2018 is going to see not just one, but two Ambanis tying the knot. Just a little over a month after Akash Ambani proposed to girlfriend Shloka Mehta in a private ceremony in Goa, Nita and Mukesh Ambani’s daughter Isha Ambani made things official with her fiancé, businessman Anand Piramal too. Twin sister to Akash, Isha was proposed to at a temple in Mahabaleshwar over the weekend. After saying yes to her beau, the couple celebrated their big moment with their parents and family members. Before the country gears up for both the Ambani kids’ big days, here’s a quick look at everything you need to know about Anand Piramal.
Get to know Anand Piramal
Son of Swati Piramal and businessman Ajay Piramal, 33-year-old Anand Piramal is a Harvard Business School graduate and has also studied economics at the University of Pennsylvania. He is currently the executive director of Piramal Enterprises, which is said to be valued at $4 billion. Isha Ambani’s future husband has already founded two startup companies since leaving business school: a real estate startup called Piramal Realty, and Piramal eSwasthya, a rural healthcare startup that treats close to 40,000 patients on a daily basis. He also holds the title of the youngest president of the Indian Merchant Chamber, Youth Wing.
Anand Piramal’s special proposal for Isha Ambani
While Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta celebrated their engagement with a sundown party in Goa, Anand Piramal and Isha Ambani did things a little differently. The 33-year-old entrepreneur popped the question during a visit to a temple in Mahabaleshwar this weekend. Post the proposal, the couple celebrated with an intimate lunch with Nita and Mukesh Ambani, Swati and Ajay Piramal, grandparents Kokilaben Ambani and Purnimaben Dalal, Akash Ambani, Anant Ambani, and Anand Piramal’s sister Nandini Piramal, among other close family members. Isha kept her look for the occasion simple with an oversized white tee and grey leggings.
Anand Piramal’s relationship with Mukesh Ambani
No stranger to the Ambani family, Anand Piramal recently spoke out about Mukesh Ambani’s influence on his career choices, and thanked him for his guidance. “I asked him whether I should get into consulting or banking,” Piramal revealed. “He told me, ‘Bring a consultant is like watching cricket or commentating about cricket, while being an entrepreneur is like playing cricket. You can’t learn how to play cricket by commentating. If you want to do something, be an entrepreneur in the long term, and start now.’”
Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s wedding plans
Just like Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta, Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal will be tying the knot this December, most likely in India itself.
