NEW DELHI: Anant Ambani, son of billionaire Mukesh Ambani, recently found himself at the centre of a controversy after being spotted wearing what appeared to be a crocodile skin jacket worth 50,000 euros. The youngest Ambani son, renowned as an animal and the Vantara Project sanctuary in Gujarat, is receiving criticism over his hypocritical choice. The controversy erupted after a photo of him with singer Justin Bieber at a sangeet ceremony went viral where Radhika Merchant is seen wearing a Manish Malhotra saree, and he is seen wearing a red leather jacket.

This has reignited debates over the ethics of using animal products in fashion, drawing comparisons to various celebrities who have faced criticism for their choice of attire.
