New Delhi: The cyberspace is abuzz with people commenting on the rumoured romance between Bilawal Bhutto, the 24-year-old scion of Pakistan's 'first' family, and Pakistan's foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar, the 35-year-old mother of two who is married to Firoze Gulzar, one of Pakistan's most influential businessmen.
While someone from Pakistan on Twitter suggested that if Hina actually got married to Bilawal, "here is what her name would be- Hina Rabbani Khar Bhutto Zardari," someone else opined that Hina Rabbani Khar be relieved of her current duties and be given a new portfolio of "Ministry of Love Affairs".
Another man from Pakistan thinks "Hina Rabbani Khar is a bad influence on poor boy Bilawal! May God Protect this boy and safeguard him!"
One other person, also from Pakistan, added a political twist to all this, saying, "I wonder if such a thing was done by Imran Khan, what would..."
Someone thought this was an entirely personal matter. He tweeted: "Should we care if Bilawal marries Hina, Alka, Laila or even a guy? Let his personal life, remain personal."
Not unlikely, the incident sparked off reactions on the other side of the border too, with people saying: "Asif Ali Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari & Hina Rabbani khar, That's Pakistani version of Mughal-e-Azam..."
Some wondered if this was "the making of Pakistan's version of Trojan War."
In Facebook, a handful of Indians have launched a community titled 'Indian Support for Hina Rabbani Khar and Bilawal Bhutto.'
So even if there is no basis to this rumour, the sheer prospect of such an occurrence has given the Twitteratti and Facebookers plenty to talk, chat and share about.
