Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy to cast Meryl Streep in her next project

Did we read that right? Is Pakistani filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy really working with Meryl Streep for her next project?!

Well, her Facebook status sure hints at it.


 

Meryl Streep AND Faiz Ahmed Faiz? Talk about a match made in heaven!

The documentary filmmaker has chosen to remain tight-lipped about the upcoming project for now but did share that she will be revealing more next month.

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. It’s no wonder that she’s made so many prominent friends.
