Some of the world's top business leaders are expected to attend the pre-wedding celebrations of Anant Ambani in India. Ambani, the son of billionaire Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of the Fortune 500 company Reliance Industries, is set to marry Radhika Merchant in July.

However, the celebrations will commence in March, with tech heavyweights such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg among the 1,200 guests slated to attend the festivities, according to the Guardian. The star-studded list of invitees also includes Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai and Samsung Electronics executive chairman Jay Y. Lee. Rihanna and illusionist David Blaine are also set to perform at the event.

Mukesh Ambani's wife joined forces with Gates last year when Nita Ambani's Reliance Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation unveiled an initiative to support one million women entrepreneurs. Facebook invested nearly $6 billion for a minority stake in Jio Platforms, whose parent company is Ambani's Reliance Industries, in 2020.

Zuckerberg held a virtual discussion with Ambani in 2020 as part of a Facebook Fuel For India event, where the pair discussed how technology could boost economic progress. Pichai has crossed paths with Ambani before, as the pair both attended the White House's State Dinner for India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi last June, video footage from the event shared by The Tribune showed. Lee and Ambani are among Asia's richest families.

Samsung and Jio Platforms entered a joint project in 2017 to boost network coverage and capacity across India, per a press release at the time. The Indian-American businessman is the chair and CEO of the software company Adobe. Disney announced an $8.5 billion merger of its India media assets with Ambani's Reliance this week. Most of Bollywood's top stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, and Ranbir Singh are also set to attend the celebrations. The daughter of former US President Donald Trump is also on the invite list.
