She said this in a tweet on Friday, termed it “unacceptable” and vowed to take action against it.

Actor in Law actress Mehwish Hayat paying tribute to former prime minister late Benazir Bhutto on her 65th Birthday has confirmed to portray the role of Benazir Bhutto.

In a recent Instagram post the starlet confirms that she’s gearing up for the role of a lifetime.

“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 actress wrote in her Instagram post.

The ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Aani’ actress further said that she is honoured to be given the opportunity to learn about the late Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader.

"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
