Shloka Mehta, the daughter of diamond merchant Russel Mehta, officially joined the richest family of India in March this year when she tied the knot with Akash Ambani, the son of Mukesh and Nita Ambani. Six months on, a video of Akash publicly kissing his wife on the popular demand of friends and relatives has gone viral.
In the video, both Akash and Shloka can be seen dancing in one of their post-wedding parties. As the newly-wedded couple shake a leg in front of their close friends and relatives, suddenly a group of people begin to shout, “We want a kiss. We want a kiss.” Far from being embarrassed by their demand, Akash quickly moves towards Shloka and plants a kiss on her lips.
Seconds later, while Akash moves towards his friends, seated nearby while a visibly blushing Shloka is seen trying to gain her composure. As expected, Akash’s bold act elicits a loud round of applause from his friends.
The video also evoked an overwhelmingly positive response from social media users on Instagram, where the video is being widely shared. One user wrote, “Wow amazingly showing each other we are making a coalition of happy life.” Another user simply wrote, “wow!” “Very nice Akash Ambani,” commented another user.

Akash and Shloka were childhood friends before they decided to turn their friendship into marital accord. Their marriage in March this year had become one of the biggest public events of recent memory. Top names from the world of politics, entertainment, sports, politics and business had attended their wedding party.
The Ambanis have been making sure that the spotlight from their daughter-in-law doesn’t diminish even months after her arrival into the family. They released a special video to celebrate Shloka’s first birthday as the Ambani bahu. The video had gone viral also because it had several members of the Ambani family including Mukesh Ambani, sons Ananth and Akash expressing their desire for Shloka to become a mother before her next birthday.
The family also invited top celebrities to their home in south Mumbai during this year’s Ganesh Chaturthi since this was the first festival since Shloka and Isha Ambani got married to Akash and Anand Piramal.
