KARACHI: The eldest daughter of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and former President Asif Ali Zardari, Bakhtawar Bhutto-Zardari, linked UAE-based businessman Mahmood Choudhry on Friday.
Bakhtawar’s nikah was held today, while barat is scheduled for tomorrow (January 30). Her wedding party started on January 24 in Bilawal House with a Mehfil-e-Milad.
During the nikah ceremony, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and his younger sister Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari received the guests, with the proud father Asif Ali Zardari also present at the occasion.
When he came to Twitter, Bilawal expressed his happiness and said it was the best time he had this year and he wished the best for the couple.
“The happiest moment in many years to see my sister @BakhtawarBZ get married. Felt like our mother was taking care of us in this moment of joy,” Bilawal said.
Two days earlier, an elegant henna ceremony was also held at Bilawal House, where Bakhtawar got a beautiful henna design of Ajrak applied on the hands.
Bakhtawar and Mahmood exchanged rings two months ago on November 27, 2020 in an intimate ceremony held at the Bilawal House, where a limited number of people were invited to the event.
PPP spokesman said PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has suspended his political activities for a week to attend his sister’s wedding.
According to PPP’s media cell, Dubai-based Choudhary is the son of Mohammad Younas Choudhary and Begum Suriya Choudhary and runs a diversified business. The family hails “from the old town of Lahore, Pakistan”.
