A Family of Billionaires

It’s a Rich Man’s World

In addition, Mukesh Ambani has absolutely no knowledge of fashion brands. He says that he is willing to wear anything that feels comfortable.


The Youngest Billionaire Heiress

Isha Ambani, the daughter of Mukesh and Nita, and is the youngest billionaire heiress. Isha, who was only 16 at the time, ranked second in the Forbes list of top ten billionaire heiresses in 2008. At that tender age, Isha was the owner of an 80-million dollar share of Reliance Industries.

Currently, Isha Ambani is a student at Yale. Her majors are South Asian Studies and Psychology.

Akash Ambani is the family’s oldest son. He is the twin brother of Isha and the elder brother of Anant Ambani.

According to numerous reports, Akash has attended the signing of several important Reliance Industries deals. His participation in such affairs is seen as his father’s attempt to get Akash ready for involvement in the family business.

    Family is the most important thing in life…a close knit family will always be a happy family. Its great to see that even after having so much Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ammbani, mother kokilaben, kids Akash Ambani and anant Ambani and Isha Ambani stillstay under one roof.

    • Adi

      Jun 7, 2013 at 2:57 am

      and why would that be? I dont see Ratan Tata and Ambani as anything different. i havent forgotten that Ratan Tata was bought in as Tata Group Chairman above people like Russi Mody just because he was a parsi and adopted into the Tata Family. It is not only how you got the opportunity; it is about what you do with it.

      in that matter, both Ratan Tata & Mukesh have built their own path and India is better to have two of those. i wouldn’t mind 20 more ambanis or tatas if each could create $10B more to the enterprise value

      • goggy

        Nov 25, 2013 at 10:30 am

        Russi Mody is a parsi too, Rattan was brought in for his ability to steer the group to a new height, which he did, where as mody had started behaving like the company was his private property

      Why so? Remember, Ambani started from ZERO. He never broke any law. He only found a way through them. You need ability to do that. Ofcourse not that Sir Ratan Tata is of any less respect. Just saying that both have made India proud equally.

        Behind every great fortune is an even greater crime…for any man to be a multi billionare from a zero capital position, a few shades of grey have to be draped over.

      It seems that u r pretty jealous with ambani’s success! They do have world class products.. I can say that coz I have worked in the reliance industry of Gujarat, jamnagar! So plz keep ur harsh opinions with u! Don’t be jealous n try comparing with the Richies!!!!

      • Anand

        May 27, 2013 at 6:37 am

        Sorry @uzma… I agree with Rupali too. Their products are not good and their after sales service is the WORST.
