Jamnagar airport, which is used to single-digit landings daily, will see around 50 landings on March 1 as guests arrive for the mega event. The venue holds special significance for the Ambani family due to their deep-rooted familial ties with the city.

Several business honchos are expected to join in the celebrations, including Morgan Stanley CEO Ted Pick, Disney CEO Bob Iger, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, Adnoc CEO Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber and EL Rothschild chair Lynn Forester de Rothschild.

Others include Yasir Al Rumayyan, Chairperson, Saudi Aramco; Vivi Nevo, Founder, NV Investments; Nitin Nohria, Former Dean, Harvard Business School; Dr Brian Levine, Founding Partner, CCRM New York; Kenichiro Yoshida, CEO, Sony; Joe Bae, CEO, KKR & Co.; Mark Carney, Chairman, Brookfield Asset Management; Khaldoon Al Mubarak, CEO & MD, Mubadala; Mark Tucker, Group Chairman, HSBC Holdings Plc; Anuj Ranjan, Managing Partner, Brookfield; Bill Ford, Chairman & CEO, General Atlantic; Carlos Slim, Investor; Jay Lee, Executive Chairman, Samsung Electronics; Howard Marks, Co-founder, Oaktree Capital Management; James Dinan, Founder, York Capital Management; and Richard Hilton, Chairman, Hilton & Hyland.

The guests will get a taste of India’s rich culture and heritage at the pre-wedding festivities of the couple. They will also receive traditional scarves made by women artisans from Kachchh and Lalpur in Gujarat.

All guests will travel to Jamnagar on chartered flights from Mumbai or Delhi between 8am and 1pm on March 1.

All three nights of celebrations will be themed. Day 1 is called An Evening in Everland, with the dress code listed as “elegant cocktail”.

Day 2 will host A Walk on the Wildside with “jungle fever” the suggested dress code. It is set to be held outdoors in the Ambanis’ animal rescue centre in Jamnagar, and guests are advised to wear comfortable shoes and clothing for this event.

Invitees will then swap their safari-themed outfits for more elegant ones for Mela Rouge. The dress code for this is “dazzling desi romance”, suggesting glamorous traditional South Asian attires for all.

The final day will also comprise two events. The first one, Tusker Trails, suggests “casual chic” dressing, as guests are expected to further explore the green ambience of Jamnagar.

The final party, Hashtakshar, calls for an elegant evening with heritage Indianwear.
