MUMBAI: The Jio World Centre in Mumbai's Bandra-Kurla Complex will now be home to the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre (NMACC), which will become the most sought-after arena to display the best of Indian art and culture to the globe and draw attention to India.

Speaking on the occasion, Nita Ambani said, "Bringing this cultural centre to life has been a sacred journey. We were keen to create a space for both promoting and celebrating our artistic and cultural heritage in cinema and music, in dance and drama, in literature and folklore, in arts and crafts and in science and spirituality. It is a space where we will showcase the best of India to the world and welcome the best of the world to India."
NMACC was born when Isha Ambani, CEO of Reliance Retail had announced it's opening in October 2022 as a tribute to her mother's love of culture.
NMACC is Nita Ambani's vision of a better international destination for Indian artists, performers, and creators than what is currently offered in the US or Europe.

The largest of them will have a 2,000-seat Grand Theatre and a stunning chandelier with 8,400 Swarovski crystals in the shape of a lotus.
