Radhika Merchant: Mukesh Ambani is a father-figure to me: Radhika Merchant on her equation with each member of the Ambani family | – Times of India

On Day 1 of her pre-wedding celebrations in Jamnagar, to-be choti bahu of Mukesh and Nita Ambani, Radhika Merchant not only thanked everyone for making her day so special but also expressed her heartfelt gratitude to both their family. However, what stood out in her speech was her love and gratitude for her to-be father-in-law Mukesh Ambani, whom she called to be a champion of her relationship with Anant from the very early stages! Radhika also thanked all the strong Ambani women– Nita Ambani, Isha Ambani, and Shloka Mehta– for being an inspiration and pillar of support for her.
“Thank you so, so much for being here. Like Anant said, we are extremely humbled that you have all made it from around the world to come to our home. Thank you from me, Anant and both our families. When Anant and I decided to get married the one place we wanted to celebrate was Jamnagar. It is really very close in our hearts; the hard work of our families, and the dedication that Nita aunty has for making all of our dreams a reality has made this possible. We have been extremely, extremely indulged. I have seen all the events with all of you for the first time today. I had no idea what was going to happen. I was so surprised when I walked in.”
Crediting and thanking Nita Ambani for pulling together the grand three-day pre-wedding celebrations in Jamnagar, Radhika further said, “People are asking me ‘Is that normal?’. I said, ‘It is normal if you have a mother-in-law like Nita aunty. So, thank you so, so much for doing this for us and letting us enjoy the process of our wedding.”
She added, “Anant and I are so, so luck to have some of the most amazing women on this Earth as our influencers. Nita aunty- who will move heaven and Earth for her children, Isha– who is our most fierce protector, Shloka– you are the kindest person and I would be completely lost without you. Anjali Merchant (Radhika’s sister)– you are the force behind anything good that I have in me. Mumma- you are our safe place, you have taught us how to be our most authentic selves, and you have taught us to find a silver lining behind any grey cloud and thank you so much for that.”

She then thanked the men in Merchant and Ambani families by saying, “The men in our families are special too— I didn’t forget about you guys! Papa (her father Viren Merchant)- you are the most encouraging man I know; you have built the confidence of the three women around you with utmost love and care. The example you have set as a father and a husband has shaped my life in so many ways, you will never know. My brothers– Anand Piramal, Akash Ambani, and Aman (her brother-in-law)– you bring so much laughter into our lives. You are our true kings of comedy but at the same time, you are our most dependable alies. I love you three so much.”

Radhika then thanked Mukesh Ambani, the Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries who is also the richest Indian person. She said, “And Mukesh uncle, you have been a father-figure in my life from very early on in our relationship. I truly hope for everybody that they have a champion for their relationship like you have been a champion for ours.”
Radhika Merchant and Anant Ambani knew each other for a few years, before having their Roka ceremony in NathDwara temple in Rajasthan. Post this, they had an elaborate Gol Dhana or engagement ceremony in the Ambani house Antilia in January 2023. In February this year, their Lagan Lakhvanu ceremony was held in Jamnagar. Anant and Radhika are all set to tie the knot on July 12, 2024.
