Akash Mukesh Ambani, the son of Mukesh and Nita Ambani, was born on October 23, 1991, in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. His father is the chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries Limited, while his mother is the founder of Reliance Foundation.

Akash’s grandfather, the late Dhirubhai Ambani, was an Indian business tycoon and founded Reliance Industries in 1966. He is the nephew of businessman Anil Ambani and former actress Tina Ambani. Akash has a twin sister, Isha, with whom he currently shares an apartment in Mumbai, and a younger brother, Anant.

He attended Campion School in Mumbai for six to seven years before moving to the Dhirubhai Ambani International School, which is run by his mother. Akash went to the US for higher studies and earned a degree in Economics from Brown University. Akash has always been interested in sports, especially cricket, and became a fan of the English Premier League football club, Arsenal, after watching their captain, Patrick Vieira, score the final goal in the penalty shootout of the 2005 FA Cup Final between Arsenal and Manchester United.

Initially, he couldn’t get involved with their IPL team, Mumbai Indians, as his younger brother, Anant, was handling the affairs of the team, which Reliance bought in 2008. However, he participated in the 2014 IPL auctions and has been responsible for managing the team since then. Akash is also a collector of various sports memorabilia and enjoys watching an Arsenal match with former footballer Thierry Henry.

Akash began dating Shloka Mehta, the daughter of businessman Russell Arunbhai Mehta, when they were both in their late teens. Shloka’s father is the managing director of Rosy Blue India, the Indian arm of the Belgian-Indian diamond company Rosy Blue. They got married in a traditional Hindu ceremony at Jio World Centre on March 9, 2019.

After completing high school, Shloka Mehta enrolled in Princeton University’s anthropology program, followed by a master’s degree in law and anthropology from the London School of Economics.

During their final days of college, Akash, an alumnus of Brown University, reportedly proposed to Shloka Mehta. In March 2018, a special engagement party was held in Goa to celebrate the occasion, which was attended by Mukesh Ambani, Kokilaben, Nita Ambani, and other close family members.

On March 9, 2019, Akash and Shloka exchanged their vows in a traditional Hindu ceremony at the Jio World Centre in BKC, Mumbai, in a grand celebration that has come to epitomize the term “big fat Indian wedding.” The event was attended by many prominent individuals from the entertainment, sports, and political worlds, including Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, and Amitabh Bachchan, who were seated in the front row.
