When it comes to the weddings of the Ambani children – Isha Ambani late last year and Akash Ambani now – the best of the best are on the list to perform. If Isha’s sangeet had the queen herself, Beyonce, performing, the son of Mukesh and Nita Ambani, Akash, had Coldplay and Chainsmokers performing at his pre-wedding bash in St Moritz, Switzerland.
New videos have emerged from the town famous for its skiing where Coldplay and Chjainsmokers are seen performing as India’s who’s who is in attendance. As Chris Martin and Chainsmokers performed, the bride and groom were seen dancing together.
In a video shared by actor Aadar Jain on Instagram, Martin is seen singing one of Coldplay’s hit song, Sky Full of Stars. Another video features American DJ and production duo The Chainsmokers crooning Paris as Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, were seen grooving to the number.
The Bollywood contingent consists of SRK, Aamir, Ranbir, Alia, Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Navya Naveli Nanda, Karisma Kapoor, Vidya Balan and Jacqueline Fernandez, among others. Sachin Tendulkar, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh are among the cricketers who are a part of the festivities.
According to a local Swiss website, over 850 invited guests are a part of the winter wonderland-themed event that has a ferris wheel, merry-go-round and ice field. Around 200 security people have been employed too.
After the pre-wedding festivities, Akash and Shloka will marry on March 9 at Mumbai’s Jio World Centre. A party will be hosted at the same venue on March 10, followed by a reception on March 11.
Akash got engaged to Shloka last year in March. They both studied together in Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Mumbai.
Shloka Mehta is the daughter of diamond magnate Russell Mehta and director of Rosy Blue Foundation and the co-founder of ConnectFor, an organisation that matches volunteers with NGOs that need them. Akash currently heads strategy at Jio, Reliance Industry’s 4G service provider.
