Aamir Liaquat to essay Burhan Wani in debut film
Pakistani TV personality and politician Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain said on Friday that he would play freedom fighter Burhan Wani in his upcoming debut flick.
In case you think this is satire or something, it’s not. Dr Aamir Liaquat is indeed making his debut in a Pakistani movie.
He’s going to be playing slain Kashmiri freedom fighter Burhan Wani. The PTI leader revealed this himself by appearing on SAMAA TV’s morning show Naya Din.
“I will be playing Burhan Wani,” said Dr Aamir Liaquat. “I’m not the hero. Burhan Wani shaheed is. I will just be playing him,” he added.
Ayub Khoso, who is making the film, said that this would be a movie on the genuine issues of Kashmir.
“We won’t have a heroine who falls in love with the freedom fighter,” he said. “This will be an action-based movie and we will portray Burhan Wani as he desrves to be portrayed,” he added.
Burhan Muzaffar Wani, a young Kashmir fighter of Hizbul Majahideen group, died in an encounter with the Indian army in Kokernag in July, 2016.
