The film, directed by American filmmaker Megan Mylan, won the Best Short Documentary Award at the Oscars.
Smile Pinki is a tale of a poor Indian village girl who has been left out from the social circle because of her cleft. How her life changes for the good after undergoing a lip surgery forms the crux of the film.
The young protagonist Pinki was present at the gala event along with her father and post the event, the father-daughter duo were seen grinning from ear to ear. Must say..this Pinki did smile at the Oscars
