After hosting guests for a wedding bash that spanned over days in Mumbai, the Ambanis, on Tuesday, organised two special musical fountain shows for nearly 7000 members of the Army, Navy, Paramilitary Forces, Mumbai Police, Railway Protection Force and their families.

On Saturday, Asia's richest man Mukesh Ambani hosted a lavish wedding for his son Akash who tied the knot with diamantaire Russell Mehta's daughter Shloka. The wedding was followed by an extravagant Mangal Parv on Sunday, and a reception on Tuesday.



The Ambanis organised a special function for the security forces, at the Dhirubhai Ambani Square at Jio World Centre in Bandra, as a token of gratitude and to seek their blessings for the newlyweds.

The function began with a performance on a devotional Lord Krishna song, followed by a musical fountain show on 'Vande Mataram', concluding with pictures showcasing the journey of Akash and Shloka from childhood to their wedding day.

Talking at the occasion, Nita Ambani said that Reliance Foundation will take full responsibility of the education, employment and livelihood of the families of the country's martyrs. She went on to add that the foundation is also forming a skill development centre for the armed forces and their families.
