India’s richest man got $16.4 billion richer in 2019. Meet the Ambanis, Asia’s wealthiest family, who live in a $1 billion skyscraper and mingle with royals and Bollywood stars.

The richest family in Asia is an Indian family that made headlines in 2018 for throwing one of the most lavish wedding celebrations in recent memory, which included a private Beyoncé concert and celebrity guests including Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, Hillary Clinton, and Arianna Huffington.

The Ambani family is behind the oil-to-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries. The company’s chairman and largest shareholder is Mukesh Ambani, the richest man in Asia, who is worth an estimated $60.7 billion, according to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index.

That makes him the 12th-richest person in the world, according to Bloomberg, while Forbes pegs him the 10th-richest.

Mukesh’s daughter, 28-year-old Isha Ambani, married Anand Piramal, 34, heir to a real-estate and pharmaceutical business, in December 2018 at the Ambani family home in Mumbai, a 27-story skyscraper that cost an estimated $1 billion to build.

Here’s a look at the Ambani family’s fortune, relationships, friends, and lavish lifestyles.
