By Rima

Last year when business tycoon Mukesh Ambani celebrated the wedding occasion of his daughter Isha Ambani, it remained in the talks for several weeks. This year his son Akash Ambani wed-locked with Shloka Mehta at Jio World Centre and this was no less of a lavish affair where Mukesh Ambani left no stone unturned to turn the event into a grand extravaganza.

The event took place in March 2019 and guests from all over the country spurred in to bless the couple. Spotted were stars from the world of Bollywood, politics, business and even overseas.

Coming to cricket, we all know that the Ambanis own a team in the IPL – Mumbai Indians. Ahead of IPL 2019, the team reunited at Akash’s wedding. A good number of players, staff and coaches from the team were present to grace the occasion. Sachin to Zaheer to their life-partners was evidently seen in traditional attires posing for pictures and attending the media.

The famous cricketer and former Indian vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane also attended the wedding with his wife. Newly married Ajinkya looked grounded in a golden silk kurta with glass embroidery with his wife Radhika Dhopawakar who looked gorgeous in a grey pink flair lehenga.


Legendary name Sachin Tendulkar looked happy with wife Anjali who was also spotted amongst others. Where Sachin donned wine coloured kurta with embellishments and sported a medium length curly hair with pride, Anjali kept it sober in a traditional yellow Banarasi saree draped in a Gujarati style paired with a contrast blue elbow length sleeved blouse. Her splendid style was complemented with a diamond neckpiece, open hair and pink lip colour.

Ex-cricketer Zaheer Khan and Bollywood actress wife Sagarika Ghatge also attended the grand wedding of Akash and Shloka. Known as a power couple, Zaheer and Sagarika resorted to a traditional style as well. Zaheer was seen wearing a simple navy blue Nehru jacket with detailing around the collar and wife Sagarika looked outstanding in a beige and pink embroidered lehenga. She teamed her outfit with a diamond necklace, pearl bangles and gold colour clutch. Pink lip colour and wavy hair fairly completed her look.

Harbhajan Singh, a former cricketer who was also a part of the Mumbai Indian team last year, was seen posing with his family, wife Geeta Basra and daughter while entering the venue. Known to set trends in the field, he was no different in the occasion. An all pink bandhgala kurta with a pink floral jacket teamed with a pink turban justified his cheerfulness. Geeta looked ravishing in a purple lehenga with a golden border and a bold gold necklace. His daughter appeared to be a cute little angel in a light pink lehenga.  Seems like having a close tie with the Ambanis, he was spotted earlier in their other wedding events as well.
