Rihanna dances to ‘Zingaat’ with Janhvi Kapoor ‘Dhadak’ actor calls her a ‘goddess’ – watch video


In a dazzling display of cross-cultural celebration, Bollywood’s rising talent Janhvi Kapoor, found herself sharing the dance floor with none other than global music icon Rihanna during the glittering pre-wedding festivities of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant. The two stars twerked and shimmied to the upbeat rhythms of the hit track ‘Zingaat’, setting social media abuzz with their unexpected dance-off.

The grand event, held in Jamnagar, Gujarat, was a melange of business magnates, celebrities, and performers, all gathered to celebrate the union of the Ambani scion and his fiancée. However, it was the Instagram video, shared by Janhvi Kapoor herself, that stole the spotlight, showcasing the Indian actress and the Barbadian singer in a spontaneous ‘twerk-off’.

Clad in a sparkling silver metallic mini dress, Janhvi Kapoor was the embodiment of Bollywood glamour. Beside her, Rihanna exuded elegance in a peach gown with dramatic headgear and a revealing thigh-high slit. The infectious energy of their dance to ‘Zingaat’ effortlessly conveyed the joy and opulence of the occasion.

Janhvi Kapoor, clearly awestruck by the global phenomenon Rihanna, expressed her admiration in the video caption, calling Rihanna a “goddess”, followed by a poignant “stop it goodbye.”

The celebration, themed ‘An Evening in Everland at the Conservatory’, commenced at 5:30 pm, and featured a dress code of ‘Elegant Cocktail’. Following a warm reception, including welcome speeches from the Ambani family, the event unfolded into a series of extraordinary experiences.

Guests witnessed ‘Cirque De Soleil’, an astounding array of energetic performances, and were treated to the ‘Vantara Show’, which invited them to marvel at the beauty of the animal kingdom. The night sky was then brought to life with an innovative ‘Drone Show’, described by one official release as a “never seen before dazzling display”.

Furthermore, the highlight for many was the special performance by pop queen Rihanna, whom sources from MailOnline revealed commanded a staggering performance fee of USD 5 million, approximately Rs 41.4 crore. Her magnetic stage presence, coupled with the aforementioned viral dance with Janhvi Kapoor, ensured the evening was one for the books.

In a rare candid interaction with photographers, Rihanna, fresh off her first public performance in nearly eight years, declared her love for India and her desire to return, stating, “The show was the best. I want to come back.”

Janhvi Kapoor, meanwhile, stands on the cusp of adding notable entries to her own resume, with forthcoming roles in ‘Mr and Mrs Maahi’ – a sports drama featuring alongside actor Rajkummar Rao – marking their second cinematic venture after ‘Roohi’. Directed by Sharan Sharma of ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’ fame, Kapoor’s career trajectory appears ever ascending. Additionally, she is set to appear in the Pan-India film ‘Devara’ alongside noteworthy names such as Jr NTR and Saif Ali Khan.

The creative intersections of these diverse artists, manifested in that joyful dance moment, not only underscore the universal language of music and dance but also highlight how mega-events like the Ambani pre-wedding celebration serve as unique platforms for cross-pollination of global cultures.

The Instagram video, now viral, afforded millions a virtual front-row seat to this exclusive gathering, which, due to the star power of both Janhvi Kapoor and Rihanna, will likely be remembered as an iconic moment where Bollywood and international pop music met with jubilant harmony.
