Isha Ambani And Anand Piramal’s pre-wedding festivities:Beyonce performs,SRK-Gauri Aish Abhishek Shake a Leg

It comes after global pop star Beyonce was hired to perform at an elaborate pre-wedding bash in Udaipur, Rajasthan, in the lead up to the big day.

Isha Ambani, the daughter of India's richest man, is tying the knot with Anand Piramal, son of another Indian billionaire, this week.

Sources said the feat was achieved in the wake of the pre-wedding bash of Isha Ambani, daughter of industrialist and Indias richest person Mukesh Ambani, in Udaipur in Rajasthan.

Wedding guests even have an exclusive access to an app which maps out the activities, including a private concert by Beyoncé.

Before Beyoncé stole the show, eyes were on Clinton and another former secretary of state, John F. Kerry - both of whom danced the bhangra, a Punjabi folk dance, onstage with the Ambani family, according to India Today.

Unlike the Udaipur affair, which saw a wide array of guests, including former U.S. first lady Hillary Clinton, global bankers and Bollywood stars, the Ambani-Piramal nuptials are expected to be a smaller affair with a much pruned list of guests who may number around 600.

Wednesday evening's actual wedding was set to be a more private affair with around 600 close friends and family, and some politicians, expected to be on the guest list.

As a wedding gift, the Piramals reportedly gave the couple a 50,000-square-foot home by the coast in Mumbai.

Indian weddings traditionally involve several days of celebrations, and that was just the start.

Ambani's father, Mukesh Ambani, is the 19th richest man in the world, with a net worth of $43,4 billion, reports The Washington Post.

During Isha's pre-wedding festivities, pop sensation Beyonce performed at the event.

On a related note, Shah Rukh Khan, Gauri Khan, American singer-songwriter Beyonce, Katrina Kaif also set the stage on fire with their performance.

The wedding ceremony is planned for Wednesday at Mukesh Ambani's 27-story home, which towers over southern Mumbai and includes a six-level parking garage and three helipads. Local news outlets reported that Chopra and Jonas also attended the Ambani-Piramal festivities in Udaipur.
