28-year-old Anant Ambani is marrying Radhika Merchant, the daughter of industrialist Viren Merchant, who owns a large pharmaceutical company.

Although the wedding is planned for July 12th in Mumbai, the three-day pre-wedding celebrations took place in early March.

Not only relatives and friends of the couple attended the event, but also famous personalities and influential businessmen from around the world.

Among the celebrity guests were Hillary Clinton, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg, who were also invited to the groom's sister's wedding in 2018. In total, over 1000 guests were announced.

Each guest was handed a nine-page booklet with detailed instructions regarding the dress code.

All invitees were required to have not only stylish attire but also comfortable for active leisure and strolls.

For their convenience, a laundry service was provided, and hundreds of stylists, makeup artists, and experts in traditional Indian attire developed their looks.

According to anonymous sources, guests were offered 75 types of breakfast, 225 options for lunch, and 275 options for dinner.

For those who enjoy late-night snacks, 85 types of appetizers were prepared from midnight until 4 am. It was promised that no dish on the menu would be repeated over the three days.

As part of the pre-wedding celebrations, singer Rihanna performed for the guests. Rumor has it that her fee was $7 million. This is her first performance after giving birth to her second child.

One of the days of the celebration is planned to host a massive event called Tusk Trail.

Guests will be surrounded by wonders of nature all day, with 200 elephants, 300 big cats, and 120 reptiles awaiting them.

Furthermore, an excursion to the Vantara Animal Rescue Center is organized for the attendees. The center, covering an area of 263 hectares, is home to over 2000 animals.

This center belongs to Anant Ambani, the younger son of Mukesh Ambani, a businessman who ranks ninth on the Forbes billionaires list.

Mukesh owns Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), which specializes in oil and gas extraction, with an annual turnover of $104 billion. Mukesh's wealth is estimated at $111 billion.
