Anant Ambani heaps praise on Radhika Merchant

She is the person of my dreams. Since childhood, I had thought that I would never get married because I was always devoted to taking care of animals. But when I met Radhika, I saw her sharing the same values as me. She has this sense of giving and nurturing towards animals," Anant Ambani told India Today.

He then added, "I am lucky (to have her) for sure."
