The two-month long IPL 2020 has finally come to an end on 10 November. Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals by 5 wickets and emerged as the IPL 2020 winner. With this win, Mumbai has become the first team to win the IPL five times.
No wonder, MI players celebrated the triumph in grand style. They were seen in groups giving interviews and posting pictures with the trophy. During the celebration, a particularly hilarious incident took place involving MI owner Nita Ambani.
Nita and Mukesh Ambani are exceptionally spiritual and believe stringently in religious traditions. In the final match of IPL 2020, where Mumbai Indians were playing against Delhi Capitals, a video went viral where Nita Ambani’s mother was spotted chanting praying for the ultimate win.
While Mumbai Indians is a strategic team, Nita Ambani did not want to leave any stone unturned for the big win. She is often spotted chanting her special mantra during the match with great belief, standing strong for her team. But this time her mother was seen chanting Mantra for Mumbai Indians’ IPL success and her mantra worked really well.
As soon as Mumbai Indians won the final match, Nita Mukesh Ambani jumped with joy like a child. Nita Ambani was seen wishing all Mumbai players on the ground. She was seen congratulating all Mumbai Indians’ players on the ground. At the same time, Quinton de Kock and Nathan Coulter-Nile were giving an interview to commentator Simon Doull.
Not realising this, Ms Ambani came into the picture congratulating the two players. She could be seen in the video saying “Quinton!!…Congratulations.,” shaking de Kock’s hands after the big win. She said: “Quinton!!! Oh, are you giving an interview?” and then walked away.
Here is the video:
The powerful woman is the chairperson and founder of the Reliance Foundation, Dhirubhai Ambani International School. She is also a non-executive director of Reliance Industries.
Reliance Industries chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani’s wife is also an art collector and owner of the most-successful Indian Premier League cricket team Mumbai Indians.
In the year 2016, Nita was featured as ‘the fifty high and mighty Indians’ list by India Today. She was also starred as ‘the most influential women business leaders in Asia’ list by Forbes.
Nita Ambani, just like Mukesh Ambani is a down to earth person. A perfect example for this is that the maids in her home don’t call her “madam or Mrs Ambani”, they call her ‘Bhabhi’.
