You will burst into laugher, before your stomach hurts like hell. Most people questioned the PTI's chief's priorities ahead of elections and the marriage with Bushra fulfilled his priority.

You can understand this feeling, which is portrayed exactly by a Twitterer, where a picture shows a young Imran, who is seeing a groom.

A picture showed Bushra covering her face entirely with a veil, we all want to know 'pardey ke peechey kya hai' (What is behind those "curtains")!
