Lahore: Yes, you have read it right. After impressing the world with an Oscar-winning documentary ‘Saving Face’, the gifted filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy is all set to move ahead on another big project with none other than Academy Award winner Hollywood actress, Meryl Streep.
Chinoy excitedly announced it through a Facebook status.
Although much details about the project hasn’t been revealed yet but the mention of Faiz Ahmed Faiz and Meryl Streep in Facebook status has been quite enough in raising much hype about it.
Chinoy became the first Pakistani to win an Academy Award for her documentary Saving Face in 2012, and also 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.
