It was a power-packed guest-list that saw Reliance heiress Isha Ambani and Piramal scion, Anand, tie the knot in a traditional ceremony at the former's Altamount Road residence, 'Antilia', on Wednesday.

The daughter of Asia's richest man, Mukesh Ambani, was clad in a 16-panelled ghagra in 2 shades of off-white by designer-duo Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla as she took her vows.

For the wedding ceremony, legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar recorded a rendition of the Gayatri Mantra, a Ganesh stuti, along with a special message for the newlyweds in her own voice.

The recording was played during the wedding rituals that was conducted as per Gujarati traditions and Hindu Vedic rituals.

The 89-year-old singer has recorded a rendition in her own voice after several years.


Before playing the recording, superstar Amitabh Bachchan gave an introduction and explained the significance of the rendition. Parents of the bride, Mukesh and Nita Ambani, got teary-eyed during the ceremony.

The 27-year-old walked to the mandap under a chaadar carried by brothers, Akash and Anant, and holding the hands of her to-be sisters-in-law Shloka Mehta and Radhika Merchant.

Earlier, a video that had gone viral on social media showed family and friends playfully picking up the bride and groom in the air during the varmala, as Nita and Mukesh Ambani looked on.


The wedding was a star-studded affair with the who's who of the business, political, entertainment and sports world making an appearance. The grand ceremony was preceded by an extravagant weekend in Udaipur, that saw a private concert by Beyoncé, apart from the sangeet, Maha Aarti and Anna Seva.
