On early Sunday morning, dressed in all their finery, a bevy of Indian film stars descended on the stage, set up at a residential township situated close to RIL’s petroleum refinery near Jamnagar city to celebrate the upcoming wedding.

Talking about the relevance of art and culture, Reliance Foundation founder and chairperson Nita Ambani said: “Throughout my life I have been inspired by arts and culture. It has deeply moved me and I am very passionate about it"

She also said: “When it came to my youngest son Anant's wedding with Radhika, I had two important wishes - first, I wanted to celebrate our roots...Jamnagar holds special place in our hearts and has a profound significance. Gujarat is where we come from, it's where Mukesh and his father built the refinery and I started my career by converting this arid and desert like area into a lush green township and a vibrant community."
