The royal wedding of Isha, the daughter of Mukesh and Nita Ambani, and Anand, the son of Ajay and Swati Piramal, is set in motion as the pre-wedding festivities have already embarked in Udaipur. Today the second pre-wedding function will take place at the City Palace.
Last night’s sangeet ceremony commenced with a Maha Arti at the venue, with the picturesque Lake Pichola in the background, wherein Nita Ambani performed a special prayer dance to their spiritual deity Srinathji. The ignition of the big fat wedding witnessed magnificent performances by the Ambani family. From Mukesh and Nita Ambani dancing on the tunes of Jab Tak Hai Jaan to Isha and Anand giving a sizzling performance on Mitwa, the sangeet ceremony was indeed a night to remember.
At Udaipur, a special ‘Swedeshi Bazar’ has been set up inside the hotel where 108 traditional Indian art forms have been put up by master craftsmen and craftswomen from different parts of the country, including Rajasthan, the source said.
Textiles of 30 types, paintings, were among other items available in the market set up for the guests.
