Many people would think that being born in the family of one of the wealthiest people in the world means being born with a silver spoon. But this was not the case with the children of Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani. Many times this question comes to the mind of people when Isha, Akash and Anant Ambani were children; how much money did they get as pocket money? You will be surprised to know that he used to get only five rupees as pocket money during school days.
Despite being the wealthiest family in the country, the Ambanis have raised their children like a middle-class family. Nita Ambani never wanted her children ever to get special facilities. During an interview in 2011, Nita Ambani disclosed the pocket money given to her children.
Mukesh Ambani Kids Pocket Money
Nita Ambani said, “When my children were young, I gave them 5 rupees every Friday to spend in the school canteen. One day my youngest son Anant came to my bedroom and asked me for Rs 10.
Neeta also revealed that her children’s schoolmates used to make fun of her. Neeta further said, “When I asked him why do you want 10 rupees? So he said that when he showed 5 rupees coin to his friends in school, they used to laugh at him and say, ‘You are Ambani or beggar’. Nita Ambani and Mukesh Ambani laughed after hearing this from their son.
Before marrying Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani aspired to become a teacher. However, after marriage, he took over the responsibility of the family. Nita Ambani also talked about her upbringing. He said that his mother was significantly displaced.
Neeta said, “My mother was a displaced lady, and we were hardly allowed to go out only four times a year and no pocket money was given. Not to mention my curfew, which was midnight.”
