India’s wealthiest family, the Ambani’s, celebrated the 54th birthday of Nita Ambani on the 1st of November. Being the wife of India’s richest man and playing the role of the chairperson and founder of Reliance Foundation, Nita is reportedly India’s wealthiest woman.
Nita Ambani however had quite a modest beginning and hailed from a middle-class family in suburban Mumbai. Nita has an undergraduate degree in Commerce from Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics and had taken up a job as a teacher when she crossed paths with the Ambani family.
Having trained in Bharatnatyam for several years, Nita often travelled around the country for performance.
It was during one such show that Dhirubhai Ambani noticed Nita and wanted his older son Mukesh to marry her.
Nita at the time also worked as a school teacher and wished to continue her profession even after marriage.
