Last month, we told you about the impending wedding of UK based billionnaire Sanjay Hinduja and designer Anu Mirchandani (Anu Mahtani). Click here to read the post. In the last few days, friends of the to-be-weds have been telling us about how this will indeed be the destination wedding of the year. The celebrations commence at the sprawling Hinduja bungalow in Juhu tomorrow, after which the Mahtanis will be hosting a pre-wedding reception at the Taj Mahal Palace in Colaba. And from 10th onwards, it will be three days of traditional festivities and parties in Udaipur. Over 800 guests will be flying in from over 20 countries and the celebrations there will begin with a Cocktail at the Manek Chowk, a poolside Mehendi at Shiv Niwas Palace, the Sangeet at The Zenana Mahal and the mega Wedding at the picturesque Jagmandir Island Palace.
Now the big news is this– Jennifer Lopez will be hitting the stage to celebrate the nuptials of the couple and she will be in Udaipur with her entourage of numerous dancers, backup singers and makeup artists, along with 20 tons of sound equipment. While the company taking care of entertainment for the wedding (Wedniksha- a division of Wizcraft) have kept all details under wraps we are told that in all likelihood Lopez will be staying at the Kohinoor Suite of The Oberoi Udaivilas. At Rs 3 lakh +/ Night it is one of the most expensive suites in the country, spread over 2650 sq ft with expansive views of the City Palace and Aravalli Hills. Obviously that is small price to pay for the stay of a singer who reportedly charges $1 million dollars to perform at a social event.

And while Wedniksha is taking care of all entertainment for the three days celebrations, the families have roped in Cox & Kings to manage the logistics & hospitality while ace wedding designer Dhun Cordo is styling most of the functions. And how can a mega Indian wedding be complete without star performers from B-town? Malaika Arora Khan and Akshay Kumar, we hear will be present at the lavish celebrations and entertain the elite guests.
