The Punjab Nahi Jaungi actress Mehwish Hayat recently took the social media by storm when she announced that she will be donning the role of the slain PPP leader and people just could not hold their excitement.

The starlet took to her Instagram account and shared this huge news.

The actress posted the picture of herself while reading the book Daughter Of The East with the caption: 

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

"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

However, the daughter of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto was not really happy with the news and said that no consent from the family was taken by the makers.

Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari took to her Twitter account and said: 

Certainly no consent from her living heirs/children was sought. Absolutely unacceptable and we will be taking action against it,” Bakhtwar wrote on Twitter, sharing the news report.

Mehwish Hayat quickly responded to Bakhtawar and tweeted: 

To clarify rumors 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 further said: 

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,” Hayat further wrote.
