Islamabad,jan.8 : Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan’s wedding will be a low-key affair, a Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) party’s official said on Thursday.
PTI’s Shireen Mazari dismissed reports that the wedding would be a fundraising event for the chairman’s Shaukat Khanum Cancer Memorial Hospital in Lahore, Dawn online reported.As far as I know, it is an extremely private affair. There are no such ticketed cards and no grand function.
Imran is in no mood to celebrate after the Peshawar tragedy.Notwithstanding Reham’s expected new stint in Pakistani politics, commentators have warned the marriage can also mean a loss of support for Imran among the country’s female voters.
The 62-year-old cricketer-turned-politician married Jemima Goldsmith in 1995, but divorced her after nine years and since then he has spent most of his time building his political career and his party.
He has two sons from her who live with their mother in London. Imran had gone to London reportedly to consult his marriage plan with his two sons who live with Jemima.
Jemima has said she was ditching the surname ‘Khan’ and reverting to her family name because her ex-husband was about to remarry.
