Beyoncé is basically the queen of the universe, so having her perform at your wedding seems like a completely unattainable dream.
But, on Sunday, she performed at the pre-wedding party of Anand Piramal and Isha Ambani, the daughter of Mukesh Ambani, the richest man in India. And, yes, you read that right. This wasn’t even at her wedding reception, which will take place in Mumbai on Wednesday, December 12. This was for the pre-wedding extravaganza in Udaipur’s City Palace.
Wearing an embellished gold body suit, Beyoncé performed some of her all-time hits, like “Crazy In Love” and “Perfect.”

Judging from the videos, there was even enough time for a costume change.

Again, the video below is from a private party, not a concert in Madison Square Garden.

So, naturally, everyone on social media is asking the same question:
First of all, how rich do you have to be to have BEYONCÉ perform at your wedding?!
— tim hell. (@itsTimHell) December 9, 2018
The answer: very rich. Mukesh Ambani, 61, is the founder and chairman of the oil and gas giant Reliance Industries, and, according to Forbes, his net worth is valued at a whopping $47.3 billion, making him the 20th richest person on the planet.
Needless to say, he spared no expense on his little girl’s big day, chartering guests from all over the world, and basically shutting down the city of Udaipur.
According to India Today, “all five-star hotels in the city are completely booked and are catering to the Ambanis’ and Piramals’ guests. The families have also booked over a thousand luxury cars to ferry their guests to and from the Udaipur airport.”
While Bey’s performance was, presumably, the highlight of the weekend, other activities included a Swadesh Bazaar, where Indian traditional artisans were able to display their crafts. There was also a carnival, lavish lunches and dinners, a fashion walk, performances by Bollywood singers, and tons of music and dancing. Some of the most notable guests included none other than Hillary Clinton, as well as Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, who recently celebrated their own wedding.
