Indian business tycoon, Mukesh Ambani and his entrepreneur-wife, Nita Ambani need no introduction as everyone is aware of their giant success and wealth. The much-in-love couple lives with their family in the world's second most expensive private residential property, Antilia. With their kids, Anant Ambani, Akash Ambani and Isha Ambani, taking forward the gigantic legacy of their family, the Ambanis will undoubtedly continue to rule the nation.
However, not everyone is aware of the fact that the Ambani family are nothing but a close-knitted clan that still believes in being humble and leading a family with strong core values. So today, without further ado, let's talk about the Ambani family's hidden secrets that tell us everything about their fundamental values and ethics as a family!
Business tycoon, Mukesh Ambani is madly in love with his entrepreneur-wife, Nita Ambani. Even after so many years of their happy married life, the doting husband never misses a chance to woo his wife. Mukesh and Nita had got married in 1985. Since then, the couple has seen ups and downs in their married life, but despite all the changes and transitions in their lives, one thing that still remains the same is Mukesh and Nita's love and respect for each other.
Once in an interview with Femina, the ever-so-gorgeous, Nita Ambani had opened up about her happy married life with her husband, Mukesh Ambani. Nita had also insisted that she and her husband, Mukesh, still goes on random dinner dates and also take some time for themselves in each other's company all alone. Talking about the same, she had said:
"We are still very much in love with each other. Our plans are made at the spur of the moment – he will say late in the night, 'Let's go for a cup of coffee,' and we go to Sea Lounge or if it's a day plan we head to Swati Snacks for a quick bhel or dahi batata puri."
The businesswoman had admitted that despite being married to each other for such a long time, not even for once did their relationship lack the spark they had back in the day when they were newbie lovers.
One of the Ambani family's biggest strengths and the reason they've been ruling the global corporate sector for decades is the very foundation they give to their family's youngsters. The strict core values of the family are the prime factors behind their success as a family. A glimpse of which we had witnessed when once, in an interview with iDiva, Nita Ambani had talked about how she and her husband, Mukesh Ambani had taught their kids, Anant Ambani, Akash Ambani and Isha Ambani the importance of money right from the beginning of their childhood.
The doting mother, Nita Ambani, had surprisingly revealed that she used to give 5 rupees to each one of her kids every Friday. Yes! You read it right, just Rs. 5 despite being one of the richest families in India. Reflecting on the same, Nita had explained that she had always wanted her kids to be grounded and respect every single penny that they hold in their respective hands. However, she had also shared a hilarious incident when some of the boys in Anant's school had called him 'bhikari'. She had said:
"When my kids were still young, I'd give them Rs 5 each every Friday to spend in the school canteen. One day, my youngest, Anant, came running into my bedroom and demanded he be given Rs 10 instead. When I questioned him, he said his pals in school laughed whenever they saw him take out a five-rupee coin saying, 'Ambani hai ya bhikari!' Mukesh and I couldn't help but crack up. Wealth and power don't go together. Power cannot be brokered. To me, power is responsibility. And I derive it from my family, my work, my passion and my very middle-class values."
Thus, despite their enormous wealth and power, Nita Ambani and Mukesh Ambani had always taught their kids to respect the things they had. No wonder the next generation of the Ambani clan, Prithvi Akash Ambani, will soon be getting these same lessons from his parents, Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta Ambani, about wealth and power.
According to multiple reports and speculations, Isha Ambani reportedly has an account on Instagram that she used personally for keeping an eye on the things happening across the world, just like all of us. However, the bad news is that Isha has a private account, and she uses it just for fun.
In an interview with Vogue, Isha had opened up about her presence on social media and had shared the reason behind keeping her Instagram handle private. She had said:
"No need to have a public account. I'm not an influencer and it's not something that I want to be. I don't want to be known for the number of followers I have. I use social media for fun."
The head of the Ambani family, Kokilaben Ambani is a pure vegetarian and her son, Mukesh Ambani is in his mother's footsteps and is very strict about his vegetarian diet. According to reports, Mukesh's kids, Akash Ambani and Anant Ambani, Isha Ambani, and his wife, Nita Ambani are also vegetarian. However, Nita and Anant are the two people in the entire family, who are on a low carb and high protein diet. Not only this, but Nita also reportedly drinks beetroot juice once a day. The entire Ambani clan is very specific about their diet and health.
There's a thing common in each and every member of the family clan that often makes it called a family tradition, and that thing is the willingness to spend time with their loved ones in their homes over partying in fancy clubs or lounges. Other than family gatherings, there's a strict rule in the Ambani family that is to have dinner together, no matter wherever they are, due to their professional commitments. Therefore, every family member takes out time for the family dinner. In a throwback interview with a leading news portal, Nita Ambani had talked about the same and had said:
"I try not to carry work back home or discuss it at the dinner table as one meal a day with the family is important."
All these things rightly hint towards one common fact that despite being one of the wealthiest families in the world, Ambanis never forget their roots and always believe in humility and prioritising family above everything else.
