Akash Ambani, the eldest son of the Indian business tycoon Mukesh Ambani, got engaged with diamantaire Russell Mehta's daughter Shloka Mehta at a private ceremony in Goa, March 24.

The engagement pictures started making rounds on social media Saturday evening after the event took place.  

According to various reports, Akash proposed Shloka at sunset during a get-together. The celebratory event was later joined in by Mukesh, his wife Nita Ambani, and children, Anant and Isha. Shloka's family members were also present at the event, Economic Times reported.

"Mukesh and I have given a very strong foundation to our kids and even larger wings to fly – they have the freedom to take decisions for themselves and of course, choose whom they would want to spend the rest of their lives with. Marrying the one you love is gratifying and heart-warming." Nita Ambani was quoted by the ET as saying."
