Jemima, you are also a Jadugarni!

Jemima Goldsmith, the ex-wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan, has made her Pakistani fans go crazy with a hilarious tweet that featured a poster depicting Khan, his present wife Bushra Maneka and herself.

Through the tweet, she not only proved her knack with the words but also the point that she can take a joke even if it involved her.

“Who doesn’t love a Lollywood poster? Spotted today by a friend in Lahore…,” she wrote, captioning the poster, “what kind of black magic did you do?”

The funny poster played on Pakistan’s First Lady’s deep devotion to religion and spiritualism – which sometimes makes her haters to even dub her as a sorceress.

(Note: the above tweet has been deleted by Jemima for some unexplained reason.)

Jemima, who has stood with Khan through thick and thin even after their divorce, made it clear with a postscript that she intended no disrespect.

“Ps. No disrespect intended. Like most of you, I just found it funny. (Plus im a genuine fan of Pakistani film posters, street art & truck art.)”

Bushra Maneka, also known as Bushra Bibi and called Pinky by her close family and friends, is the third wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Jemima is the mother of Khan’s two sons, Sulaiman Isa (born 1996) and Kasim (born 1999), who live in Britain with her and occasionally visit Pakistan to meet their father.

Mis Goldsmith married Imran Khan, the cricket star and philanthropist, in June 1995 and she relocated to Khan's hometown, Lahore. During her four years stay in Pakistan, Jemima Khan learned to speak Urdu and mostly wore traditional Pakistani dresses.

She left Pakistan in 1999 and separated with Khan in June 2004. It had become too difficult for her to adapt to the political life of Imran Khan in Pakistan - which obviously was too demanding.

Despite their divorce, which was sealed with the consensus of the couple, they have always maintained a very friendly relationship.

And, the British woman is so much loved by Pakistanis that after Khan’s second marriage with Reham Khan came to a close, many of their fans wished her to come back together with the prime minister.

Personal note to Jemima: Hey golden girl, you are also a jadugarni [magician]. We love you more and more!
