World’s 4th richest man Mukesh Ambani is purely vegetarian, eats very simple food

For the 12th straight year, Reliance Industries’ chairman Mukesh Ambani is the richest Indian billionaire. No one in this country has come close to his net worth. It’s because of an epic success of his telecom company Reliance Jio, he is enjoying a staggering wealth.

Despite being the fourth-richest man in the world, Mukesh Ambani is also one of the most humble and simplest persons one would come across. His wife Nita Ambani said that she liked Mukesh’s simplicity and humility during the time of their courtship. Due to Mukesh’s busy schedule, the couple could only go out for one hour at night and just wander around the streets of Mumbai. Instead of taking his lady love to fancy restaurants and bars, Mukesh Ambani preferred having vada pav with Nita Ambani from the roadside cafes. He would even travel on public transport with her.

This says a lot about the billionaire’s personality who has been an equal partner with his father in establishing one of the biggest business empires in India.

He is a hardcore vegetarian and has even followed the code when he lives alone in the USA during the 1970s when he was studying at Stanford. Although Mukesh Ambani eats eggs, he avoids the meat of any sort.

Mukesh has never consumed alcohol in his life. He is also a pure vegetarian by food habits. His favorite foods are chapati, rice and dal. He does not mind eating anywhere even from a roadside stall as long as he gets access to tasty food.
