She has been there through a number of milestones in your life. She was the first face you saw when you opened your tiny eyes, and from encouraging you to take the training wheels off your bike to making soup for you when you were sick and then finally teaching you how to make it yourself. Throughout the wedding planning process, she has been your light of guidance. And when finally, the day of your wedding arrives, she is the happiest person on the planet. She is your mother!

Nita Ambani has been going through the same feelings of happiness and excitement as her little baby doll, Isha Ambani is all set to get married. And her feelings were quite evident when she danced her heart out at Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s pre-wedding ceremonies in Udaipur. It looks like Nita Ambani was the first one to get on the dance stage for her performances and the last one to leave the stage. Even the B-town and Hollywood celebrities seemed nothing in comparison to her energy.
While we have seen videos of Nita Ambani dancing with her husband, Mukesh Ambani, her sons, Akash and Anant Ambani, her soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Shloka Mehta, alleged soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Radhika Merchant, the bride and groom, Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal, but what has conquered our hearts is her solo performance on Madhurashtakam, a beautiful description of Lord Krishna's activities penned 500 years ago by revered saint Vallabhacharya. Check out the videos here:
In another performance video by the Ambani clan that is getting viral on social media, Ambanis rumoured future daughter-in-law, Radhika Merchant can be seen dancing with Anant Ambani, Nita Ambani, Mukesh Ambani, Isha Ambani, Anand Piramal, Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta on Jab Tak Hai Jaan’s title track. Check out the video here:
From Shah Rukh Khan-Gauri Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh to Mukesh Ambani-Nita Ambani, Akash Ambani-Shloka Mehta amongst others made the evening a memorable one for Isha and Anand. But Isha’s younger brother, Anant Ambani stole the limelight with his super-adorable dance performance with the ‘not-so-alleged-girlfriend-anymore’, Radhika Merchant. Check out the videos here:
Before the rocking star-studded sangeet ceremony, the Ambanis and Piramals hosted a Sandhya Maha Aarti for which, a 35 feet statue of Srinathji was set up at Udaivilas hotel. Talking about the same, a source had earlier shared, “The family has requested a floral set up on the vessel holding the idol of Shrinathji. Dancers will perform on the floating stage, in keeping with Indian customs and traditions. The hosts also plan to conduct a maha aarti to seek blessings of their lord.” (Also Read: Isha Ambani's Mumbai Residence Antilia Is Decked Up For Her Big Fat Wedding With Anand Piramal)
On December 7, 2018, Ambanis and Piramals released a joint statement detailing out about the Anna Seva ceremony which could be read as, “As a mark of respect and gratitude to the city of Udaipur, and to seek their blessings for the upcoming wedding of their daughter, the family has commenced a special “Anna Seva” - taking up the auspicious task of feeding 5100 people (majority of them with special abilities) three times everyday from 7th to 10th December, to coincide with the pre-wedding functions of Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal on 8th & 9th December. Family members, including Mukesh and Nita Ambani, Ajay and Swati Piramal, Isha and Anand were present at this Anna Seva function, serving people and interacting with them. The Anna Seva functions will continue for four days, from 7th to 10th December and will be performed three times a day at the Narayan Seva Sansthan, Udaipur."
The statement could be further read as, “In addition, the pre-wedding festivities will also see the setting up of a specially curated exhibit called the Swadesh Bazaar that will showcase 108 traditional Indian Crafts and art forms from all different regions of the country for the national and international guests. Presenting the art will be master craftsmen and craftswomen themselves, who are keeping these traditional arts alive. Creating an interesting experience as also an immersion into India’s cultural heritage. Swadesh Bazaar is a unique concept to encourage the craftsmanship of traditional Indian artisans, especially for a lot of indigenous crafts that need conservation and revival and have been supported by Reliance Foundation over the years. The Foundation aims to broaden and deepen its support to the goals of Swadesh Bazaar on a bigger and more sustainable scale in future.”
And it lastly stated, “From the rich Kanjeevaram, exclusive Patola, intricate Chikankari to fine Bandhani, exhibits cover over 30 types of textiles and weaves. Depicting folktales and local legends, artists will showcase ancient painting forms like Gond, Madhubani, Phad, Warli and Thangka. Weavers, potters and sculptures from all around the country will make this a mega-celebration of art and culture. This unique exhibit has not just provided livelihoods to thousands of such artisans, but also giving an opportunity to showcase their rare works from every nook and corner of India, for people’s interest, appreciation and support.” (Also Read: Isha Ambani And Anand Piramal's Pre-Wedding Celebrations Were A Hub For Hilarious Memes)
