Packaged beautifully within box the size of a board game with an animated rotating disc that lights up and a picture of Lord Krishna and Radha is the invite to the much awaited wedding of Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta. A video gave a first peek at the wedding invite, the first of which was offered at Mumbai’s Siddhivinayak temple.
Akash Ambani, the older son of Nita and Mukesh Ambani, got engaged to childhood friend Shloka Mehta in March last year. Shloka Mehta is the youngest daughter of diamantaire Russell Mehta and his wife Mona. They are to get married on March 9, according to the wedding invite seen in the video.
The pink box has a photo of Lord Krishna and Radha standing in a field with flowers and peacocks. The box opens up to a compartment with another photo of Lord Krishna and Radha in a silver photo frame. Opening the inner compartment leads to the pop-up wedding card. The card, orange in colour, opens up to a note, which seeks blessings for the bride and groom to-be on one side. “O Suryadeva (Sun God). You are the light in our Akash. You illuminate our every Shloka,” it reads.
