It concluded with, “The Baraat will enter the wedding Hall within the Jio World Centre for the various ceremonies including Pokhwanu, Jaimala, Saptapadi, Kanyadaan etc. The guests will be treated to various delicacies from across the world as part of the wedding dinner. The wedding celebrations will continue on 10th and 11th March with lovely receptions and exquisite performances lined up. A key highlight of the receptions will be unheard of musical fountain cum dance show which integrates the mesmerising and colourful movements of the water fountain to a spectacular dance performance on stage and an aerial dance act right above the stage and the water fountain! In many ways, signifying the lyrical symmetry between water, earth and sky.”
Do you know, Akash Ambani had given up his wedding dates for Isha Ambani? Yes, in an interview with Vogue magazine, the millionaire heiress had shared, “Akash has the largest heart ever. He changed his wedding dates for me. He got engaged to Shloka before Anand and me, but he was like, “I’ll get married afterwards, you take my wedding dates.” He’s like one of the most—I don’t think there’s a word for it in English—“dayalu” humans in this world. He’s empathetic, gracious and gentle, just like Shloka."
This is just so sweet, right? Akash and Shkola, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
