Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy – the woman who shocked not only the United States of America but the entire world by winning an Academy Award for Best Documentary (Short Subject) – has been drowned in a flood of controversy due to an alleged unfulfilled promise. Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, alongside by Daniel Judge, directed a documentary about the acid attacks on women titled, ‘Saving Face’. The hot buzz surrounding the talented journalist and documentary filmmaker is that one of her hired staff has furiously revealed an unfulfilled promise by Sharmeen.
Rukhsana Bibi has revealed that she was offered a plastic surgery, a five-marla house and a financial aid of Rs 3,000,000 by Sharmeen in exchange for appearing in her documentary for her narratives. On top of all, she was kicked out of her home for appearing in the film; leaving her and her children without any shelter or safety.
The proud Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy has stated that she never made any such promise to the acid victim. To make matters worse, plastic surgeon Dr Mohammad Jawwad, who came to Pakistan to perform the surgery on Rukhsana Bibi, was unable to perform the surgery because she declined the offer. Whether the alligations are true or not, it is a sad spectacle to see the poor victim helpless with the responsibility of children.
