Linked with starlets
Before they fell out, it was Anil who would make corporate presentations and take questions from reporters, whose names he made a point of remembering.
A member of the prosperous Gujarati community, Anil Ambani often speaks in the regional language to shareholders and business associates.
He is a vegetarian, does not drink or smoke, and can often be seen among the early morning runners in Mumbai.
Once a fixture of Mumbai night life, he was linked with several starlets before marrying his wife some 20 years ago, and is a close friend of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
