The party will be held at Ambani's residence in Colaba and several celebrities from Bollywood are invited.
According to the Times of India, Spielberg is expected to meet around 400 members of the Indian film industry besides the top-league producers, directors and actors. Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Rajkumar Hirani are among the others who are in the exclusives guest list.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who shares a great friendship with the Ambanis, is also expected to turn up at the event.
