The Vanisha Mittal Divorce

The Vanisha Mittal divorce shocked the world for a number of reasons. Recently there has been a media frenzy over the couple’s parting and both families have been put in the public spotlight. Here we’ll discuss why the divorce is worth so much attention.

 In 2004, Vanisha Mittal and Amit Bhatia were happily married. At the time, Vanisha’s father was estimate to be worth 50 billion dollars. He spared no expense on his daughter’s union, spending about $78 million on the wedding alone. The wedding was held in Paris and lasted for several days. It was an extremely extravagant affair, and rated one of the most costly weddings of all time. It was also rated one of the largest parties that Paris had ever seen.

When someone throws a $78 million dollar investment into a simple wedding, you’d expect that the couple would at least never separate. However, Vanisha and Mittal are divorcing, which sees all that money going down the drain. As much as he loves his daughter, he certainly cannot be happy seeing so much money disappear for no reason. Even for someone who is worth billions of dollars, $78 million is still a very large sum.

To make matters worse, the wedding was a very public spectacle that was broadcasted in not only India, but also Europe and the rest of the world. When news of the divorce hit, it became a public embarrassment for the family. Amit is actually working for Vanisha’s father as an investment banker, so the divorce will likely make his workplace quite awkward in the coming months.
