- The Guptas are set to host two lavish weddings next week and the ceremonies are said to outshine the controversial Sun City wedding of Vega Gupta
- The ceremonies reportedly cost a whopping R427 million
- Some of the most insane expenses include 200 helicopters, 400 different food options and imported flowers from Switzerland
Briefly.co.za previously reported that the controversial Gupta family is set to hold two opulent weddings which would take place from 18 June to 24 June.
It has now been reported that the affair will set the brothers back R427 million. According to The South African, Ajay's son, Suryakant Gupta's wedding will take place from 18 to 20 June.
Shashank – Atul’s son - will have his wedding on 22 June, with the celebrations continuing until 24 June.
According to the Indian media, the weddings will cost R427 million - which is 14 times more than the controversial Sun City wedding they had in 2017. The Mzansi wedding of Vega Gupta sparked an avalanche of political backlash.
However, it seems as though the Indian billionaires' previous experience with using taxpayers' money to party will not put a dampener on their upcoming festivities.
A look at the most insane expenses for the R427 million weddings:
Local, local, local
A massive sum of the expenses is due to the venue the Guptas' chose to host the weddings.
According to reports, the Guptas rented out an entire luxury ski resort situated high up in the Himalayan mountains in their home country.
The venue is located about three kilometres above sea level and unless all the Gupta family members and friends are avid mountain climbers, they're going to need transport.
But, just leave it to the Guptas to make a plan - they're reportedly going to use about 200 helicopters to transport the guests to the venue. They have also splashed out millions on ferries, which would be used to get guests from lower ground to the heights of Auli.
At a Gupta wedding you don't get what you're served, you have options baba. The Guptas reportedly have 400 different options available on their menu.
The invites were reportedly delivered in silver boxes weighing about five kilograms each.
Apparently India's flowers aren't good enough so the Guptas opted to import fine flowers from Switzerland.
Reports indicated the flowers came with a bill for “tens of thousands” of plant pots.
