Benazir Bhutto, a Pakistani politician, served as Prime Minister of Pakistan from 1988 to 1990 and again from 1993 to 1996. She was assassinated on December 27, 2007, in Pakistan. She was an inspiration to millions in Pakistan and abroad for standing up to tyranny. A movie about her life would be appreciated by all audiences regardless of political affinities.
