background dancer as Ambani’s son Anant Ambani performed at Koi Mil Gaya song.
The newlywed couple hosted their first reception on Thursday at their new home, Gulita, a five-storey Worli sea facing bungalow in Mumbai. Notable among those attended the reception were Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Senior BJP leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Cricket legends Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev, Ratan Tata and Cyrus Poonawalla.
33-year-old Parimal is the founder of Piramal Realty, one of India’s leading real estate companies, while Isha is on the boards of Reliance Jio and Reliance Retail.
Isha is a Yale University graduate and has a degree in Psychology and South Asian Studies. She’s currently pursuing MBA from the Graduate School of Business, Stanford. Anand, for his part, is a graduate from Harvard Business School. He’s reported to have thanked Mukesh Ambani for pushing him to become an entrepreneur. Besides establishing Piramal Realty, Anand had also founded Piramal Swasthya, a rural healthcare initiative that reportedly treats 40,000 patients every day.
