    The celebration, held in the city of Udaipur a few days ahead of the wedding itself, was attended by a number of prominent business tycoons, star athletes, movie stars and politicians.

    Former US Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton joined the host of celebrities attending the celebration held ahead of the wedding of Isha Ambani, the daughter of Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani whom Reuters described as "India’s richest man."

    ​According to the news agency, the wedding ceremony is expected to take place in Mumbai on Wednesday, but the pre-wedding celebrations launched this weekend in the city of Udaipur, "with feasts, singing and dancing" and other rituals.

    As Reuters points out citing Indian media reports, the Clintons and the Ambanis enjoy "an association that goes back more than 18 years", with Hillary Clinton herself dining with the Ambanis this March when she attended a conference in Mumbai.

    The festivities were also reportedly attended by Bollywood celebrities, star athletes, business tycoons and politicians, including Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.
