What happens when the daughter of an assassinated former prime minister and a former president is all set to tie the knot? Chatter, chatter and lots of chatter.

As invitations for Bakhtawar Bhutto-Zardari's engagement ceremony floated across social media and news outlets, many started speculating intricate details about the newest member about to be associated with the famous political dynasty.

Who is the fiancé? What does he do? How was the marriage arranged? Pakistanis couldn't help but speculate, sharing unverified photos and information about Bakhtawar's soon-to-be husband.

Amidst the concocted stories, the Pakistan Peoples Party decided to put an end to the rumours and clarify "all the misinformation being shared on social and electronic media".

Here's everything you need to know about Bakhtawar's beau.

"Mahmood Choudhry is the son of Mohammad Younas and Begum Suraiya Choudhry who hail from the old town of Lahore, Pakistan. Mr Younas migrated to the United Arab Emirates in 1973 where through hard-work he established businesses in the construction and transport industry," the formal announcement read.

The party also revealed that Mahmood, Bakhtawar's fiancé, was the last born of 5 siblings and born in the city of Abu Dhabi on July 28, 1988 (which makes him 32 years old).

"He completed his primary schooling in Abu Dhabi and secondary schooling in the United Kingdom. Mahmood further went on to study law at the University of Durham."

Choudhry's country of residence will remain the UAE, where he runs businesses in construction, finance and tech, the party confirmed.

On his Instagram, Choudhry refers to himself as a lawyer, contractor and tech VC who "loves polo, cricket and rugby".

Grateful for the love and wishes, the 30-year-old also cleared the air, revealing that the invites were leaked even before they were officially sent out.

"Thank you everyone for the good wishes. Unfortunately the cards were leaked before even scheduled to be officially sent!" Bakhtawar posted.

"Have absolutely NO affiliation with any family in the US which is being popularly quoted by most media. Hope this clears up all misinformation."

We'll make do with the bio until the engagement, scheduled for Nov 27, when we're hoping to get a glimpse of him!
