Mehwish Hayat as Benazir Bhutto
Mehwish Hayat tops the list when we talk about the best actors in Pakistan’s revived film industry. With her stellar acting and looks, this ravishing beauty has won hearts across all spheres. She was immensely praised in her last films Mein Punjab Nahi Jaongi and Actor in Law.
Hayat adds another prestigious project in her kitty as she is all set to play Benazir Bhutto in her first biopic.
Her acting has always made us praise her, this time we cannot wait to see her get into the shoes of PPP leader, Benazir Bhutto. In her recent Instagram post, Hayat confirms that she’s going to star in Muhtarma Benazir Bhutto’s biopic and she is all ready for the role of a lifetime.
Hayat is holding Benazir Bhutto’s book in her lap in the picture and she quotes her in the caption, “We have broken glass ceilings, we have broken the stereotypes, and we have been and continue to be prepared to go the extra mile, to be judged by unrealistic standards, to be held more accountable.”
She further said, “Today would have been Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto’s 65th birthday. It is an ideal time to reflect on her undoubted achievements.”
Formerly, she shared a picture of a publication on Instagram, in which the writer had suggested her to play the role of the PPP leader.
She continued “We have broken glass ceilings, we have broken the stereotypes, and we have been and continue to be prepared to go the extra mile, to be judged by unrealistic standards, to be held more accountable.” Today would have been Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto’s 65th birthday. It is an ideal time to reflect on her undoubted achievements. I have never really been a political person but leaving that aside there is no denying the great strides she made for women’s empowerment and equality in our country – everything we are still fighting for even today. There was a time when she made women believe that almost anything was possible – she gave us hope and inspired us to reach for the stars. I am privileged to have been given the opportunity to research and learn more about her life and sitting here I can only reflect on so much more that could have been had she not lost her life so tragically. The sign of a true leader is the legacy they leave behind and the reverence with which the people remember her irrespective of party allegiances. She was a truly remarkable woman and I look forward to giving life to her story soon” (Quote Source: Mehwish Hayat Instagram)
