Business tycoon and Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani's daughter Isha will get married to Anand Piramal, the son of corporate magnates Ajay Piramal and Swati Piramal, in December this year.
Anand and Isha have been long-time friends, and the families have known each other for over four decades.
Anand, who reportedly proposed to Isha at a temple in Mahabaleshwar, is the founder of Piramal Realty, one of India's leading real estate companies.
Prior to Piramal Realty, Anand had launched Piramal Swasthya, a rural healthcare initiative that treats 40,000 patients a day. Anand's father, Ajay Piramal, is the Chairman of the Piramal Group of Companies, whose presence can be seen in a wide range of industries including pharmaceuticals and real estate financing.
Anand holds a Bachelor's Degree in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania and a Masters in Business Administration from Harvard Business School. The twin sister of Akash Ambani, Isha is on the Boards of Reliance Jio and Reliance Retail.
She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and South Asian Studies from Yale University and will be completing her Master in Business Administration programme from the Graduate School of Business, Stanford, by June.
In March this year, Isha’s twin brother Akash got engaged to Shloka Mehta, daughter of diamond magnate and MD of the Rosy Blue empire Russell Mehta. It was reported that two went school together and that Akash proposed to Shloka at a private ceremony in Goa. Akash currently heads strategy at Jio, Reliance Industry’s 4G service provider.
Shloka, the youngest of the three Mehta’s, is the Director of Rosy Blue Foundation and the co-founder of ConnectFor, an organisation that matches volunteers with NGOs that need them. According to reports, Akash-Shloka wedding is also being planned for December 2018.
