The Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre opening was a Bollywood-meets-Hollywood affair.
A “first-of-its-kind, multi-disciplinary cultural space,” the cultural center opened Friday in Mumbai, India, with a showcase of Indian arts and entertainment. The center aims to strengthen India’s cultural infrastructure with art literacy and outreach programs, as well as competitions.
Hollywood power couple Zendaya and Tom Holland made a sartorial splash at the center’s opening. The “Euphoria” actress was a starlit sky come to life in a cosmic, navy blue dress featuring star designs, while Holland sported a crisp, black-and-white tuxedo.
Several other Indian and American stars, from Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor to Nick and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, graced the red carpet Saturday to celebrate the center’s launch.

Couple Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas were also in attendance.
“Date night in Mumbai to celebrate the opening of the #nitamukeshambaniculturalcentre,” Nick Jonas wrote on Instagram. “So honored to have been there.”.
Chopra Jonas wore an upcycled vintage look that paired a colorful Banarasi patola saree with a holographic bustier, which served as an homage to the actress’s bicultural life.

“We were keen to create a space for both promoting and celebrating our artistic and cultural heritage in cinema and music, in dance and drama, in literature and folklore, in arts and crafts and in science and spirituality,” said founder Nita Mukesh Ambani. A space where we showcase the best of India to the world and welcome the best of the world to India.”.
