The Ambanis are known to be close to the Indian film industry.
Isha and Anand are childhood friends and were engaged in May when Anand proposed on a trip the couple took to the hill station of Mahabaleshwar. The billionaire couple's three-day engagement ceremony in September was held at Italy's Lake Como which also made headlines as it included a performance by John Legend. The pre-wedding party earlier this month saw Beyonce flown to Udaipur for a performance.
