Shloka Mehta was born into the billionaire family of Russel and Mona Mehta before she entered the family of Asia’s richest family, the Ambanis. Ever since she became the daughter-in-law of Mukesh and Nita Ambani, she has been garnering considerable media attention. Shloka has become the darling of Mumbai’s paparazzi because of her affable nature and rare humility. Even amidst intense media spotlight, not many had seen Shloka speak publicly or give a TV interview. Now a throwback video from her wedding, shows the Ambani bahu exchanging wedding vows with husband Akash Ambani.
Soon after completing the mandatory encircling of the fire seven times, both Shloka Mehta and Akash stopped to read out their respective vows. Akash said, “We will respect, cherish each other’s feelings and fulfill the responsibilities of married life with honour.”
Shloka, for her part, read, “In happiness and sorrow, we shall conduct ourselves in dignity. In sickness and health, we shall be together.”
Akash read, “With body, mind and soul, we shall be faithful to each other.”
Shloka concluded, “We shall have equal status and authority every moment of our life and shoulder the responsibilities of caring for our home and family.”
No sooner did she complete her line, the camera panned to her sister Diya, who was seen sobbing. Also getting emotional was Shloka’s Dad Russel Mehta. The wedding ceremony was attended by the top names from Bollywood including Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan among others.
The other adorable aspect of their wedding rituals was Nita Ambani applying a black spot on Shloka’s cheek in a bid to ward off evil eyes from her daughter-in-law. This was followed by Shloka’s mother Mona blessing the couple by planting a kiss on her daughter and son-in-law.
Shloka and Akash had tied the knot in March at Mumbai’s newly constructed Jio World Centre in the Bandra Kurla Complex.
