Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani and wife Nita are in Udaipur ahead of daughter Isha's pre-wedding festivities that are set to take place over the weekend.

A picture has been circulating on social media that is purportedly the set-up for the Shri Nath Ji Maha Aarti. The picture shows a massive, white Lord Krishna idol and several gold temple pillar-like structures against a backdrop of the lake.
Meanwhile, Vardan Nayak, who is Isha's go-to-guy for make-up, was incidentally spotted at the Mumbai airport. While he himself posted the airport picture on his Instagram feed, it is not known whether he is also Udaipur-bound.

The extravagant celebrations will be captured by celebrity wedding photographer Joseph Radhik, who was also the lensman at Priyanka-Nick and Anushka-Virat's weddings. While there has been no official confirmation from the families on this, Radhik's post from Chopra's wedding - that also has Isha in the frame - was captioned, "One of those happy moments when you see two Stories brides on stage!"

After the Udaipur celebrations, the families will return to Mumbai where there will be four more days of functions, including two receptions.

Isha and Anand, both Ivy League alumni, got engaged in September at Lake Como, months after Piramal proposed to her at a temple in Mahabaleshwar. The families have been in celebratory mood ever since the proposal; the Ambanis also hosted a Ghor Dana for the couple at their residence Antilia in May.
