A YouTube clip, which could rival any high-end Bollywood music video, has afforded a peek into the five-day Gupta wedding which took place in February at one of the most luxurious hotels in the world. The Guptas are currently in a self-imposed exile but seem to be enjoying life despite being central to allegations of state capture.
A four-minute long teaser trailer briefly afforded the world a peek into the grand five-day Gupta wedding that took place in February at Abu Dhabi's Emirates Palace.
The wedding boasted not one but two weddings, with Rajesh Gupta's daughter Shubhangi Singhala marrying Chatan Jain and Atul Gupta's son Srikant Singhala wedding Akhya Bansal.
The clip, which was promptly removed, showed the extravagance of the affair boasting countless performers, luxury vehicles and over-the-top flower arrangements.
An invitation to the wedding, obtained by amaBhungane, described a lengthy document which began with a 'welcome lunch' and ended with a reception.
According to The Daily Maverick, R30 million had been laundered in order to pay for the wedding from the failed Estina dairy project which had been funded by the Free State government.
The latest lavish Gupta wedding was rumoured to have cost around R100 million and featured 14 events.
