Mukesh Ambani’s son Anant’s wedding events are going viral across the world, creating quite the buzz. The extravagant Sangeet videos are the talk of the town, and everyone seems to have an opinion. Enter Pakistani actor Mishi Khan, who decided to make a video to share her thoughts on the Ambani’s never-ending celebrations.

In her video, Mishi didn’t hold back: “I want to ask Mukesh Ambani when this wedding will end. In the span of the celebrations, normal people have gotten married and have already had children but there is no end in sight for this wedding… When will they leave for their honeymoon? Enough is enough! Mukesh sir, please stop.” One can almost imagine Mishi standing on her rooftop, shaking her fist at the sky, pleading for the madness to end.

But not everyone agreed with Mishi’s dramatic monologue. Actor Saba Faisal jumped into the fray, defending the Ambanis’ right to celebrate however they see fit. “Let those who are enjoying their lives do so. They are spending their own money on their happiness,” she said.

Mishi, not one to back down, responded with equal fervour, clarifying that her opinions were her own and not some sort of paid promotion. “Yes, I do enjoy the joys of people, this is my personal thought which I am sharing, it’s not a paid promotion,” she said.

Netizens, ever eager to pick sides, flocked to the comments section of the posts to declare their allegiances. In Mishi’s corner, one user wrote, “Mishi is right. This is insanity. There’s a limit to showing off wealth.” Another chimed in, “Mishi’s saying the right thing. The entire time we’re looking at how much this bag costs and how much their clothes cost. Their watches and cars. I’m fed up.” It seems Mishi’s supporters are equally exhausted by the relentless parade of wealth.

On the flip side, Saba’s defenders were equally vocal. “I agree with Saba. Look at your own house and then talk about others. Let them enjoy,” said one user, while another added, “If you see it then enjoy, otherwise scroll past it and move on.” The message here? Live and let live, and perhaps consider the scroll function next time something irks you.

As if the drama between Mishi and Saba wasn’t enough, actor Zoya Nasir also decided to throw her hat into the ring. She shared some stunning photographs of the Ambani family from their pre-wedding ceremonies on Instagram, adding her critical stance: “Haven’t seen such a vulgar display of wealth. Yes, you have hard-earned money and you wanna celebrate and show the world. But this does not look like a beloved son’s celebration to me.”

Naturally, Zoya’s opinion sparked yet another round of heated debate in the comment section. Some applauded her for speaking out, while others suggested she “mind your own business.”

So, which side is right in this saga? Is it the camp of those who believe in minding their own business and letting people enjoy their wealth as they please? Or is it the camp of those who are bitter about such extravagant displays and feel compelled to call them out? The jury’s still out, but one thing’s for sure: the Ambani wedding has given everyone plenty to talk about—whether they like it or not.
