In an Instagram post today, Hayat confirms that she is gearing up to fill the shoes of the deceased Pakistani leader in an upcoming biopic.

Hayat started out the with a famous saying of the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, writing;

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.

With a Benazir Bhutto’s book in her lap, the actress 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. 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.

She then went on to confirm that a biopic on the late leader is in the works and that she is privileged to have been given the opportunity to fill in the role.

Mehwish Hayat is currently researching on the life of Benazir Bhutto and will try to accurately portray her personality in the upcoming project.
