NEW DELHI: The media is abuzz with reports of billionaire Mukesh Ambani's son Akash getting hitched with Shloka Mehta, daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta by the end of 2018.
If sources are to be believed, the news of their engagement can break anytime soon.

The Ambani and Mehta families have known each other for a very long time.
Emails and reminders sent to a spokesperson of Ambani family and his company Reliance Industries by PTI remained unanswered. However, the news agency quoted a source close to the family as saying, "No dates of either the wedding or engagement of Akash Ambani have been finalised".
"As and when any good news is to be shared, the family will be delighted to share with everyone," the source added.
Emails sent by PTI to Rosy Blue spokesperson too remain unanswered.
