These days it’s rare to not spot Shloka Mehta with her mother-in-law Nita Ambani whenever they are out and about in Mumbai. Mukesh Ambani’s wife has shown time and again just how protective she is about her daughter-in-law. The two have been spotted together on several occasions since Shloka married Akash Ambani in March this year. So, when designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla recently shared a throwback photo of Ambanis, the Bachchans, Deepika Padukone, Gauri Khan, Amrita Singh and Sonali Bendre, many were surprised not to find Shloka in the frame.

The reason for Shloka’s absence from the photo was because the photo shared by the designer duo was clicked in 2012, long before Shloka had formally become the part of the Ambani family.

While sharing the throwback photo, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla wrote how in 2012, the Ambanis had welcomed them in their posh south Mumbai house. They wrote, “Mrs Ambani’s faith in our work and her absolute championing of the book is unprecedented. We showed her a dummy copy and she put herself behind it one hundred percent and hosted its India launch at their residence. To have that sort of belief in our work, that level of encouragement and support is priceless. We are eternally grateful to her.”
