WATCH: Rare dance performance by Shloka Mehta with mother-in-law Nita Ambani at friend’s wedding


When Shloka Mehta tied the knot with Akash Ambani in March this year, one of the highlights of the wedding functions was a dance performance by her mother-in-law Nita Ambani. Seven months on, Shloka decided to match the dancing skills of her saas when the two performed at a friend’s wedding over the weekend.

The occasion was the wedding of Dheer, a childhood friend of Shloka and Akash in Mumbai. Film producer Tanuj Garg, a close friend of Dheer’s socialite mother Chhaya Momaya, shot the video and shared it on his Instagram page. In this rare video, both Shloka and Nita Ambani are seen shaking a leg to the popular Bollywood track from the film Kisna. 

Tanuj also shared a solo dance performance by Chhaya as he wrote, “Looking ethereal, @chhaya.momaya. Congrats! And my best wishes @dnm_roots and @molfarnist.”

While the world knows that Nita Ambani has been a trained Bharatnatyam dancer, not many knew about the dancing skills of an otherwise reclusive and shy Shloka. But the affable Ambani bahu was seen being a perfect match to her lovely mother-in-law. At one point, Shloka was seen twirling around with a woman, who appears to be Mamta Dalal, Nita Ambani’s identically similar-looking sister.

Also joining the rare family dance party was Isha Ambani, who too was seeing giving an impressive performance at the wedding party.

While Nita had opted for a traditional red lehenga choli, Isha was seen dancing in an embellished Anarkali. As for Shloka, her hot-pink choli had cowboy style tassels and a matching embellished lehenga. 

Dheer, who is a close friend of Akash, got married to Ukranian filmmaker Daria, seen here with the young Ambanis.

Shloka Mehta is the daughter of billionaire diamond merchant Russel Mehta. She got married to Akash in March this year with the who’s who of global politics, entertainment, business, politics and sports attending their wedding. Akash and Shloka have been childhood friends.

Ever since they got married, they have become one of the most sought after celebrity couples.
