CAPE TOWN - A Huisgenoot and _You Magazine _reporter says Sun City is being transformed into a Bollywood dreamland as one of the country's wealthiest family's daughters is getting married.

Vega Gupta will be tying the knot at Sun City's super bowl on Thursday with celebrations expected to continue throughout the weekend.

Tongues are wagging over an airbus transporting wedding guests that was given permission to land at the Waterkloof Air Force base in Pretoria on Tuesday.

The privately chartered flight took off from New Delhi in India on Monday night.

However, Huisgenoot and _You Magazine _reporter Marina Fitzpatrick says the atmosphere is magical at the Pilanesberg Resort ahead of the big day.

"Staff that has been working at the resort for years says they have never seen anything like this. I myself have never seen anything close to this. It's absolutely jaw dropping."

Fitzpatrick says the hundreds of guests appear to be oblivious to the aeroplane debacle as they are revelling at the valley of the waves.

"Today the theme is a beach party so everybody is on the beach. There are colourful tents all over the place, where guests are lounging in large sheets."
