GLAMOUR: Jennifer Lopez performs at the wedding
Big names from Indian entertainment, business and politics may have been on the guest list of the mammoth £15-million wedding of billionaire Sanjay Hinduja and his girlfriend Anu Mahtani, but Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Scherzinger were definitely the centre of attention during the week-long celebration.
The pop stars were reportedly paid up to £650,000 each to perform at the wedding, and they didn’t disappoint the 800 guests at the main three-day celebration in Udaipur, with everyone including the world media talking about their presence.
Although Nicole looked stunning in traditional saris and delivered a knock-out live show with actors Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh at the sangeet, Jennifer’s high-energy performance received top billing at the main wedding reception and recei-ved the most praise. She wore sexy outfits and even did a dance to some British bhangra tracks in the middle of her set.
Not surprisingly, the high-profile guests, including Indian celebrities, lined up to have photographs taken with the singers, who also took time out to sample the local culture.
The event brought together some of the world’s richest and most powerful people on privately-chartered planes. All the guests including Shilpa Shetty, Preity Zinta, Sophie Choudry and Raveena Tandon stayed at a palatial hotel booked out by the couple and were chauffeured around in a fleet of top-class BMWs.
Manish Malhotra designed many of the outfits, including the bridal gown, which reportedly cost £5,000. The two singers took back plenty of Indian souvenirs, including sexy traditional outfits.
