Reliance Industries scion Akash Ambani Saturday tied the knot with Shloka Mehta, daughter of diamantaire Russel Mehta, at a glittering ceremony in Mumbai.

The wedding took place at the newly constructed convention centre in the Bandra Kurla Complex. A concourse inside the 'Jio World Centre' hosted the baraat (wedding procession), which had Bollywood composers Vishal and Shekhar dishing out foot-tapping numbers, while filmmaker Karan Johar, actors Ranbir Kapoor and Shahrukh Khan were seen dancing with the bridegroom's mother Nita Ambani and other baaraatis.

Among the attendees noted names were that of Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai, veteran industrialists Ratan Tata and N Chandrasekaran, and global chief executives of the Bank of America, Samsung and J P Morgan.

Former prime minister H D Deve Gowda, former British PM Tony Blair and his wife Cherie, and former UN secretary general Ban Ki Moon were also present at the wedding, celebrations for which are going to last over three days.

Filmstars Rajinikanth, Aamir Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and cricketers Yuvraj Singh, Hardik and Krunal Pandya attended the wedding.

The pre-wedding festivities lasted till about 8.15 pm, after which the marriage ceremony began at an exquisitely decorated hall, sources said.

An elaborate spread featuring world cuisines has been prepared for the wedding, the second in the Ambani family after the December wedding of daughter Isha to Anand Piramal's son Anant.

A key highlight of the wedding is a musical fountain-cum-dance show, which also includes aerial acts, signifying a symmetry between water, earth and sky, according to sources.

The performance, by 150 Indian and international artistes, is set on the theme of Raas Lila, they said.
