Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani’s daughter Isha Ambani is set to tie the knot with Anand Piramal, son of business tycoon Ajay Piramal. Anand proposed to Isha at a temple in Mahabaleshwar over the weekend. The date for the wedding has not been finalised yet.
In April, her twin brother Akash Ambani was engaged to Shloka Mehta, daughter of Russell Mehta, promoter of Rosy Blue Diamonds.
Ms. Isha Ambani is likely to marry Mr. Anand Piramal in December, around the same time Mr. Akash Ambani will tie the knot.
Mr. Anand Piramal and Ms. Isha Ambani have been long-time friends and both their families share a strong bond of friendship for over four decades, said the source.
Mr. Anand Piramal is the founder of Piramal Realty and before that, he founded Piramal Swasthya, a rural healthcare initiative that treats 40,000 patients a day. Mr. Anand, a Harvard graduate, was previously the youngest president of the Indian Merchant Chamber-Youth Wing, and acknowledges that Mr. Mukesh Ambani had encouraged him to become an entrepreneur.
Ms. Isha, 26, is a Yale graduate, and is a director on the boards of Reliance Jio and Reliance Retail. Credited with instilling a culture of youthful dynamism in Reliance’s businesses, she will complete her management course from Stanford by June.
Mr. Anand Piramal proposed to Ms. Isha Ambani at a temple in Mahabaleshwar. The couple celebrated the occasion with a lunch joined by family members from both sides.
