Isha Ambani wedding celebrations are doing rounds on social media for all the right reasons. Indian business tycoon Mukesh Ambani’s daughter is tying the knot with Anand Piramal and the star-studded ceremony was graced by top-notch American politicians like Hillary Clinton and featured Beyonce in a private music concert.
According to media reports, Mukesh Ambani, the richest businessman in India who surpassed Ali Baba executive Jack Ma in net worth stands at $44.3 billion spent a whopping $100 million on his daughter’s wedding.

Debate Over Isha Ambani Wedding Celebrations
Several aspects of Isha Ambani wedding celebrations came under discussion. First of all, it was the international audience to question who was wealthy enough to afford Beyonce’s private concert at their wedding celebrations. It is to be noted that Isha Ambani’s sangeet ceremony was rocked by Beyonce who traveled all the way from the States to Udaipur, Rajasthan.
Like, there were some analogies being drawn between Beyonce and Prime Minister of India as Ambani was capable of making both of them dance to their tunes…

Isha Ambani wedding celebrations also witnessed biggest names from Bollywood in attendance. These included Aamir Khan-Kiran Rao- Shahrukh Khan-Gauri Khan, Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas, Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh, Aishwarya Rai- Abhishek Bachchan, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, the Chopras, and many others.
