The Winter Wonderland in St. Moritz.
The Ambanis and Mehtas' recent extravagant Swiss bash has been making not just national, but also global headlines. The families pulled all stops to make Akash and Shloka's pre-wedding festivities in the luxurious Alpine resort town of St. Moritz an affair to remember.

Based on a Winter Wonderland theme, the festivities included a #AkuStoleTheShlo carnival - for the uninitiated, that is the couple's social media hashtag.

While the carnival was a huge success with the guests, the Ambanis also opened it up for locals on the second day.



Christian Gartmann, the spokesperson for the Ambanis in Switzerland revealed in an interview with ENJY TV that on the second day of the celebrations, the families invited 250 locals for 2 hours to the carnival - that featured a ferris wheel, bumpy cars, candy stalls among other attractions.

"We are very happy that it worked out with the city, with the mayor, and with the executive board of the city. We made an arrangement to open it for 2 hours, but we had to limit it to 250 people since we didn't want long queues at the attractions," Gartmann said.

But declining to confirm rumours about superstars being in the town for the celebrations, Gartmann added with a laugh, "I've heard rumours too."

Applauding the idea, mayor of St. Moritz Christian Jott Jenny said it was great to have the event in their town, "I have never seen so many happy faces, it's my best 2 hours till now."

He went on to emphasise the need for more such events, adding, "This was something that used to happen in the good old times, but probably now we'll have more of these good old times."


And as for how did he manage to get the families to open up the carnival for the public, he said, "Talk to the people and try, try and try. And sometimes, it works."

From the video showing ecstatic guests, it seems like it was definitely worth the effort.

And Marijana Jakic, Brand Manager St. Mortiz agreed, saying, "I think we need events like this every spring and every autumn."


As for the wedding party, they are back in Maximum City, where Akash and Shloka will tie the knot on March 9. But social media has not had enough of the pre-wedding festivities, with videos going viral. While one video shows RIL Chairman Mukesh Ambani dancing on 'Ae Meri Zohra Jabeen' with wife Nita, in another video the world's 8th richest man is performing with his son's mother-in-law Mona Mehta.

Other social media posts show Bollywood celebs and the families grooving to Coldplay and The Chainsmokers - who performed at the sangeet cerem.



The Brown alumnus proposed to Shloka, Russell and Mona Mehta's daughter in March, and the couple celebrated the new beginning surrounded by close family and friends in Goa. This was followed by a star-studded engagement for the couple at the Ambanis' Mumbai residence 'Antilia'.

Last year, RIL Chairman Mukesh Ambani - who has become the first Indian to break into the top 10 on Hurun's Rich List - hosted an extravagant wedding for daughter Isha with festivities spread over months in Lake Como, Udaipur (that had a concert by Beyonce), and Mumbai.
