Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani was also present at the event.

"The Dhirubhai Ambani Square and the Jio World Centre fulfil the vision of a great son of India, who believed that India has the potential to achieve global excellence in every area of nation-building," said Nita Ambani as she dedicated the facility to the city.

Nita Ambani also invited nearly 2,000 underprivileged children from various NGOs supported by Reliance Foundation to make them experience a Musical Fountain Show at the square.

"When the Jio World Centre opens towards the end of this year, it will be a place where people will get together, to appreciate art, to exchange ideas, to celebrate culture, and to soak in the heritage and vibrancy of our great city!" she added.

According to News18, the Ambanis also started Wednesday a week-long food service programme called Anna Seva in all orphanages and old age homes in Mumbai to begin the celebrations of the upcoming wedding of Akash Ambani with Shloka Mehta.

The programme will be followed by continuation of supply of groceries to all the orphanages and old age homes in the city for a year.
