Pakistani starlet, Mehwish Hayat paid a tribute to Benazir Bhutto on what would have been her 65th birthday on Thursday and perhaps revealed a little more than her heartfelt note that she penned down.
Taking to Instagram, Mehwish wrote about her fond admiration for the first female Prime Minister of Pakistan, while also hinting at playing her for a biopic.
“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. ☑️ #MH #MehwishHayat #lostinreality

She added, “I look forward to giving life to her story soon.”
Previously, Hayat took to Instagram to share a screenshot of a local publication’s article, in which the writer suggested Hayat to play the slain PPP leader.
