In 2019, Radhika Merchant and Anant Ambani got engaged, making the former an integral part of the Ambani family. Since then, she has been spotted at various family functions and events.
Reportedly, she also danced at Isha Ambani’s sangeet ceremony. Radhika is the CEO of Encore Healthcare and is known to live a simple life. Let’s see the proof of how close Radhika Merchant is to the members of the Ambani family.

An invitation for Radhika Merchant’s ‘Arangetram’ is going viral on social media. A fan page of Isha Ambani Parimal took to Instagram and shared the card. The event will happen on June 5.
The card read, “Nita & Mukesh Ambani and Shaila & Viren Merchant are delighted to invite you for the Arangetram of Radhika Merchant, disciple of Guru Bhavana Thakar of Shree Nibha Arts.”
The event will commence on Sunday at 6.00 P.M. at The Grand Theatre in Jio World Centre, Bandra Kurla Complex. Under ‘Sharing The Joy’, the card was named - Anant, Anjali-Aman, Isha-Anand and Shloka-Akash.
Looks like the Ambanis have officially confirmed that they are going to be welcoming their second daughter-in-law. While there is nothing official about the wedding, we can’t keep calm after knowing about this warm gesture by the Ambanis.
Radhika Danced At Isha Ambani’s Wedding
According to the videos that went viral on social media, we are sure that Radhika Merchant was one of the bridesmaids at soon-to-be sister-in-law Isha Ambani’s wedding.
Radhika performed with Isha and Shloka at the sangeet ceremony. She performed a duet with her fiancé Anant Ambani and was also one of the dancers in a group performance by the Ambanis. She was also present during the celebration of Mukesh Ambani's birthday.
What Is Arangetram?
Arangetram is a Tamil word for an on-stage debut performance of a student who has learnt an Indian classical dance form. After getting trained for years, it is the first performance of the disciple. In laymen's terms, we can call it a graduation ceremony.
The guru presents her disciple to the world and showcases her hard work and talent. The ceremony traces back its roots to the devadasi traditions. It is famous in Kuchipudi, Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Mohiniattam, Kathakali and Manipuri dance forms.

Nita Ambani And Radhika Merchant Are Classical Dancers
Another reason why Nita Ambani is going all out promoting her would-be daughter-in-law Radhika Merchant is because she is a trained Bharatanatyam dancer. In one of the old interviews with the media, Nita Ambani revealed that she has been dancing since she was a child.
Radhika Merchant is also a Bharatanatyam dancer. Her Arangetram ceremony will formally introduce her as an Indian classical dancer. We hope to see Nita Ambani and Radhika Merchant delivering a mesmerising performance one day.
