Mumbai, May 10: Akash Ambani, the younger brother of Isha Ambani, delivered an emotional speech at a ceremony held on the engagement of his sister with Anand Piramal, the son of realty sector honcho Ajay Piramal.
Akash's speech left Isha, brother Anant and other relatives teary-eyed. The video, shared on instagram, is reproduced by LatestLY below:
Isha, 26, was proposed by 25-year-old Anand during a family holiday they were spending at Mahabaleshwar. The two of them knew each other for since childhood.
Anand is currently the executive director in the $4 billion conglomerate Piramal Enterprises. A graduate from Harvard, he credits Isha's father Mukesh Ambani for his entrepreneurial career.
After completing his studies, Anand was contemplating to choose either banking or consulting as his career. However, he was recommended by Ambani to reconsider.
"He told me, ‘Being a consultant is like watching cricket or commentating about cricket, while being an entrepreneur is like playing cricket. You can’t learn how to play cricket by commentating. If you want to do something, be an entrepreneur in the long term and start now," Anand had narrated in a recent interview.
