Biopic on Ali Saleem, Pakistani television personality is in works, according to report by IANS. Saleem is an actor, television host, scriptwriter and impressionist who gained immense fame through their impersonations of late Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Their portrayal of cross-dressing Begum Nawazish Ali on various TV channels was also widely recognised.

Deepak Pandey, CEO of EORTV announced biopic, expressing desire to cast Mallika Sherawat for role. “This is strong story, story of boldness and courage. Character is multifaceted and needed someone as courageous and undaunted as Begum thyself. I am planning to approach Mallika Sherawat for this role as she would be apt for fearless performance like this,” Pandey said. He added that it is important to create stories like this that encourage people to be open about their sexuality and preferences.
