A slew of high-profile international guests were present at the wedding ceremony of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta that took place at a hotel in Mumbai on Saturday. The dinner was hosted at the Jio World Centre in the Bandra Kurla Complex. Akash Ambani is the oldest son of Mukesh Ambani, India's richest man who heads Reliance Industries. Shloka Mehta is the daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta. The couple, friends since childhood, got engaged in July last year. There is huge interest in the wedding, especially after the scale at which Mukesh Ambani's daughter Isha got married last year. Former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie Blair, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and a host of politicians and film fraternity members figured in the guest list of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta's wedding on Saturday.
Bollywood celebrities stepped out in their finest to attend Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta's wedding, which is touted to be one of the most high profile events of 2019. Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and Karan Johar, who were among the early arrivals at the Ambani-mehta wedding, shook a leg in the baaraat procession along with groom Akash and his mother Nita Ambani. Shah Rukh, who looked dapper in a white Manish Malhotra sherwaani, matched steps with Nita Ambani. Akash's sister Isha, who married Anand Piramal in December 2018, also took part in the baaraat along with her younger brother Anant and father Mukesh Ambani.
