Rihanna Performs at the Wedding of Indian Billionaire’s Son | World’s Super Rich Arrive for the Festivities

Rihanna is ‘being paid £5million’ to perform at the pre-wedding celebration for the son of India’s richest man as she arrives in Jamnagar for three-day party

Rihanna made her way to Jamnagar to partake in the pre-wedding festivities of the son of India’s wealthiest individual, receiving a £5million fee for her performance at the event. The celebration, expected to draw global tech CEOs, Bollywood celebrities, pop stars, and political figures, is hosted by Mukesh Ambani, a billionaire industrialist, and is anticipated to cost around £120million. The event’s catering, provided by a top Indian five-star hotel group, is rumored to be valued at £20million.

The grand affair is just a precursor to the wedding of Ambani’s son, Anant, to Radhika Merchant, set to occur in Mumbai in July, with costs expected to soar even higher. Rihanna, along with her partner A$AP Rocky, was seen arriving in India for the performance. Mukesh Ambani, Asia’s richest man with a fortune exceeding $114 billion, is known for his lavish celebrations, having previously paid Beyonce $6million for a private concert at his daughter’s wedding in 2018.

The pre-wedding bash kicked off with a generous gesture, feeding over 51,000 villagers in Jamnagar, Ambani’s hometown. The event, spanning three days, will feature performances by Rihanna, illusionist David Blaine, and Bollywood’s Diljit Dosanjh, with guests like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and various dignitaries on the invite list.

The celebrations are marked by opulence, with no expense spared. The Ambanis are also constructing a Hindu temple complex in Jamnagar to maintain the cultural and spiritual essence of the wedding festivities. The event will include themed days, such as a “jungle fever” day, and will host 1,000 VIPs in luxurious accommodations. Over 100 chefs will cater the event, offering a vast array of dishes from traditional Indian to international cuisines.

The couple has arranged for 21 chefs to serve their guests at the lavish event, emphasizing the grand scale of the celebration. Guests are subject to a strict dress code, with different themes for each day of the festivities. The event underscores the Ambani family’s penchant for grandeur, setting a new benchmark for lavish weddings.

The invitation list also features Carl Bildt, former Prime Minister of Sweden; Stephen Harper, former Prime Minister of Canada; Donald Harrison, President of Google; Jorge Quiroga, former President of Bolivia; Kevin Rudd, former Prime Minister of Australia; and Klaus Schwab, Chairperson of the World Economic Forum.

Expected attendees in Jamnagar include Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, CEO and MD of ADNOC; Murray Auchincloss, CEO of bp; Thomas Barrack, Chairman and Founder of Colony Capital; John Chambers, CEO of JC2 Ventures; Bob Dudley, former CEO of bp; Christopher Elias, President of Global Development at BMGF; John Elkann, Executive Chairman at Exor; and Ari Emanuel, CEO of Endeavor.

Additionally, Michelle Ritter, Founder and CEO of Steel Perlot; Eric Schmidt, Founder of Schmidt Futures; Ram Shriram, Founding and Managing Partner of Sherpalo; Jure Sola, CEO of Sanmina Corp; Jim Teague, CEO of Enterprise GP; Mark Tucker, Group Chairman of HSBC Holdings Plc; and journalist Fareed Zakaria are among the other notable individuals expected to attend.
