Ever had a bucket list? If you did and still do, I bet you ‘want to become like the Ambanis’ will surely top the list! And why wouldn’t it be? No one celebrates weddings with galore like that of festivals, like the Ambanis. From top-notch international sensations performing at their pre-wedding festivities, multiple themed-functions, decking up and having Bollywood sensations all throughout with you, this defines every Ambanis ke ghar ki shaadi in a nutshell. And this is exactly what (and maybe more), you are and will continue to virtually experience at Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s wedding.

Akash Ambani, Shloka Mehta, their familes and a troupe of some 500-odd guests had flown off to St. Mortiz, Switzerland to attend the pre-wedding festivities of the couple. Theirs was a ‘winter wonderland’ themed party and netizens were awestruck at the vast array of arrangements being made to celebrate the last few moments of the couple as bachelors. For the same, Akash and Shloka had made their ‘fairytale’ kinda entry in a white chariot. In case you missed the same, take a look at the picture here:
With their wedding hashtag, #AkuStoleTheShloe being checked out like crazy by netizens on Instagram for all the latest updates, we came across an unseen picture (and probably the best till date) of Akash and Shloka looking ethereal and all marriage-ready as they twinned in white! While Shloka was seated on a chair and her soon-to-be hubby, Akash standing right behind her, this couple looked like a pair made in heaven! Here is the picture that we are talking about:
Don’t they look amazing? For the uninitiated, Akash and Shloka will tie the knot in an opulent wedding ceremony at the Jio World Centre in Mumbai. An India Today report had stated, “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.” (Must Read: Neeti Mohan Shares Her Complete Wedding Journey On Hubby Nihaar Pandya's Birthday, Video Inside)
The couple’s sangeet ceremony will be held soon and none other than, the band who gave out one of the biggest chartbusters of the year, Girls Like You, Maroon 5 will be performing for the same. In case you missed, Chainsmokers and Coldplay had performed at the couple’s pre-wedding bash in Switzerland. A Mid-Day report quoted a source saying, “Since Shloka and Akash are both fans of Maroon 5, the family thought it fitting to have them perform for the couple at the sangeet that will be held on March 8. While Akash's favourite track is Sugar in which the band is seen gatecrashing weddings, Shloka loves Move Like Jagger.”
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.”
In an interview to an online portal, Shloka had spoken about keeping pace with her relationship inspite of their hectic schedules. She was quoted as saying, “Despite years and busy schedules, we have always found ways to stay connected. Akash is incredibly grounded, and we share a bond based on meaning and memories. We don't just get along - we also support each other's hopes and aspirations and are determined to build a sense of purpose into our lives together. We are lucky to have a love that began with being best friends and luckier still to have such supportive families”.

While Akash had revealed, “I am truly happy that our friendship has blossomed into love and Shloka and I are getting married, she is a truly special and extremely kind-hearted person”. In another interview with a leading media portal, Nita Ambani, post-Akash and Shloka’s proposal had said, “I have known Shloka since she was four and we are all delighted to welcome her to our home and our hearts”. A source close to the family had revealed, “Shloka is a very charming girl, extremely cultured and it’s difficult to say which of the two families is lucky with this upcoming marriage”.
