Motwane Entertainment

Motwane Entertainment is another big name, having done over 54 luxury weddings in India and abroad. They only do high profile weddings or Bollywood wedding, so it’s no surprise that they’ve gotten credit for some really loaded clients like Zaheer Khan, The Hindujas, the Grovers and have even done events for Manish Malhotra.
