Superstar Justin Bieber was reportedly paid $10 million to perform at the pre-wedding celebration for Indian billionaire Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant.

Justin took to Instagram on Sunday (July 7) to share photos and videos of his performance at the traditional pre-wedding ceremony called “Sangeet” that took place in Mumbai on July 5.

The Grammy award-winning singer flew in for an exclusive performance where he serenaded the audience for a “Celebration of Hearts”. His 12-song setlist was packed with hits from his career, including “Sorry,” “What Do You Mean?,” “Peaches” and “Baby”.

Bieber’s private performance comes after the Ambani family also flew in Rihanna last March for the first pre-wedding celebration. The three-day pre-wedding party in the western city of Jamnagar was attended by around 1,200 high-profile guests, including Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates.

At the second event that featured a Mediterranean cruise with multiple stops through Europe, they had surprise performances from Katy Perry, the Backstreet Boys and Andrea Bocelli.

More celebrity appearances are anticipated for the grand wedding that will take place from July 12 to 14 at the home of Anant’s parents Mukesh and Nita Ambani – a 27-storey residence called Antilia – as well as the family-owned Jio World Convention Centre, a sprawling venue with a capacity for more than 16,000 people.

Who are the bride and groom?

Anant, 29, is the son of Asia’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani. Anant is the youngest of three siblings and runs the family’s conglomerate, Reliance Industries.

Merchant, 29, is the daughter of pharma tycoon Viren Merchant. She works for her father’s company, Encore Healthcare.

They both met through mutual friends during a drive in 2017. “That first meeting just sparked something special between us, and it wasn’t long before we started dating,” Merchant told Vogue.

In a speech during their first pre-wedding celebration in Jamnager, Ambani said: “I am 100 percent the lucky one. It feels like I met Radhika yesterday, but every day, I fall more and more in love.” ICA/Expat Media
