Isha Ambani, daughter of billionaire Mukesh Ambani, and Anand Piramal, son of Ajay Piramal who is the chairman of the Piramal Group of companies, are all set for their big wedding day tomorrow. The couple, who got engaged in Italy's Lake Como in September this year, will marry at the Ambani residence Antilia in Mumbai in a private affair. The Ambani and Piramal families have been friends for four decades and the wedding will bring India's two most influential families closer.
Ahead of the marriage ceremony, the pre-wedding festivities began on December 7 in Udaipur's Oberoi Udaivilas hotel which was a star-studded affair. From power-packed performances of American pop sensation Beyonce and Bollywood celebrities Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Karan Johar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the event turned out to be super hit. The dance videos of Isha Ambani and mother Nita Ambani also instantly went viral on social media.
