The source further added, “Naturally, these two chartbusters have found a place in the set that the band is putting together for their gig. They are expected to perform for almost 40 minutes with other hits like She Will Be Loved, Makes Me Wonder and One More Night on the playlist. The team of sound designers that frequently works with Maroon 5 is coming down from Canada to check on the arrangements. Maroon 5 is known to charge anywhere between $1mn and $1.5mn for private shows. It will be an expensive affair.”
Speaking about the wedding itinerary, India Today quoted a source as saying, “The Mangal Baaraat will assemble at the Trident in Mumbai at 3.30pm on Saturday. From the Trident, the baaraatis are to leave for the Jio World Centre in Bandra Kurla Complex. A high tea will be hosted for the guests at Jio World Centre at 6.30pm on March 9. Akash and Shloka's wedding ceremony will take place at 7.30pm.” Apart from this, a wedding reception would be held on March 10, 2019, for people belonging to the world of business, Bollywood, politics and cricket.
