Pinky Sonkar

Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh
Biography
Pinky Sonkar had her brush with the glitterati when she was all of nine years old, hardly what a girl ostracized by society for being born with a cleft lip expects.

Pinky was born to a labourer Rajendra Sonkar in a village near Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh, India. She was born with a cleft lip and lived with it until a corrective surgery was performed by plastic surgeon Dr Subodh Kumar Singh.

Achievements
The true story was captured by Emmy Nominee Director Magan Mylan in a 39 minute documentary Smile Pinki. It cast Pinky Sonkar as the lead.

The documentary was nominated for the Best Documentary at the Oscars and won the award in 2009.
