The 23-year-old Ambani, the daughter of Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani, is a director at Reliance Jio Infocomm and Reliance Retail Ventures.
One of three children of India’s richest person and chairman of the US$75 billion in revenue Reliance Industries, she was named to the telecom and retail units’ boards in October.
