Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has won hearts of Pakistanis all over the world, including Academy Award winning filmmaker, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy's.

The Pakistani filmmaker couldn't help but take a selfie with Canada's handsome PM when she met him at a recent global event. Sharmeen's fan moment was evident with the smile on her face, as she posed next to Trudeau:

It's not hard to reason why she would caption it as her "favourite selfie". Justin Trudeau has been making headlines for making an extra effort with minorities and stressing on pertinent social issues.

Sharmeen was attending the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2016 held in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland where notables -- like US Secretary of State John Kerry, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, British Finance Minister George Osborne, Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto, COO of Facebook Sheryl Sandberg --  were invited to help shape global, regional, and industry agendas.

The Canadian Prime Minister, being a proud feminist, took up the opportunity at the meeting to stress on the fact that men "shouldn't be afraid of the word 'feminist'. Men and women should use it to describe themselves anytime they want.

"But that role we have as men, in supporting and demanding equality and demanding a shift, is really, really important," he said.

The four day event will end on Januray 23rd.
