Benazir Bhutto’s niece may act in Indian film
Former Pakistani premier Benazir Bhutto’s niece Fatima Bhutto may soon take up a role in a bilingual docu-drama by an Indian filmmaker. Fatima has been approached by documentary filmmaker Ahsan Hyder for his film Breaking Free, which is likely to be shot in New Delhi, New York and New Zealand.
If Fatima gives her nod, she will star opposite Bollywood star Emraan Hashmi, who was recently in Pakistan to promote his film Jannat. Fatima, who has found a place in the Independent newspaper’s list of promising writers, returned to Pakistan last month after sealing a deal with a UK-based publisher to write a book on the Bhutto clan.
Fatima and her stepmother Ghinwa have often hinted that they believe Benazir or her widower Asif Ali Zardari had a hand in the killing of her father Murtaza Bhutto. The book, according to the publishing house, will also be an investigation into whether that was the case.
