The story of an 80-year-old billionaire who is single and childless and has chosen to give his money to his gardener has been making the rounds on social media lately.
The reclusive fifth-generation descendant of Thierry Hermès, the man who started Hermès in 1837, is Nicolas Puech.
The news claims that Nicolas Puech has made the unexpected choice to name his 51-year-old gardener as his legal heir and to leave him half of his €12 billion (£10.3 billion) fortune.
The rest of his family is equally astounded by this choice. Additionally, he has halted a charity’s funding entirely. Nicholas has started the formal adoption process of the former gardener without a name.
Pakistani social media users are drawing comparisons between this scenario and the storyline of the well-known drama Parizaad. In addition to writing the lyrics of the Parizaad ost, people are tagging Ahmed Ali Akbar in posts.
In response to this intriguing real-life scenario that resembles Parizaad, fans are reacting, with some of them making hilarious comments.
While some fans expressed a wish to take care of the billionaire’s gardens as well, others expressed happiness for the gardener, stating that after years of service, the gardener most likely deserved to be rewarded. “It’s a real-life Parizaad situation,” a fan commented.
