Isha Ambani wedding: Here’s everything that happened at Antilia

The 37-year-old performed for guests at the star-studded pre-wedding festivities of Isha Ambani, the daughter of India's richest man, and Anand Piramal, the son of another Indian billionaire, in Udaipur.

The pre-wedding festivities in Udaipur saw a larger-than-life performance by Beyonce and former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton dancing with actor Shah Rukh Khan.

They will tie the knot in Mumbai today.

"Hillary Clinton & John Kerry Dancing with Bollywood Star Shah Rukh Khan for India's richest man, Mukesh Ambani's Daughter's Wedding - Now, we know why even Trump could defeat Hillary", added professor Ashok Swain, a professor, to almost 25,000 followers.

On a related note, Shah Rukh Khan, Gauri Khan, American singer-songwriter Beyonce, Katrina Kaif also set the stage on fire with their performance.

Saudi Arabia's Oil Minister Khalid al-Falih (L) arrives in Udaipur to attend pre-wedding celebrations of Isha Ambani, daughter of the Chairman of Reliance Industries Mukesh Ambani, in the desert state of Rajasthan, India, December 8, 2018.

The celebrations began from the afternoon with the traditionally attired groom, Anand, arriving on a mare at the head of a wedding procession (baraat).

Her bill was part of the US$100 million that was estimated to have been spent in all on the wedding, which took place in Mumbai on Wednesday (Dec 12), reported Bloomberg. Mukesh Ambani, managing director of Reliance Industries, has a personal fortune of around $47bn (£37bn).

- Notable guests including Beyonce, Hilary Clinton are flown in for the wedding.

Guests including Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra and musician hubby Nick Jonas - who had their own opulent Indian wedding earlier this month - descended on the fete in private planes and luxury sedans.

Indian newspapers have been abuzz with speculation about the total cost of the wedding.

When Dhirubhai Ambani died, his sons Mukesh and Anil fought over control of the empire. Looking at the grand celebrations, it will be interesting to see what the couple wears on the big day. While the pre-wedding festivities were held in Udaipur, with names such as popstar Beyoncé, U.S. diplomat Hillary Clinton in attendance, the wedding is going to take place in Mukesh Amabani's Mumbai residence, Antilia. No more, Dalmia said.
