Shloka Mehta is increasingly turning out to be one of the most sought after individuals in Mumbai’s celebrity circle; even though she has no connection to either Bollywood or the entertainment industry. She’s perhaps the first member of India’s richest family to generate such intense media interest. The daughter-in-law of Mukesh and Nita Ambani had to deal with eagle-eyed paparazzi of Mumbai over the weekend as she stepped out for a meal.
Shloka was spotted outside a restaurant in Mumbai’s upmarket Bandra-Kurla complex. Dressed in a simple white Maggy sleeved top and royal blue palazzo pants, Shloka looked quite a stunner. If that was not enough, the new Ambani bahu upped the glamour quotient with her accessories such as a pair of blue slip-ons and a matching handbag.
No sooner did Shloka’s photos find a place on Instagram, the 28-year-old daughter-in-law of India’s richest family faced a deluge of overwhelmingly positive comments with many declaring her as the new style icon in town. One fan commented, “How well dressed she is, royalty in a dignified manner.” “Always dignified,” commented another.
Shloka’s love for expensive handbags is no longer a secret. Not too long ago, when she made a rare public appearance with her mother-in-law and to-be sister-in-law Radhika Merchant, she was seen carrying an exorbitantly priced Hermes Birkin handbag.
Shloka has always been quite popular with social media users, who appear to be smitten by her simplicity despite hailing from a billionaire family. We had recently reported how Shloka was actively involved in philanthropic activities as photos of her feeding Mumbai’s poor children surfaced. Throwback photos of the Ambani bahu helping Mumbai’s not-so-fortunate children had set the internet on fire.
Last month, when she celebrated her first birthday as Nita Ambani’s daughter-in-law, the Ambani family had recorded a special video with Mukesh Ambani, husband Akash Ambani and his brother Anant expressing their desire for Shloka to become a mother before her next birthday.
