Who Is Priti Adani? Gautam Adani's Dentist-Turned-Billionaire Wife, Who Has Rs 8,327 Crore Net Worth

Priti Adani is one of the most famous billionaire wives in India. She is the wife of Gautam Adani, India's second richest person. Time and again, we have seen people compare her with Nita Ambani, Mukesh Ambani's wife. On the one hand, Nita Ambani has a taste for luxury and fashion, while on the other, Priti prefers a humble life with an extreme focus on philanthropy. It's fair to say that Priti Adani remains in the shadows, while most of the headlines belong to her husband, Gautam Adani, courtesy of the fact that he is the 20th richest person in the world.

For the uninitiated, the billionaire business tycoon, Gautam Adani has an estimated net worth of Rs. 6,75,000 crore. Priti Adani broke the headlines back in March 2024, when they attended Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani's son, Anant Ambani's pre-wedding celebration at Jamnagar. It was one of the rare moments when we spotted Gautam Adani and Priti Adani together, which created a stir on the internet. The couple hailed for their simplicity and received a thumbs-up from the netizens.
