Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger Glam Up Indian Wedding
The stars performed at a star-studded ceremony in Rajasthan.
Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Scherzinger were among the stars at the high-profile wedding of Indian billionaire Sanjay Hinduja and Anusuya Mahtani. Hinduja is the heir to a diversified business group based in the U.K. and India, who married his long-time girlfriend Mahtani. Her sister is well-known Mumbai-based fashion designer Nandita Mahtani, with whom Anusuya runs London-based fashion boutique Ananya.
The lavish three-day wedding extravaganza started on Feb. 10 and included venues such as the Jagmandir Island Palace resort in Udaipur, Rajasthan. In addition to the Hollywood guests, the wedding was graced by a bevy of Bollywood and Indian fashion celebrities.
Scherzinger made a fashion statement donning a pink Indian saree and posted pictures on her Instagram account. The former Pussycat Dolls singer posed with Nandita Mahtani, writing, “Thankyou for my beautiful #Sari.”
Lopez posted a selfie on her Twitter account with the hashtag #firsttimeinindia.
Lopez performed at the wedding, sporting a black leotard. A brief glimpse of her performance was captured in the below Instagram video by former MTV India VJ and actress Sophie Choudhry.
Scherzinger performed as well. The stellar guest list also included Bollywood actors Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, among others.
In the past, big ticket Indian weddings have also included performances by international celebrities such as Kylie Minogue. The Australian pop star performed at the 2004 wedding of Vanisha Mittal (daughter of one of the UK's top billionaires Lakshmi Mittal) and Amit Bhatia. Considered one of the most expensive weddings of all time, the festivities were held at various historic locations in Paris. The highlight was a performance by Minogue at the Eiffel Tower.
