Talks of Mehwish Hayat playing Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto (late) aka Bibi in a biopic rose when Tamgha-i-Imtiaz winner Mehwish Hayat was asked about her role.
The late Pakistan Prime Minister was the first woman to head a democratic government in a Muslim majority nation.
She held the post from 1988 to 1990 and again from 1993 to 1996 before being assassinated just after addressing a public rally.
Many thought Mehwish was a great pick for the role, considering how well she has performed in her past few movies (Load Wedding, Actor in Law for e.g.).
However, the daughter of Pakistan’s only female Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto doesn’t quite agree.
