Popular Business Tycoon Mukesh Ambani and wife Nita Ambani’s elder son Akash Ambani recently got engaged to prominent diamond magnate Russel Mehta’s daughter Shloka Mehta in a hush-hush ceremony in Goa last week. Since the engagement ceremony was a private one, it was only attended by Akash and Shloka’s close friends and family.
However, after coming back to Mumbai, the Ambani’s family threw a lavish post-engagement bash on Monday in Antilia for their high-profile friends from the Bollywood as well as Cricket world.
Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Karan Johar were amongst the first ones to arrive at the Ambani’s house to congratulate the newly engaged couple. The charming lady, Aishwarya Rai was also caught by the shutterbugs making an entry with her darling daughter, Aaradhya.
Aamir Khan’s wife, Kiran Rao was also spotted posing for the cameras with Karan Johar at the bash. But we are surprised to know that Aamir skipped the celebrations even amid reports that Ambani will be funding his mega budget film on Mahabharata.
Film maker Rajkumar Hirani, John Abraham, Harbhajan, Zaheer Khan and wife Sagarika Ghatge also turned up at the party to give blessings to the couple.
For the post-engagement bash, Shloka was seen dressed at her best in a golden gown teamed with minimal jewellery. While Akash looked dapper dressed in his blue tuxedo.
Here are all the dreamy pictures from their post-engagement bash. Scroll down and take a look:

Earlier on Monday, Shloka and Akash were also spotted seeking blessings at Mumbai’s Siddhivinayak Temple along with the family.
As per recent reports by a leading media organisation, it has been told that Akash and Shloka are expected to tie the knot in early December, with celebrations spread across four-five days, possibly from December 8 to December 12, at a five star hotel in Mumbai.
The Ambanis and Mehtas have known each other for years. Akash and Shloka are told to have studied together at the Dhirubhai Ambani International School (DAIS). In a recent talk with a leading daily, Akash Ambani’s mother Nita Ambani said, “Mukesh and I have given very strong foundation to our kids and even larger wings to fly – they have the freedom to take decisions for themselves and of course, choose whom they would want to spend the rest of their lives with. Marrying the one you love is gratifying and heart-warming. I have known Shloka since she was four and we are all delighted to welcome her to our home and our hearts.”
