In a traditional ceremony at the family’s Mumbai home Antilia, Anant Ambani, the youngest son of Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani, got engaged to Radhika Merchant, the daughter of industrialist Viren Merchant.
At the grand celebration held at the Ambani residence, several Bollywood celebrities made their presence known. Old Gujarati customs like Gol Dhana and Chunari Vidhi were performed during the couple’s traditional engagement ceremony.
Gol Dhana, which means jaggery and coriander seeds, is a pre-wedding ceremony among Gujaratis. These items are distributed at the groom’s place.
The bride’s family comes to the groom’s home with gifts and sweets and then the couple exchanges ring.
The engagement event included a number of pleasant surprises, such as a little ring bearer and performances by the Ambani and Merchant families.
Along with his wife Gauri Khan and son Aryan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan came to the great celebration. The “Chak De India” actor was photographed entering the Ambani mansion while dodging the journalists and wearing traditional black attire. In contrast, Aryan was spotted posing with his mother Gauri Khan while wearing an all-black suit. In a silver lehenga, Gauri looked stunning.
Power couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone gathered all the eyeballs at the engagement ceremony. The ‘Piku’ actor looked drop-dead gorgeous in a red saree. She tied her hair into a bun.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was spotted at the ceremony along with her daughter Aaradhya and the mother-daughter duo looked beautiful in traditional attires. The ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ actor looked gorgeous in a golden and green suit. She kept her hair open and make-up heavy.
