Akash Ambani, eldest son of Indian billionaire and chief of Reliance Industries Limited, Mukesh Ambani, has been engaged to Shloka Mehta, daughter of diamond magnate and MD of the Rosy Blue empire, Russell Mehta.

Though, there has been no official statement on the marriage from the families yet, a local news website Nagpur Today has claimed that the wedding ceremony had been planned for later this year.

PTI reports that the two families and close friends gathered at a plush five-star resort in Goa on Saturday for a "get-to-know-each-other" before the formal engagement.

While the dates of either the wedding or engagement of Akash Ambani have not been finalised yet, the couple is likely to get formally engaged in June and the wedding is likely to be held in early December. Incidentally, their wedding too had taken place in Goa. "I have known Shloka since she was four and we are all delighted to welcome her to our home and our hearts", she said. Her mother, Mona Mehta is said to be a relative of the disgraced diamond jeweller, Nirav Modi. Shloka is the youngest daughter of Russell Mehta, managing director of Rosy Blue India, one of the country's leading diamond companies.

The Ambanis and Mehtas know each other well and even Akash and Shloka are alumni of the famed Dhirubhai Ambani International School (DAIS), in the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai.

She is the director of Rosy Blue Foundation since July 2014. Shloka also has a masters degree in law from the London School of Law and Political Science. Akash is on the board of Reliance Jio, the groups fast growing telecom venture. She is also the co-founder of ConnectFor, a platform that makes it easy and convenient for people to volunteer in Mumbai, the Free Press Journal reported.
