After Isha and Akash Ambani's extravagant pre-engagement and engagement parties, the world thought that the celebrations might have come to a halt for some time and will now resume in December, when the two are said to get married to their respective partners.
But, today the Ambanis gifted themselves another reason to celebrate and hold parties. Why? Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Industries Ltd, today added another title in front of his name and that is - 'Asia's richest person'.
Reportedly, Ambani has toppled Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma to become Asia's richest person as he places Reliance Industries Ltd. to disrupt the e-commerce space in India. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Ambani's net worth was estimated to be $44.3 billion and Jack Ma's wealth was at $44 billion.
While Jack Ma reportedly lost $1.4 billion this year, Ambani has, on the other hand, added $4 billion to his fortune as Reliance “doubled its petrochemicals capacity and investors cheered the success of his disruptive telecom upstart Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd.”
Does that mean all the Jio users can pat their backs and take credit for Mukesh Ambani becoming Asia's richest person?
Well keeping the jokes aside, we guess both the Ambanis and Bollywood found another reason to party like there's no tomorrow, at Antilia.
