Businesswoman Ambani, the daughter of India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, is set to marry Anand Piramal in Mumbai on Tuesday. The pre-wedding celebrations began in the desert city of Udaipur on Saturday, with guests reportedly being flown in on 100 chartered flights.

A host of Bollywood stars are on the guest list, including Priyanka Chopra – fresh from her own wedding to Nick Jonas last week. A number of high-profile politicians are also set to attend, including Bill and Hillary Clinton.
