Benazir Bhutto's daughter plans legal action against Benazir's biopic
Social media was abuzz recently when a Pakistani actress-singer Mehwish Hayat took to Instagram and hinted on the biopic of slain former PPP leader, Benazir Bhutto.
In no time the news spread quickly across the internet and Bhutto's daughter Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari took to Twitter and showed her objection. She said, “Certainly no consent from her living heirs/children was sought. Absolutely unacceptable and we will be taking action against it.”

As soon as Bakhtawar tweeted, to this Mehwish responded by a tweet, she wrote, “To clarify rumours circulating. There is a project at the very early stages of development about your amazing mother. This cannot and will not be done without the consent or blessing of the family. I am sure that the team involved will be in touch before they progress further,” She even wrote, "Meanwhile, as an actress, I am researching as much as I can about a real idol of mine. Irrespective of any film I would love to meet someday and learn more about her.”
@somethinghauteofficial made me smile this morning. Benazir is a true hero of mine, a real powerful woman and a inspiration for many millions around the world. Would be a privilege and honour to play her on screen and bring her wonderful journey, her inspirational story to the world ! 🌟 #MehwishHayat #BenazirBhutto #biopic #womanofstrength #Superwoman #myhero 💪
Previously Mehwish posted on her Instagram that she is gearing up for the role of a lifetime. She even wrote, "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.”
