IN A lovely and rare gesture, billionaire tycoon Reliance Industries Ltd Chairman Mukesh Ambani, along with his wife Nita, let their hair down briefly to shake a leg at the engagement ceremony of his third son Anant with Radhika Merchant.
Elder son Akash and wife Shloka, twin-sister Isha with her husband Anand Piramal joined the Ambani couple on the make-shift stage in their iconic Antilia building on Thursday night.
The country’s numero-uno power-family swayed to the 1994 superhit song ‘Wah, Wah Ramji, Jodi Kya Banayi’ from the movie ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun?’, as many in the audience also couldn’t resist and joined to dance near their seats.
The mega-surprise, ostensibly planned and executed by Nita Ambani, thrilled the select audience, with an endearing Mukesh bhai, not exactly a JT (John Travolta!) in his steps, bravely grinned and attempted to keep pace with his supple and nubile wife, though their children displayed more talent, but everyone loved every moment.
Clapping and cheering them was a distinguished gathering comprising the Ambani family, their ‘samdhis’ from the daughter-in-law (Shloka) and son-in-law (Piramal) sides, guests and other invitees.
