More than 200 planes were reportedly chartered to bring the guests to the venue while the hosts had BMW cars flown in from Mumbai.

Jennifer is thought to have stayed in a £3,000-a-night luxury suite and Nicole was gifted a sari, a traditional Asian garment, and seemed delighted with the present.


She shared a picture of herself wearing the garment and caption the image: "Thankyou for my beautiful #Sari... (sic)"

Alongside another photograph of her posing next to some flowers, she added: "So blessed to perform here. #teamscherzy (sic)"


It was Jennifer Lopez’s first time in India. It was not a big, public, banging outdoor concert in Delhi or Mumbai or Bangalore.

It was for a private performance on a glamorous, royal palace hotel island in Rajasthan.

Bollywood was there – but the presence of J Lo – performing to a bhanga beats for a bit; and the Pussycat Doll herself Nicole Scherizinger, who also performed.
