Explanation

At the three-day extravagant pre-wedding celebration of Anant Ambani and his fiancée, Radhika Merchant, a host of global personalities, and Bollywood celebrities, including sports stars and tech billionaires, were present. Billionaire Mukesh Ambani and the Ambani family ensured that the three days of celebrations from March 1-3 were full of splendor and beauty at the various functions’ venues. These venues became the center of attention and the perfect setting for lavish festivities.

In this case, an 18-second viral video shows a huge cake coming in a trolley. We see many people watching it and some filming the scene. This post is shared stating, “The cake looks like Mahal. Also, how will they cut this cake.?” The video displays words including ‘Ambani cake’ and claim that it is from Ambani’s son Anant Ambani’s pre wedding festivities. One such post can be seen here.

Likewise, the second claim post shows an image of a sofa seating arrangement decorated with red roses all around in a beige backdrop. This image is shared stating, “Are you invited to Ambani’s wedding.” One such post can be seen here.

Let’s check the authenticity of these viral claims.

What’s the truth?

Fact Check: 1

We started our research using the watermark on the viral video which lead us to the Instagram page, ‘Sachkadwahai.’ This post was captioned “Tell me you have too much money without telling me you have too much money.” Also, when we looked at the post carefully we noticed that it was uploaded on 18 December 2023.

When we searched further the same video was available on Reddit.com with the caption, “Massive Wedding Cake Shaped Like Cathedral.” Interestingly, this post was uploaded on the website some nine months ago.

All this information clarifies that the video is old and was on social media before the Ambani family’s pre-wedding festivities.

Fact Check: 2

Here, we started the research using the simple Google reverse image search which led us to a Pinterest page.  ‘Wedding Estates’ is the handle name with 55k followers.

The page described “There are a few luxury wedding decor ideas that have been taking over this year! Scroll down to see the rest of 2019’s luxury wedding decor ideas.”

We found the viral photo uploaded on April 30, 2019, when we searched the page for more details.

This confirms that the viral image is old and available online before the Ambani family’s pre-wedding event.

Conclusion:

Thus, we conclude that the viral video showcasing a huge cake is not from the Anant Ambani’s pre-wedding function.

Also, the grand seating arrangement image was posted on Pinterest from 2019, which means this is an old image not related to Ambani’s grand pre-wedding events.
