Here’s The Truth To Rumors That Mehwish Hayat Is Playing Benazir Bhutto In An Upcoming Film

By Iman Zia | 27 Jan, 2018

Rumors are brewing that actress Mehwish Hayat might be dipping her toes into a biopic. The actress has endlessly proven her acting abilities, raising the bar for contemporary artists, in particular with drama ‘Dil Lagi,’  that left both audiences and critics in reverence. Her films ‘Actor In Law’ and ‘Punjab Nahi Jaungi’ might have been critically panned, but her acting was lauded.

 

The actress took to Instagram to post a screenshot of publication ‘Something Haute’s’ article

The article suggested Mehwish would be the perfect actress to play Benazir Bhutto if a biopic were ever to be made in Pakistani cinema. It correctly suggested the uncanny resemblance between the actress and the politician, and stated Mehwish’s suiting to more than her acting talent; rather the fact that Mehwish is never one to shy away from speaking her mind on social issues. The actress said ‘it would be an honor to play her onscreen and bring her wonderful journey to the world.’

 

What immediately followed were various publications who took to Facebook to state that the actress was, in fact playing Benazir in an upcoming biopic

There is also growing consensus that Saba Qamar would be better suited to play the late politician if a film were ever to be made

Saba won over hearts after her daring role on drama ‘Baaghi,’ loosely based on contentious media star Qandeel Baloch’s life, and on critically acclaimed Bollywood film ‘Hindi Medium’ that earned the actress her first Filmfare Nomination.
