Entertainment Desk August 04, 2015

The recent poster of Manto -- the anticipated biopic on controversial writer Saadat Hassan Manto -- shows Mahira Khan in a never-seen-before avatar.

The actress, who is rocking the silver screen these days with Bin Roye, can be seen sporting a mustache with gelled back hair.

Although, Mahira Khan's name was not revealed earlier by director Sarmad Khoosat -- who will be portraying the enigmatic writer himself in the biopic -- when he mentioned the cast to The Express Tribune, it is now being said that the actress will be playing a madari's (monkey master) role in the upcoming film.
