After India's richest man, Mukesh Ambani, threw his daughter the most expensive wedding the country had ever seen in 2018, people have their eyes transfixed on the Anant-Radhika Merchant wedding later this year, Indian Express reported.

The three-day pre-wedding festivities have kicked off in Jamnagar, the hometown of the Reliance group, with VVIP dignitaries flying into the city.

In a video, Nita Ambani expressed how important it was to her to celebrate her youngest son's courtship with Radhika in Jamnagar, the family's hometown.

She said: "Gujarat is where we come from; it's where Mukesh and his father built the refinery and I started my career."

Till March 6, the Jamnagar airport will work as an "international terminal" to handle around 150 unscheduled flights that include Airbuses and Boeings.

Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Ivanka Trump, Sundar Pichai, Shahrukh Khan, and Gautam Adani are among the illustrious guests on the list; many have already begun to arrive.

According to the event's itinerary, all attendees will travel to Jamnagar on March 1.

It is suggested that each visitor bring no more than one piece of hold luggage and one piece of hand luggage, or a maximum of three bags per pair.

For the second day, "A Walk on the Wildside" is scheduled, and "Jungle Fever" is the recommended attire.

It will take place outside in the Ambanis' animal rescue sanctuary in Jamnagar, and as it will resemble a safari, attendees should wear comfortable clothing and footwear. 

The guests will then proceed to "Mela Rouge", which will be a potpourri of desi activities, and the guests will wear their favourite South Asian attire.

On the third day, the guests will attend two events: "Tusker Trails" and "Hashtakshar."

The first event will be an outdoor affair where the guests will enjoy the natural beauty of Jamnagar, and for the last and final event, they’ll be dressed in "heritage Indianwear."

All the guests will be provided with personal laundry services, saree drapes, and other customs assistance.

Furthermore, a group of 21 cooks is reportedly being flown in for the opulent occasion.

Over 2,500 dishes will be prepared throughout the three-day event, with cuisines ranging from Thai, Japanese, Mexican and Parsi.

Over 70 items will be available for breakfast, over 200 for lunch, and over 275 for dinner. Midnight meals will be on offer from 12 am to 4 pm, with over 85 items on offer.
