The guests will be treated to various delicacies from across the world as part of the wedding dinner
The wedding celebrations will continue on 10th and 11th March with lovely receptions and exquisite performances lined up.
A key highlight of the receptions will be an unheard of musical fountain cum dance show which integrates the mesmerising and colourful movements of the water fountain to a spectacular dance performance on stage and an aerial dance act right above the stage and the water fountain! In many ways, signifying the lyrical symmetry between water, earth and sky.
Set on the devotional and ancient theme of Raas Lila of Lord Krishna, Radha and the Gopikas of Vrindavan, the presentation will see a collaboration of more than 150 Indian and International artistes. The performance signifies the intent of the Ambani family to pay their obesience to the almighty Krishna, singing his glory and seeking his blessings for the newly weds Akash and Shloka.
This special performance will be the highlight of Akash and Shloka’s wedding festivities on 10th March and will be held at the Dhirubhai Ambani Square, a stunning gateway to the globally benchmarked Jio World Centre at BKC, Mumbai. Nita Ambani recently held an inaugural function for nearly 2000 underprivileged children from various city based NGOs, signifying the dedication of the Square and the Musical Fountain to all Mumbaikars.
