Meet Radhika Merchant: Chhoti Bahu of Nita & Mukesh Ambani

It is the season of weddings in the Ambani household. Nita Ambani and Mukesh Ambani’s twin children Akash and Isha recently got engaged. Akash’s engagement with Shloka Mehta was a star-studded and one of the most exuberant and opulent affairs of this year. Their engagement celebrations went on for a week with mehendi, sangeet, pre-engagement bash and then the final engagement party. Isha Ambani too got engaged with Anand Piramal in May this year.

 

After his elder siblings got engaged, seems like Anant Ambani will also follow in their footsteps and will get hitched to Radhika Merchant. Anant Ambani, 23, is the youngest son of Nita and Mukesh Ambani. He had been in a relationship with girlfriend Radhika Merchant for a long time. Their relationship has sparked many rumours about their engagement and wedding. But no one from their families has given their confirmation about the same.

There might not be any official news about Anant and Radhika’s engagement, but there have been a couple of instances in the recent past that have confirmed that after Shloka Mehta, Radhika Merchant is all set to become ‘chhoti bahu’ of the Ambani household. Radhika came into many people’s attention when she danced to ‘ghoomar’ song from Padmaavat along with Isha Ambani and Shloka Mehta during Isha Ambani’s engagement.

Then on the occasion of Akash and Shloka’s engagement party, Shah Rukh Khan teased Anant about Radhika. This confirmed our suspicions.

 

After Akash and Shloka’s engagement, the Ambani family went to Siddhivinayak Temple. Radhika was also spotted with them.

 

A few weeks ago, a picture of Anant and Radhika surfaced on the internet. In the picture, they both were seen wearing green robes and were gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. By looking at the picture, one can guess that the two are pretty close and are in a relationship.

 

While a lot has been spoken and discussed aboutShloka Mehta and Anand Piramal, Radhika Merchant’s identity has not been disclosed yet. Well, here’s all you need to know about Radhika Merchant.

Radhika is the daughter of Viren Merchant, the CEO and Vice Chairman of Encore Healthcare. Radhika has done her schooling from Cathedral and John Connon School, Mumbai and École Mondiale World School, Mumbai. She has completed her IB Diploma from BD Somani International School. Radhika is a graduate of the New York University, in Politics and Economics. When she returned to India, she worked as a sales executive at Isprava, which is a real estate company.

Radhika’s hobbies include trekking, swimming and reading. About her hobbies, she was once quoted saying: “To go trekking or just relaxing in the calm and secluded areas of any place”. She also revealed the reason why she returned to India after completing her degree. She said: “To find a place where my work would matter, and I could make a real contribution to the organization I would join”.  

In the interview, Radhika also spoke about working in the luxury space sector. She said: Radhika shared in the same interview, “I had never given much thought to the concept of luxury while growing up. However, after joining Isprava, my idea of luxury has evolved. Earlier I was put off by the mentality behind luxury because I equated it with a large logo on a handbag or a specific pattern on a piece of fabric but after joining Isprava and understanding the brand’s idea of luxury I have learnt to appreciate it. To us, luxury is the seamless process of buying a home and a hassle-free holiday experience.”

 

From the looks of it, Anant and Radhika are together and very much in love. We wish the lovely couple all the happiness in the world. Hope they get married soon!
