Bakhtawar, Mahmood Chaudhry get engaged

Karachi: Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari, late Benazir Bhutto and former president Asif Ali Zardari’s eldest daughter, on Friday exchanged the rings with her fiancé Mahmood Chaudhry as the city’s prominent names — including politicians, business tycoons, and lawyers — at the engagement ceremony at the Bilawal House.

Held in the open area of Bilawal House Karachi, Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari’s engagement ceremony was without the presence of her brother and PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto, who is quarantined after testing positive for the COVID-19.

According to sources, at least 100-150 guests attended Bakhtawar’s engagement ceremony, with Zardari also in attendance. The former president reached the venue from the hospitals after his doctors gave the go-ahead.

There were more than a dozen family members of Mahmood Chaudhry at the event, with some Pakistani business magnates among the more than 100 guests as well.

Also among the guests at Bakhtawar’s engagement were PPP Senator Sherry Rehman, former law minister and Zardari’s legal counsel, Farooq H. Naek, and Omni Group Chief Executive Anwar Majeed.
