Ambanis play hosts at future daughter-in-law Radhika Merchant’s arangetram

Mukesh Ambani made a rare public appearance after long on Sunday night with Nita Ambani for Radhika Merchant’s arangetram


Sunday night saw the city’s influential and culturati meet at Jio World Centre, BKC, for the arangetram or ‘ascent to the stage’ of Radhika Merchant, Anant Ambani’s bride to be. Anant is Nita and Mukesh Ambani’s younger son. The guests turned up in their traditional best, personally welcomed by the Ambanis.

Trained under the tutelage of her guru, Ms Bhavana Thakar, Merchant has trained in the classical dance form of Bharatanatyam for eight years. This solo performance  marks her entry into the classical art world, characterised by guru-shishya parampara.  Now, there is something common between mother-in-law and future daughter-in-law. Nita Ambani is a trained Bharatanatyam dancer, too.
