Anand Ambani’s engagement to Radhika Merchant on Thursday gave the Bollywood stars another reason to don the best outfits for a party. In attendance were Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Gauri Khan, Aryan Khan, Janhvi Kapoor, Khushi Kapoor and many others.
Deepika Padukone showed up in a gorgeous red saree and a chunky diamond necklace. Beside her, Ranveer sparkled in a black outfit. The pair posed for the camera as usual before heading to the party. Gauri Khan beamed in a silver dress and posed with son Aryan, who wore an all-black suit. Her husband, actor Shah Rukh Khan, was also spotted in black but he walked straight into the venue and refused to pose for the paparazzi.
Katrina Kaif wore a white outfit with impressive shoulder pads. She posed alone for the paparazzi when husband Vicky Kaushal canceled the event. Dressed in blue kurta pajamas, Salman Khan had a very special date for the evening: his niece Alizeh Agnihotri. She looked lovely in her white lehenga.

Anant and Radhika had a traditional engagement ceremony during which they performed ancient Gujarati rituals such as gol dhana and chunari vidhi.
Radhika is the daughter of Viren Merchant, CEO of Encore Healthcare. She is from Kutch, Gujarat. She has trained in Bharatnatyam for eight years and is the disciple of Guru Bhavana Thakar of Shree Nibha Arts. In June 2022, Radhika made headlines after the Ambani family hosted a grand Arangetram ceremony at Jio World Center. ‘Arangetram’ is a Tamil word meaning a dancer takes the stage after completing formal training. It is the debut on stage of a student of Indian classical dance and classical music after years of training.
Anant, son of Nita and Mukesh Ambani, graduated from Brown University in the US and has since served in various roles at Reliance Industries, including as a board member of Jio Platforms and Reliance Retail Ventures. He currently leads RIL’s energy business.
