Pakistani Actress Criticizes 'Indecent' Wealth Display at Extravagant Ambani Wedding

Pakistani actress Zoya Nasir has criticised the extravagant wedding of Anant Ambani, the youngest son of India’s wealthiest business tycoon, Mukesh Ambani, who is set to tie the knot with his fiancée Radhika Merchant on Friday. Ceremonies have been ongoing since March in Jamnagar and Gujarat, India, featuring several influential personalities from social, political, business, entertainment, and sports realms.

Further celebrations for Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s marriage are planned from May 29 to June 1 in Italy and southern France, with ongoing festivities scheduled in Mumbai through July 14. The extensive and expensive wedding has sparked widespread interest on social media, with Pakistani actresses also expressing disapproval.

Zoya Nasir remarked on her Instagram story, “I have never seen such an indecent way of displaying wealth before. We believe that you have earned money through hard work and want to show the world your happiness, but in my view, this is not just about the happiness of your son, but another story altogether.”

The pre-wedding events included a highly anticipated sangeet night featuring celebrities from Bollywood and Hollywood. A performance by Justin Bieber, reportedly paid USD 10 million, received mixed reactions from netizens. Bieber’s lackluster performance, clad in a vest and trousers that slipped progressively lower, was mocked on social media. One user quipped, “10 million USD for this rubbish.”

Earlier celebrations included a three-day event in March featuring Rihanna, and a luxury cruise in May with performances by Katy Perry and Andrea Bocelli. The Ambani family also hosted a mass wedding for 50 underprivileged couples last week.

Previous events saw Beyonce perform at Isha Ambani’s wedding in 2018 and Chris Martin of Coldplay at Akash and Shloka’s pre-wedding affair.
