I think it’s about time we added Internet to the list of basic human needs like food, clothing, shelter, healthcare and education. It’s really become that important. In India, with the launch of Reliance Jio, the number of Internet users spiked tremendously. You’d see people walking around carrying two phones (one with Jio) or use the dongle to avail the cheap Internet offers from the telecom operator. Safe to say, Jio internet meant a huge deal to a lot of peeps.
Cut to #DeepVeer’s Mumbai reception for the stars, where the who’s who of Bollywood and high society descended to greet the couple. Naturally, the Ambanis were there too.

The jetsetting family managed to be in Jodhpur for #NickYanka’s wedding festivities, and then back to the Bay for #DeepVeer’s reception! Paps had the perfect photo op with Nita and Mukesh Ambani, Isha Ambani, Akash Ambani, Shloka Mehta, Anant Ambani and girlfriend Radhika Merchant, in one frame.
But then, something rather hilarious happened. In one of the paparazzi videos of the Ambani fam posing, one of the photographers can be heard complaining about Jio network to Mukesh Ambani!
That’s one consumer complaint that escalated quickly!
“Sir, Jio chal nahi raha hai!”
Media photographers are known to say the most amusing things to celebs during such photo ops! Remember when the kept calling Deepika ‘bhabhiji‘ during the reception, and Ranveer couldn’t stop laughing?
Not quite sure if the complaint fell on Mukesh Ambani’s ears because he didn’t show any reaction to it. But if the quality of the network improves suddenly, we’ll know who to thank!
There’s this one dialogue in the movie Oh My God, where Paresh Rawal’s character makes an analogy to explain why he is asking God’s minions, the godmen, to pay up for his shop that was destroyed by their boss’ act (earthquake). He says, “If there’s no electricity at your home, you’re going to complain to the Reliance office, and not go straight to Anil Ambani with your problem!
But this photographer just cancelled all the middle agencies and went straight up to the chairman with his complaint! Carpe Diem, my friend!
