Ambani brothers Mukesh and Anil on Tuesday gave their running feud a break as they joined a harmony feast on their mother Kokilaben’s 75th birthday celebrations.
Mukesh, his wife and children and Anil’s family joined the celebrations at Sea-Wind, the Ambani family residence. Their two sisters and brothers-in-law and children too were present.
The family get-together also triggered speculation that this could lead to a rapprochement between Mukesh and Anil, who went their separate way in 2005.
The day started with prayers to god and would end with a vegetarian feast for the about 200 people that includes extended family and friends.
Close friend and banker K V Kamath could not take part in the celebrations as he was away in London but friends from various walks of life including from political circles were among those present.
The family was tight-lipped about the get-together.
There have been reports now and then about a possible reunion between the Ambanis ever since they shook hands at an industrialists’ meet convened by Opposition Leader L K Advani at his residence in the national capital late last year.
The family reunion at Sea-Wind is the third time the siblings have come face-to-face in as many months.
It was in Sea-Wind that Kokilaben had hammered a truce deal between Mukesh and Anil in June 2005, after they took their ownership issues to the public domain.
