Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta's wedding invite, which looked like a board game container, came surrounded with white flowers. It had a picture of Lord Krishna and Radha in the front. The picture had an animated disc on top that lit up when the card was opened. As one opened the pink box, an instrumental rendition of the devotional song Achutam Keshvam played in the background and you see a beautiful picture of Radha and Lord Krishna in a silver frame. The booklet-like invite had many pop-up elements and listed all the functions. The first page of the invite read: “O Suryadeva, you are the light in our Akash. You illuminate our every Shloka.” The invite also had a personalised note from Mukesh and Nita Ambani.
