“I Cried at my Vidaai only due to peer pressure” – Says Isha Ambani as she opens up about Life After Marriage!
Mukesh and Nita Ambani’s daughter Isha Ambani’s wedding to Anand Piramal was literally what a royal wedding should have looked like and more! Housed with several Bollywood celebrities from the Bachchan family to Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan, Isha Ambani’s engagement, sangeet and reception made headlines all over the world and made people sit up and take notice.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Isha Ambani (now) Piramal speaks about her life after marriage, what actually went inside the big fat Ambani wedding and to what extent was she involved. Scroll down to know what she said:
On being asked about the wedding:
She said, “The wedding went off beautifully. Like any other bride, I had my share of bridal jitters but getting married at home made it very special and I had the time of my life celebrating my most memorable moments with all the people I love.”
Was she a bridezilla?
Isha replied : “During the wedding my mom was CEO and I was chairperson. She and dad did all the hard work. Thankfully, we ended up liking the same things, so that made it a breeze. I didn’t go to a single wedding meeting. I was never someone who dreamt of how my wedding would be, yet it was wonderful in more ways than I can imagine. It was a very emotional affair for everyone in my family. I was emotional too but everyone around me would cry all the time. I only cried at my bidaai because I felt some peer pressure as everyone else was crying, especially my parents.”
On being asked about the singular reason that makes her husband a great life partner:
She said, “I can’t stop at one! (laughs). I love his amazing sense of humour and his spirituality.”
How different are they both as a couple?
Isha replies, “He hates attending events, I enjoy them. I really enjoyed our wedding, but it was not exactly his idea of fun (laughs). He’s more spiritual than I am. But we are also very similar. We are both very family-oriented, and we both love food. I remember in one of the speeches that my father gave at my wedding, he listed ten reasons why he liked Anand. It was hilarious, and dad concluded by saying that these are probably the same ten things that he would also use to describe himself. And it’s true; in many ways Anand reminds me of my father.”
On being asked about how difficult is it to maintain the work life balance?
Isha said, “Last night, we had dinner, and then from 11pm to 3am Anand had a meeting in his office. So, I don’t think his life has changed, and neither has mine. At this stage, work is a priority for both of us. And luckily, our parents understand that. Fortunately, the family I was born into and the family I married into have the same work ethic—every member of both families knows the importance of work.”
Well well, here’s wishing this power couple a lifetime of togetherness and may they be setting couple goals all they way!
