Vidya Balan has been offered to play the role of the assassinated Benazir Bhutto in an upcoming Bollywood venture. Vidya has played some exceptional roles in the past few years. Her acting performance has convinced the Bollywood directors of her potential and versatility in acting. She was recognized for her roles in the movie ‘Dirty Picture’ and ‘Ishqia’. She is now busy making her upcoming movie ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’.
India had banned a film Kaum De Heere based on the assassination of the late Indian Prime Minister ‘Indra Gandhi’ in the early 2014. The movie on the assassination of Benazir Bhutto is also a controversial topic. Benazir Bhutto was the first female prime Minister of Pakistan in 1988 after the death of the former President General Zia-ul-Haq.
Benazir Bhutto was assassinated on December 27 in Rawalpindi during her address at the Liaquat Bagh Park. While the Indian directors approach Vidya Balan for the role, it is left to be seen, how the Indian public and the government will react to this movie.
