Nita Ambani took one more definitive step in her journey
from being the wife of the richest man in India, Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani, to being his business partner, in late 2011, when she was nominated to the board of EIH Ltd, the company that runs the Oberoi and Trident hotel chains. She also heads a clutch of other initiatives, including the Reliance Foundation, the Dhirubhai Ambani International School and the Mumbai Indians IPL team.
She is chairperson as well of IMG-Reliance, the sports management company which shook up the Indian football scene in early September by proposing an IPL-style football league. Nita Ambani also debuted on the ramp for a cause - adding lustre to her role of being the perfect foil to Mukesh Ambani.
