The former president made a brief appearance at the ceremony since he is currently under treatment, as quoted by several media outlets.
Earlier, on Friday morning, Bakhtawar released an emotional message on Twitter ahead of her engagement ceremony scheduled today.
She expressed gratitude to the people for sending her felicitation and warm wishes. The daughter of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto hinted at an intimate ceremony with few people in attendance.

Social media frenzy
The images of Mahmood Chaudhry will finally put to rest the speculations about him rife on social media. Earlier, before the engagement, his fake images and information circulated on social media.
On Thursday, Bakhtawar Bhutto negated the authenticity of videos of her engagement ceremony circulating on social media.

Bakhtawar took to Twitter to categorically debunk the authenticity of a video shared by an internet user, associating it with her engagement ceremony.
“These are not my videos nor have anything to do with me. If reading isn’t your specialty (clearly says 27th on the leaked cards), then perhaps basic vision will allow you to see Bakhtawar is not in any of these videos, neither are her very identifiable family members,” wrote Bakhtawar in a tweet.
In the past two days, a video from an unknown source circulated on social media. The video was from a wedding function, showing people dancing to the songs. A score of other PPP leaders has also denied the fake video. Perhaps, it was a clickbait video to gain attention on social media.
Then it was reportedly rumored that Chaudhary was an Ahmadi; later on, PPP had to deny the false information circulating on social media.
