Akash tied the knot with childhood friend Shloka, the daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta, on Saturday at an extravagant ceremony that saw Jio World Centre converted into a floral paradise as the who's who of the world in attendance. From Tony Blair and Ban Ki-moon to Sundar Pichai, Ratan Tata and Bollywood, it was a starry affair as the couple took their vows.

On Tuesday, the Ambanis are also organising two musical fountain shows for over 7000 members of India’s armed forces, police and their families to seek blessings for the newlyweds. The performance by 150 Indian and international artistes will be based on the theme of the Raas Lila of Lord Krishna and Radha and the Gopikas of Vrindavan.

Mukesh and Nita Ambani shook a leg at Akash's baraat, and the groom celebrated with Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and Karan Johar. Here's a look at the celebration.

The Brown alumnus proposed to Shloka in March last year, and the couple celebrated the new beginning surrounded by close family and friends in Goa. This was followed by an engagement for the couple at the Ambanis' Mumbai residence 'Antilia'.
