Bollywood biggies Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor will be seen in the South African city of Durban, this weekend, matching steps to some of their Hindi film numbers to commemorate 150 years of alliance between countries India and South Africa. But it is not only Bollywood that will celebrate the auspicious occasion this Sunday. To be present in Durban along with Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor are some well known faces from the world of cricket and famous artistes from South Africa.

The beginning of the 150 years of the India – South Africa relationship can be traced back to 1860, when the Indian laborers first set foot on South African soil to work in sugarcane plantations across the country. In a statement to the media, Sabbas Joseph, the director of Wizcraft International Entertainment, which is one of the sponsors of the event, said that the ties between India and South Africa are very strong not only historically but also in modern times. Wizcraft stresses that he has played an important role in acquainting the South African people to the Indian entertainment world. It is to be remembered that two editions of IIFA film awards were held in South Africa, a venture by Wizcraft International Entertainment.

While SRK, Piggy Chops and Shahid will be the star attractions of the event, the organizers have also planned to felicitate cricket stalwarts Sachin Tendulkar and Makhaya Ntini, both representatives of the Indian and South African cricket worlds respectively, at the event. Actor Anil Kapoor will be the host for the evening which will see performances by South African musicians like Drum Café, Locnville and Liquideep.
