Imran Khan responds to marriage wishes on Twitter

In the subcontinent, where weddings are huge events – multiday affairs with uncountable guests and food, Pakistani cricket legend Imran Khan remarried on Thursday in a low-key ceremony which was attended by a handful of friends.

Speculation of Imran’s wedding with television anchor Reham Khan was subject to a lot of criticism in Pakistan and his family disapproved it. On the New Years’Eve, Imran had said that reports of his marriage are exaggerated.

Imran tweeted thanking everyone and asked those wanting to send gift to donate to Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in Peshawar instead.

His tweet had been received with over 3300 re-tweets and almost 5000 add it to their favourites. On Tuesday, Imran’s ex-wife Jemima Goldsmith Khan, in a series of tweets expressed her love for Pakistan and wished Imran on his “new phase”.
