Barely a few months after it was reported that billionaire businessman Mukesh Ambani’s daughter Isha Ambani will tie the knot with Anand Parimal, India’s richest family is believed to have begun the wedding preparations.
According to latest media reports, Isha will get married to Anand at Italy’s famous Lake Como and her wedding will take place before her brother Akash Ambani’s marriage. Isha’s engagement is likely to be held in Mumbai on 21 September at Antilia, the Ambani residence in South Mumbai. Among those likely to attend will be Bollywood’s top names and celebrities from other background.
Anand had proposed to Isha at a temple in Mahabaleshwar in May this year. 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.
Anand and Isha have been long-time friends and both the families have known each other for over four decades.
Earlier this year, Mukesh Ambani’s elder son, Akash Ambani, was engaged to Shloka Mehta, the youngest daughter of billionaire diamond trader Russell Mehta, the owner of Rosy Blue Diamonds. The engagement took place at a small ceremony in Goa on Saturday evening with Mukesh Ambani and his mother Kokilaben being present.
Akash too will tie the knot towards the end of the year. It’s not clear whether the weddings of both Akash and Isha will be together.
