Shloka Mehta is a true diamond: When Mukesh Ambani praised his ‘Badi Bahu’

Mar31,2024


India’s richest family, the Ambanis, never fail to inspire people– be it there personal or professional lives. Recently, Reliance‘s Managing Director, Mukesh Ambani was seen at the 50th India Gem & Jewellery Awards along with his ‘Badi Bahu’ Shloka Mehta. And at the event, Mukesh Ambani was all praise for her.
For the unversed, Shloka Mehta is the daughter of Russell and Mona Mehta. Russell Mehta is the Managing Director of Rosy Blue India, which has interests in diamonds, retail, real estate, etc.
In a video from the event, which is doing the rounds on social media, Mukesh Ambani can be seen praising Shloka and expressing how happy they are to have Shloka as their ‘bahu‘. Mukesh Ambani said at the event, “It is said of the Palapuris that they don’t share their businesses or their daughters. Their businesses go from one generation to another and their daughters only go to their community. We were fortunate five year ago, we got Russell’s daughter, Shloka, who came into the Ambani family. All my friends really thought that Nita is a great diamond picker and she picked Shloka from the Palanpuri family… But unfortunately, we were all wrong. It was Akash and Shloka, who were in school together and we didn’t very much realise their romance. So Shloka is the true diamond from your industry and from the Palanpuri industry in our family who radiates warmth and wisdom for all of us.”
