The last time the Ambani family surprised us was when they got Salman Khan to act as an extra in a dance where an Ambani son played the lead. The surprise soon melted away as we got to see visuals and videos of Bollywood's who's who serving the guests their meal.
The latest video from the family, which was reportedly leaked online, comes as consolation to millions of women in the country who are annoyed by the question - "So, beta, when are you going to give us good news?" The Ambani family has just established that you can be REALLY REALLY REALLY rich and STILL be obsessed with good news.
For the birthday of Shloka Mehta, who is married to Akash Ambani, the family got together to make a video wishing their bahu and fervently hoping that she gives them a child soon. Apart from expressing their immense happiness that Shloka/Shloku was now MRS SHLOKA AKASH AMBANI (it was in caps, we assure you), the video has Ambani family members hint-hinting that Shloka, who has been married for a grand total of four months, should or will become a mother soon.
The video is narrated in fairytale style, with Shloka characterised as a princess and Akash her prince. The "My Favourite Things" song from Sound of Music is in service of the Ambani family in the video, to narrate the happy story. In between, the family members, including Shloka's parents and friends, cut in to greet her. The video has Mukesh Ambani hoping he becomes a grandfather before her next birthday, Anant Ambani hoping he becomes a kaku soon, and Akash Ambani *winking* and saying he's looking forward to creating "new things" with her. He also adds a "You know what I mean!" in case Shloka did not get the point already.
Just happened to see the Ambani video wishing Shloka Mehta a happy birthday. Disturbing. Watch it to understand both subtle and direct pressure on women to have childrenâ€” Vasudha Venugopal (@vasudha_ET) July 13, 2019
Either she is already expecting or she will be under immense pressure to conceive, going by this video and how her father in law, husband and brother in law have made it clear that she will have to be a mother before her next birthday. Oh no Shloku.â€” Amith P (@amithpr) July 14, 2019
The video has led to speculation that Shloka may be pregnant already.
Unnecessary fuss abt the ambani video...what if she is already pregnant and they r just stating that...â€” à¤•à¥‹à¤®à¤² :) (@Komal_Indian) July 14, 2019
There r a lot of reasons to judge the rich...but this is definitely not one of them
There's also Nita Ambani telling us all about the different teas that Shloka has introduced to their lives - in case you wish to know - and Isha Ambani recalling their long friendship.
