Apart from Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Farhan Akhtar, the film also stars Zaira Wasim. It will premiere at TIFF on September 13, 2019. The Toronto film festival is touted to be one of the largest and prestigious film festivals. Out of 20 films, The Sky Is Pink managed to bag its place to this coveted film festival.
Talking about it, director Shonali Bose shared, "The Sky Is Pink is a deeply personal and an incredibly special film for me. At its core, this is an extraordinary story of what it means to be a family. I am honored that the film will premiere at TIFF – my third film to premiere at TIFF and I cannot wait."
Priyanka Chopra said, "The Sky Is Pink is a story that I connected with from the minute I heard it and in Shonali's hands, it's been crafted into a moving, beautiful film that will renew our faith in love and life. It's what led me to not only take on the challenging role of Aditi Chaudhary but also to co-produce it with Ronnie and Siddharth. I am so proud of this film and am honoured that the film's world premiere will take place at the Gala Presentation at TIFF 2019. I'm looking forward to being back at TIFF once again to showcase our small package of love to the world."
Produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films in association with Ivanhoe Pictures and Purple Pebble Pictures, The Sky Is Pink is the incredible love story of a couple – Aditi and Niren Chaudhary - spanning 25 years, told through the lens of their spunky teenage daughter – Aisha Chaudhary, who was diagnosed with a terminal illness. The film is slated to release worldwide on October 11, 2019.
