On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ and Farhan Akhtar’s The Sky Is Pink opened to a slow start at the box office. The film has received rave reviews from the critics and even received a 15-minute standing ovation at Toronto International Film Festival but that has not percolated down to ticket sales in India. According to a trade website, the film had a poor opening on Day with collections of Rs 2.50 crore nett. Apparently, the first day collections of the film are far lower than Jai Gangaaja which was Priyanka's last Bollywood film in 2016 but is much better than the last few releases of Farhan.

However, the film holds is expected to grow in the coming days as it is a wider release and the weekend looks promising. The Sky Is Pink is directed by Shonali Bose and also stars Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf. It is based on the life of motivational speaker and author Aisha Chaudhary who was diagnosed with severe immune-deficiency disorder at birth.
