It’s not every day that the who’s who of tinsel town descends to mesmerize us. But when they do, in all their ethnic fineries, we remain glued to their sartorial shenanigans. The Ambanis threw a lavish bash to commemorate the engagement of their son Akash Ambani to fiancée Shloka Mehta. The eldest son of Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani got engaged to Shloka earlier in Goa this year. The venue of this glittery affair was their 27-storey south Mumbai residence – Antilia. The equally snazzy invite that came earlier this month was replete with a minute-long montage video of the couple, set to a popular Bollywood song, sent on behalf of Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani and Akash Ambani’s siblings Isha Ambani and Anant Ambani. The Bollywood glitterati who made their fashionable presence felt at the Akash Ambani-Shloka Mehta engagement bash included the likes of Shah Rukh Khan with wife Gauri Khan, Priyanka Chopra with beau Nick Jonas, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor and Karan Johar.
