From the Tatas, Birlas, Goenkas, Poonawallas to other billionaires and CEOs of illustrious global companies, from international designers to Bollywood’s finest, sportspersons and politicians, everyone who’s anyone was at The Oberoi Udaivilas in Udaipur for the wedding festivities.

The Ambanis and Piramals served food to some 5100 people three times a day for three days leading to the wedding.

Amongst the esteemed guests was none other than former FLOTUS Hilary Clinton!

Spotted Rhea Kapoor, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra posing for a group picture!

Precious pic 🥰!! The first time in my life that i asked to be introduced to someone…Thank you @smritiiraniofficial for the same 🙂. I loove @hillaryclinton ♥️. A woman who has weathered every storm with equanimity and who never gives up…I felt hopeful while she campaigned to be #President and felt a certain hopelessness when she didn’t make it…But in a few days i realized that only when the glass ceiling is shattered can we reach the sky and she broke it for us…and thus paved the way for someone else to reach for the boundless blue. You may find many reasons to dislike her but that’s because you are judging her because she dared to travel where most don’t…Thank you @hillaryclinton for all that you are and for being a HERO ☀️!! And thank you my #siddharthroykapur for being a walking talking encyclopedia on American politics and for thereby introducing me to Her 🙂. I couldn’t have imagined waking up at 6am to watch the primaries until you happened to me 😜.

The newlyweds Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were there too, along with mom Madhu Chopra, and sister Parineeti Chopra.

Seen here is PeeCee, Nick, and Madhu Chopra with Isha Ambani.

The event decor was done by our very own Manish Malhotra, who’s launched a wedding division that’s designed the tiniest detail of the wedding.

Here he is posing with Nita and Mukesh Ambani and the bride-to-be!

The pre-wedding festivities were an absolute spectacle to behold, mostly because you had everyone from the Khans to the Bachchans to Karan Johar perform on stage.

The setup was stunning beyond words, and looked even more gorgeous with the lights at night! There was a towering idol of Lord Shrinathji built, with temple stambhs that might just take your breath away!

The bride’s mother, Nita Ambani, who is a trained dancer herself, performed a beautiful classical number dedicated to Lord Krishna.

Isha Ambani gave a soulful performance on Samjhawan from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania.

And here’s the couple, Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal, dancing on Mitwa from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna!

They even danced on Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’!

Check out the entire Ambani fam, Nita, Mukesh, Isha, Akash and Anant shaking a leg to Mahi Ve from Kal Ho Na Ho!

This is probably one of the few times you’re going to get to see Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan perform on a stage together!

They danced to Dilliwali Girlfriend from YJHD, which is kinda symbolic, considering Gauri was indeed SRK’s Dilliwali Girlfriend first, before she became his wife!

Salman Khan decided to step away from the limelight and become a background dancer during this performance of Koi Mil Gaya from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai by Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta!

Fair enough, Aman ki entry toh baad mein hoti hi na!

Katrina Kaif, who arrived with Salman, also reportedly performed. The two left the next day for Mumbai already.

Aamir Khan and SRK were in full Let’s Nacho mood and shook a leg with the Ambani and Piramal fams!

You’re going to go “Awwwwww” when you watch Abhishek and Aishwarya recreate their Guru magic on stage!

Priyanka Chopra reprised her role as our desi girl in this performance!

We did miss Big B during the festivities, but his song Shava Shava from K3G did play, and SRK got the ladkiwale and ladkewala dancing to it!

Can you spot Tina and Anil Ambani dancing?

Okay now this part’s my favourite! Remember G-U-J-J-U from Kal Ho Na Ho? Well, guess what?

Be like SRK and say Su vaat chhe! Bau fine chhe! after watching this!

Apparently, SRK even had a speech prepared but…

Another performance that might will give you major FOMO for not being there was by Arijit Singh!

Alright, alright. Now for the moment that has had people excited for it ever since it was announced! QUEEN BEYONCÉ is in the house!

Bey looked out of this world in her many outfits, from designers like Shane and Falguni Peacock, Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, and Shivan & Narresh!

Would you look at that, she’ singing ‘Perfect’!

We are soooooo not worthy! But here she is!

Another couple, whose dance videos from the night have gone viral, is none other than our newly weds Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone!

The couple flew in a day later and of course, Baba had already got his dancing shoes on!

Seen here killing it with Akash Ambani and Karisma Kapoor on Beyoncé’s Crazy In Love!

Gallaan Goodiyan was played, so of course we have a visual of DP and Baba dancing to it! And joining them are Anil Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan!

Mrs Ranveer Singh’s can still rock it if garba’s played and she’s seen here enjoying herself on Chogada!

Don’t miss Sidharth Malhotra right behind her!

They played Khalibali and Baba was right there on the dance floor to make it awesome!

Ranveer even managed to go to the DJ in the middle of Tareefan and make a special request!

We wonder what it was?

Here’s a glimpse of what the venue looked like!

One of the pre-wedding festivities was a phoolon ki holi function, where singer Parthiv Gohil performed, as guests played holi with flowers!

Check out this adorable video of little Aaradhya Bachchan being taught a little ghoomar dance by one of the locals, as mommy Aish cheers her on!

The wedding will be on December 12th, which means there’s two more days of festivities that we can expect. A lot of the stars have already been spotted at the Udaipur airport, heading back home. But the party is still very much on!
