Although Shloka Mehta and Akash Ambani may not have much in common with Bollywood’s power couple Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput, a lot has been written about several similarities between them lately. First, it emerged that Shahid and Mira were expected to shift their base from Juhu to south Mumbai’s Worli area, where they have bought a sprawling duplex for Rs 56 crore. Worli also has a sea-facing bungalow Gulita owned by Isha Ambani, daughter of Mukesh and Nita Ambani. Estimated to be worth Rs 450 crore, This was gifted to her by her in-laws after she married Anand Piramal last year.
Mira, in particular, has been hogging the headlines for several uncanny similarities with Shloka Mehta, the adorable daughter-in-law of Mukesh and Nita Ambani. Last month, when Mira was spotted going to her gym wearing an expensive pair of luxe brand Balenciaga’s basic leather flat pool slides, many were quick to compare her with Shloka Mehta, who too had dominated news headlines when she flaunted Sophia Webster’s iconic butterfly heels, which was believed to have cost the Ambani bahu Rs 80,000.
Last month when Mira stepped out of her house without makeup, it was reported that the 24-year-old celebrity wife had successfully imitated Shloka Mehta, who’s also known for sporting the same look.
Both Shahid and Mira were absent when Nita and Mukesh Ambani welcomed the galaxy of stars at their south Mumbai residence Antilia on 2 September. The Ambanis had made lavish arrangements to mark this year’s Ganesh Chaturthi since this was the first major festival since Isha Ambani married Anand Piramal and Akash Ambani entered wedlock with Shloka Mehta. The absence of Shahid and Mira also assumed significance since both had turned many heads at the reception of Shloka and Akash in March this year.
While the wedding reception of Shloka and Akash were attended by Mumbai’s who’s who including Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Sidharth Malhotra, Kajol, Kiara Advani and Juhi Chawla, it was Mira and Shahid who had stolen the thunder from everyone at the party.
Bollywood’s power couple had made many heads turn as they arrived at the reception venue. Shahid was dressed in a black sherwani, while Mira had chosen a pink lehenga for herself. Together, they looked no less than a royal couple themselves.
Both had arrived for the reception hand-in-hand. Many felt that Shahid had even briefly flirted with his wife publicly while posing for the camera.
The Ambanis celebrated this year’s Ganesh Chaturthi with huge fanfare with Mumbai’s top celebrities attending the function. They included Amitabh Bachchan and family, Aamir Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, Jacky Shroff, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and MNS chief Raj Thackeray among others.
