Daughter of Encore Healthcare CEO Viren Merchant and Shaila Merchant, Radhika Merchant has a bachelor's degree in politics and economics from New York University. She is said to have a strong relationship with Nita Ambani.
Radhika did her schooling at Mumbai's Cathedral and John Connon School, and École Mondiale World School before completing her IB Diploma from BD Somani International School.
