The celebrations will start from 8 pm, witnessing aarti at around 9 pm, followed by dinner. And the dress code for the celebration is Indian festive.

Sharing a heartfelt gratitude note for Nita Ambani for hosting the event, AJSK had written, “2012: Mrs Ambani's faith in our work and her absolute championing of the book is unprecedented.

To have that sort of belief in our work, that level of encouragement and support is priceless. We are eternally grateful to her." Abu and Sandeep. This event was quite simply the most magical celebration of their creativity, packed with the powerful presence of India’s icons from Industry, Society and Cinema.”
It had further stated, “The duo’s most cherished took to the stage, dressed in sumptuous, custom ensembles. Abu and Sandeep count them as close friends. “Our work has brought us immense professional and personal joy. It has enabled us to dress the most fabulous women and men. People who have become friends and even family. We treasure them and their faith in us as artists. To have them with us on this occasion was heavenly. A deeply emotional experience.” - Abu and Sandeep. For this event the duo dressed Nita and Mukesh Ambani, Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Amrita Singh, Tabu, Gauri Khan and Sussanne Khan in their hallmark ranges.

On August 21, 2019, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla had shared an unseen picture of mother-daughter duo, Nita Ambani and Isha Ambani Piramal, in their royal avatars making heads turn in their ethnic best. The elaboration on their look could be read as “2007: Gota, a gift from Rajasthan! Gota is a woven metallic ribbon that is crafted with gold or silver wire thread and silk or cotton thread. It is made in Rajasthan and was formerly used mainly as borders and finishes and also as flowers and dots on many north Indian royal outfits. It has been a constant in Abu Sandeep's work over the years and they have kept reinventing its usage on fabric with much success. Here's Nita Ambani and Isha in Bali Gota for Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla's India Fantastique. Their ensembles have multiple borders on the ghagra and dupatta featuring beautiful floral bael motifs. Nita’s ghagra is finished with a peacock Zardozi border, while Isha’s ensemble displays the radiance of a real gold Kuran lace border. An avid aficionado of their work, Nita says - "For me, Abu and Sandeep are the epitome of Indian couture, perfecting the art of beautiful dressmaking and intricate designing. My family and I have been fortunate to have the honour to wear their designs and to share a close bond with the duo." #33YearsOfAJSK.” (Also Read: Mira Rajput Kapoor Shares An Unseen Picture Of Infant Misha Kapoor, Wishes Her Angel On 3rd Birthday)
