Rukhsana, the acid attack victim which was a main character in Oscar winning “Saving Face” movie, describes how her miseries were exploited by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, who was the film-maker.
She claims that ”Her miseries have aggravated in the aftermath of the movie, that she has been left alone contrary to promises and assurances by the film makes and producers.”
Promises by Sharmeen Obaid to Rukhsana:
3 million rupees, construction of house on 5 marla plot in Multan, plastic surgery.
None of the above promises were fulfilled. Instead, Sharmeen bribed the Acid Survivors Association so that they refrain from supporting Rukhsana’s legal case against her.
Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, is an Emmy and Oscar award-winning Pakistani-Canadian journalist and documentary filmmaker. She won an Emmy for her documentary, Pakistan: Children of the Taliban in 2010. She is also the first non-American to win the Livingston Award for Young Journalists.
