Her fame did not go unnoticed as she was hurriedly accused by Pakistani Film Director, Syed Noor. The director accused Chinoy to have copied his idea of the movie Price Of Honor. The movie was released in 2011.
Syed Noor has also claimed that Chinoy did not only steal his idea but also the name and script. The director further said that he would not take the matter to the courts but he should have been credited for it in the least at the Oscars.
On the other hand, actor Moammar Rana also stated that people like Chinoy bring disgrace to Pakistan and challenged her to make a documentary on the afflictions of the people who survived the drone attacks.
