100 chartered flights for Beyonce, guests as Ambani daughter marries
U.S. singer Beyonce will perform at the wedding of the daughter of India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani, along with Bollywood stars, and guests will be flown in on 100 chartered flights in lavish marriage celebrations.
Isha Ambani, 27, will marry Anand Piramal, 33, in the financial capital of Mumbai on Tuesday, but the festivities begin this weekend in the desert city of Udaipur, with three days of song, dance and pre-wedding rituals.
Wedding guests have access to an app mapping out the activities, which include a private concert by Beyonce.
More than 100 chartered flights are landing in Udaipur’s sleepy airport, a source on the spot, who declined to be identified, told Reuters.
Bollywood stars, including Priyanka Chopra, who got married last week, will also attend.
Indian media have speculated that the guest list includes former U.S. President Bill Clinton, along with his wife and Democratic candidate in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton.
“The event will have many visitors from abroad, so customs and immigration counters have been set up at the airport and will remain active for the next five days,” the airport source said.
The source declined to say how much Beyonce was being paid for the concert and media have not reported a figure.
