Lighting Up London
The power-packed event is an annual tradition, when the billionaire brothers throw open the doors of their mansion, celebrating the festival of lights with the UK elite.
Mukesh and Nita Ambani, Boris Johnson - the-then UK Foreign Secretary of the UK, have been among guests at the earlier editions of their Diwali bash.
This year, too, saw some of the biggest names in business celebrate with the Hinduja family, last week.

Lit up for the occasion, the facade of the mansion featured a giant ‘Happy Diwali’ light display, along with laser projections of fireworks.
And as is tradition, guests were served a spread of vegetarian dishes. There were naan bombs, matar kachoris, dhokla and hara bhara kebabs as hors d’œuvres, followed by Persian mains like kashk-e-bademjan and baghali polow.
