Reliance has investments in the CNBC-TV18 group. It is also hiring journalists and other media professionals to generate content for its 4G telecom venture, Reliance Jio Infocomm, where Isha’s twin brother Akash, an alumnus of Brown University, is currently earning his spurs.
Sources close to the developments added that Akash and Isha are being groomed the same way Dhirubhai Ambani groomed his sons Mukesh and Anil. Mukesh had joined Reliance when he was 24 and helped set up the world’s largest petrochemical complex at Patalganga. The youngest of the three Ambani children, Anant, who is currently pursuing higher studies at Brown University, will be the next in line to join daddy Ambani’s business. Anant, who is a keen sport enthusiast, is often seen next to his mother Nita Ambani at IPL matches featuring the Reliance-owned Mumbai Indians.
