The lunch table stretched 550 feet and was designed in the shape of a curve. To enhance the look of the table, around 55 canopies were fabricated with translucent drapes. The event witnessed 500 people such as theatre personalities Divya Palat and Aditya Hitkari, pop singer Suneeta Rao, and business tycoon Adar Poonawala, to name a few.
