Radhika and Anant had a traditional Roka ceremony on December 30 at the Shrinathji Temple in Nathdwara, Rajasthan. Later, Mukesh Ambani threw the couple a lavish party at his Mumbai residence Antilia where many B-town celebrities like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Janhvi Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh were present. The celebrity lineup also included Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Ayan Mukerji, Zaheer Khan, and Sagarika Ghatge.
Radhika is the daughter of Viren Merchant, the CEO of Encore Healthcare. She hails from Kutch, Gujarat. She has trained in Bharatnatyam for eight years and is the disciple of Guru Bhavana Thakar of Shree Nibha Arts. In June 2022, Radhika made headlines after the Ambani family hosted a grand Arangetram ceremony at Jio World Centre. ‘Arangetram’ is a Tamil word which means ascending the stage by a dancer on the completion of formal training. It is the debut on-stage performance of a student of Indian classical dance and music following years of training.
