“We are feeling proud to be associated with Marwah Studios and thankful for providing their facilities for this Oscar Winning film” said Megan Mylan, the director of the film Smile Pinki. “I would love to be present and part of Global Festival of Documentary Films 2009” she added. “The shooting arrangements at Marwah Studios are no less than any Hollywood studios” said Dr. Subodh Kumar.
The film is about eight year young girl Pinki Kumari who is living with a severe cleft lip in one of the poorest areas of India. Not allowed to attend school at her native village, and ostracized because of her deformity, Pinki lives a life of quiet desperation as she waits and wonders if she will ever receive the cleft surgery. Her parents could never afford the surgery that she desperately needs. By chance, Pinki's parents meet a social worker one day who is traveling village to village, gathering patients for a hospital that provides free cleft lip surgery to thousands of poor children each year through the The Smile Train program. The surgery was performed by plastic surgeon Dr Subodh Kumar Singh, who along with Pinki attended the 81st Academy Award ceremony.
