New Delhi: Mumbai, a city that generally has a vibrant cultural scene, but has been muted in the last few months, came alive once again with a Bharatnatyam performance that everyone is talking about. It was the ‘arangetram’ or ‘ascent to the stage’ of Radhika Merchant, the ‘bride to be’ to Anant Ambani, the younger son of Nita and Mukesh Ambani.
Everyone who is someone in the city was there at the Grand Theater in the Jio World Centre at BKC on Sunday to support and encourage the first on-stage solo performance by Radhika. The Merchant and Ambani families turned out in full strength and so did their friends from the worlds of public service, business and the arts. The excitement among the guests was worth watching as they passed through the magical Dhirubhai Ambani Square into the Grand Theater at the Jio World Centre.
Here are some glimpses from Radhika Merchant’s ‘Arangetram’ ceremony. Radhika took the stage today at the Grand Theatre in Jio World Centre in Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai.
The event will conclude with dinner at The Lotus Ballroom.
Here are some more glimpses from the event.
