By the end of the sangeet, the Ambani family-Nita and Mukesh-performed as well. "The Anna Seva functions will continue for four days, from 7th to 10th December and will be performed three times a day at the Narayan Seva Sansthan, Udaipur".

The airport sees 950-960 aircraft moments daily and on Saturday saw an additional 37 flights to Udaipur as celebrities, film stars and politicians made a dash to the city for pre wedding celebrations. The art forms will be presented by master craftsmen and craftswomen themselves, who are putting their effort to keep these traditional arts alive. Swadesh Bazaar is a unique concept to encourage the craftsmanship of traditional Indian artisans, especially for a lot of indigenous crafts that need conservation and revival and have been supported by Reliance Foundation over the years.

Textiles of 30 types and paintings were among several items available in the market set up for the guests. "This unique exhibit has not just provided livelihoods to thousands of such artisans, but also giving an opportunity to showcase their rare works from every nook and corner of India, for people's interest, appreciation and support".
