The hotel where the artists will stay is curating a special vegetarian spread for the health-conscious Derulo that includes paneer makhani, Hyderabadi biryani, chole bhature, and idli dosa. Wiz, on the other hand, will be treated to Goa food prepared by Chef Rego.

Special security forces, who were there for the Justin Bieber concert in Mumbai, will be flown in from Dubai for Wiz and Derulo.
