Anant Ambani, the youngest son of Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani, got engaged to Radhika Merchant, the daughter of Viren and Shaila Merchant, on Thursday, 29 December.
The couple had their roka ceremony at the Shrinathji Temple in Rajasthan's Nathdwara, according to reports.
As per a report by The Indian Express, an official statement by Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) read, “The young couple spent the day at the temple seeking Lord Shrinathji’s blessings for their upcoming union and participated in the traditional raj-bhog-shringaar ceremonies at the temple. The family and friends will together celebrate the happy occasion later today."
Parimal Nathwani, Director-Corporate Affairs, Reliance Industries Limited, took to twitter to write, "Heartiest congratulations to dearest Anant and Radhika for their Roka ceremony at the Shrinathji temple in Nathdwara. May Lord Shrinath ji’s blessings be with you always."
Earlier this year in June, the Ambani family hosted a grand Arangetram for Radhika. The event was attended by several Bollywood celebrities including Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, and filmmaker Raju Hirani, among others.
For the unversed, Arangetram is a dancer's completion of their formal training in classical dance.
Anant and Radhika were childhood friends. Anant studied at Brown University in the USA, while Radhika is a graduate of New York University.
