It wouldn't be wrong to say that Isha Ambani's wedding with Anand Piramal and Akash Ambani's wedding with Shloka Mehta were probably the two biggest weddings of the decade. Apart from the grandeur, magnanimity, décor and lavish menu, the fact that Beyonce and Coldplay performed at their wedding, made it an even bigger event.
There were rumours of Nita Ambani wanting to gift something unique and special to Shloka and thus opted for one of the rarest and expensive diamond sets. It is said that the cut and design of the diamonds in this set is niche and cannot be copied.
As per reports, sister-in-law, Isha Ambani alongwith her husband, Anand Piramal, gifted a palatial bungalow to Shloka Mehta as a wedding present. Shloka and Akash were supposed to get married before Isha and Anand Piramal, but, Akash gave up his wedding dates for his darling sister Isha. Talking about Akash, Isha had said in an interview with Vogue, "Akash has the largest heart ever. He changed his wedding dates for me. He got engaged to Shloka before Anand and me, but he was like, "I'll get married afterwards, you take my wedding dates." He's like one of the most—I don't think there's a word for it in English—"dayalu" humans in this world. He's empathetic, gracious and gentle, just like Shloka."
Akash - Shloka's wedding and Isha - Anand's wedding brought many Bollywood exes face-to-face. While Karisma Kapoor, who was once engaged to Abhishek Bachchan, danced with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan; Deepika Padukone danced with Alia and Ranbir like there was no tomorrow. Shah Rukh Khan and his alleged ex- Priyanka Chopra too greeted each other at the event.
The entire Ambani clan looked their royal and traditional best at both the weddings. Both Akash and Isha's wedding continue to remain some of the biggest and most talked about weddings in the country ever.
