If it’s Ambanis, it has got to be big. The first family of Indian business threw a party to celebrate the engagement of Isha Ambani – daughter of Mukesh and Nita Ambani -- to Anand Piramal -- son of top industrialist Ajay and Swati Piramal of the Piramal group – on Monday. The glitzy event, held in Mumbai, saw a galaxy of stars from Bollywood, cricket and India Inc descend. Among the Bollywood power set who attended the function were Karan Johar, Aamir Khan, Ranbir Kapoor along with director Ayan Mukerji and Shah Rukh Khan.
Karan Johar came in the same attire he wore for Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor’s mehendi party. A silk kurta with bold maroon flowers and chudidar, he looks pretty much dressed for the occasion. The rest, including Aamir, Ranbir and Shah Rukh, kept it casual and chic in western formals and semi formals.
Isha will wed Anand in December, sources say.
Anand and Isha have been friends for long and their families have shared a strong friendship for over four decades, the sources said. Anand is the founder of Piramal Realty and before that, he had founded Piramal Swasthaya, a rural healthcare initiative. He is also an executive director of the Piramal group.
Isha, on the other hand, is on the boards of Reliance Jio and Reliance Retail. Isha is the twin sister of Akash who was recently engaged to Shloka Mehta, daughter of diamantaire Russel Mehta. They too will tie the knot in December.
Also in attendance was star cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
