The country is gearing up to see one of its most expensive weddings as the Amabanis tie the pagdi to get down to tying the knot. The country’s richest businessman’s son, Akash Ambani recently announced his engagement to the youngest daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta. In the engagement party held in Mumbai on Monday, Bollywood stars made a beeline for the party as usual. While most honoured the invite, a few kept away due to work reasons we assume.
One of Bollywood’s most powerful family, the Bachchans were represented by Aishawarya Rai Bachchan and her daughter Aaradhya Bachchan. Usually seen together, this time it was only the ladies who attended the party while the men, Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan kept away. Abhishek is currently busy shooting for Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan while his father, had just wrapped shoot for Aamir Khan starrer Thugs of Hindostan. He was reported to have fallen sick during the shoot which may be a good reason why Big B may have chosen to rest at home. The same rule applies for Aamir whose director-producer wife Kiran Rao was seen attending the party alone.
Ranbir Kapoor was missing as well as he is busy shooting for Brahmastra. While his co-star Alia Bhatt is back, she chose to stay away from the party. It was reported that she had hurt herself during the shoot of the adventure drama.Party lovers Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan too were missing in action as they are busy working for Sui Dhaaga. Arjun Kapoor, another close aide of the family too had to give the otherwise star studded party a miss since he is currently shooting for Namastey England. Sans these few missing faces, the party otherwise had star attendees like Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, Karan Johar and others.
