Smile Pinki won an Oscar is a 39 minute short film in Hindi and Bhojpuri directed by Emmy producer Megan Mylan which also made us equally proud . Smile Pinki is a story of  a six-year-old girl named Pinki living in Dabai village of Uttar Pradesh who cannot go to school because of her cleft lips. Documentary traces Pinki’s journey from being ostracized to being treated like a normal girl after a social worker Pankaj helped her undergo free surgery.
