There will also be stalls for guests to shop.
Day 2: Maroon 5 to perform at Akash's bachelor bash
The second day will be the same, sans the drone show and ice skating.
As per reports, after a lavish lunch that will take place from 12.30pm to 4pm, the guests will head towards the fair and stalls for shopping that will open from 6pm to 8pm.
This will be followed by an exclusive live performance by American popular pop band Maroon 5.
