Nita Ambani turned show-stealer once again at the glitzy engagement party of her elder son Akash and Shloka Mehta in Mumbai last night with her dance performance. Ms Ambani danced to popular Bollywood song “Shubhaarambh” from the film “Kai Po Che!” that she danced to two nights earlier.
In videos being shared on social media, 54-year-old Ms Ambani – with background dancers in tow – can be seen performing traditional steps. Members of the audience can be heard whistling and cheering.
Saturday’s guest list at billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s home Antilia in south Mumbai included big names from Bollywood, politics and cricket, who are regular faces at most Ambani parties. Top celebrities including Sachin Tendulkar, Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai were in attendance. Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar were among the politicians who were seen.
Nita Ambani, daughter Isha and Shloka Mehta stuck to Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla outfits for the evening. The designers posted a photo of Ms Mehta in a stunning pink lehenga. The mother-daughter duo matched their shades, with Ms Ambani draping her saree in Gujarati style and her daughter wearing an embellished lehenga in the same shade of grey.
The Ambanis have been hosting a series of lavish parties in the run-up to the wedding of Akash and Shloka Mehta.
Snippets from Thursday’s pre-engagement party showed Nita Ambani dance performance and a clip of Ms Mehta touching Isha Ambani’s feet. The two are said to share a close bond.

Akash’s twin sister Isha got engaged to Anand, son of business tycoon Ajay Piramal in May.
Both the Ambani weddings are reportedly set to take place in December this year. In May, the Ambanis had announced the engagement party for Akash and his fiancee with an invite that came with a minute-long montage video of the couple, set to a popular Bollywood song.
