Glitz and Glamour Descend on Mumbai for Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s Grand Wedding

The glitz and glamour of the entertainment world have descended upon Mumbai as Priyanka Chopra Jonas and her husband, singer Nick Jonas, arrived in the city on Thursday evening for the highly anticipated wedding ceremony of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant. The couple, who reside in Los Angeles, were seen at the Mumbai airport, beaming as they posed for photographers. Their arrival marks the beginning of what promises to be a grand celebration garnering international attention. The wedding is set to take place on July 12, with an illustrious guest list that includes prominent businessmen, politicians, and actors from around the globe.

Priyanka Chopra, who has maintained close ties with the Ambani family, has previously participated in their extravagant events, including their Holi celebrations and the grand opening of the Jio World Convention Centre last year. She is expected to take part in the grand wedding festivities that commence on July 12 and will continue until July 15, indicating her significant presence at this monumental event.

Renowned for their ability to draw in a star-studded crowd, the Ambanis are sparing no effort for this wedding. Reality television icons Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian are among the VIP guests scheduled to attend. The list doesn’t stop there; the wedding will also bring together high-profile international figures such as former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, and former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Additionally, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to make an appearance, further highlighting the event’s importance.

The sheer calibre of guests attending the wedding comes as no surprise considering the Ambani family’s history of hosting grandiose events. Isha Ambani Piramal’s wedding previously featured a performance by Beyoncé, and the recent pre-wedding festivities for Anant and Radhika were graced by international stars such as Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Justin Bieber. Thus, the Kardashians and other world leaders feel right at home in the glittering milieu curated by the Ambanis.

In preparation for the grand wedding, a special puja was organised on Wednesday.
