PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif’s grandson tied the knot in London
The highly-anticipated Nikkah ceremony of PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif’s grandson, Junaid Safdar, was held with full pomp and splendour in London, on Sunday. The son of Maryam Nawaz and Captain Muhammad Safdar Awan tied the knot with Ayesha Saif Khan at The Lanesborough, an elite five-star hotel on the Hyde Park Corner in Knightsbridge.
Ayesha is the daughter of the PML-N chief’s close aid Saifur Rahman Khan. Junaid donned a tuxedo from an undisclosed designer, looking dapper with slicked-back hair, while his ladylove stunned in a pink and gold Sabyasachi bridal lehenga. She chose to wear her hair in a neat bun and accessorised the outfit with traditional gold jewellery.
The wedding ceremony was attended by Nawaz Sharif and Ishaq Dar, both of whom sat right next to the groom on stage during the Nikkah. Ali Dar, son of Ishaq Dar, posted a picture with the groom on Twitter. He wrote, “Beyond the good looks there lies a heart of gold MashaAllah. Here’s to an eternally blissful life ahead. Khush raho, aabaad raho hamesha [Stay happy and prosperous always].” The wedding was also attended by Shahbaz Sharif’s son Suleman and his wife.
Maryam Nawaz and Captain Safdar did not attend the wedding and were instead present at the function through video call. She tweeted out pictures of Junaid and Ayesha from the ceremony, writing “Allah hamesha khush aur aabaad rakhey [May God always keep you happy and prosperous.
