Priyanka Chopra, who was last seen in Bajirao Mastani in 2015, is all set to make her Bollywood comeback with Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink co-starring Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf.
In one of the recent promotional interviews, PeeCee opened up about her film and revealed why she chose The Sky Is Pink over any other Hindi film. She even revealed why the film holds a very special place in her heart. Sharing a video on her social media handle, she wrote, "The initial reviews for #TheSkyIsPink have been wonderful and I'm so ready to head back to @tiff_net for the world premiere with the rest of the team on Sept 13. Busy and exciting days ahead. Stay tuned..."
In the video, Priyanka says, "Well, I am super excited about many things. One, that it’s my first Hindi film that I am also producing. So, being just co-producer on a film that I, like a story that I really wanted to tell makes me really happy. When you do a film like this, you need time. Time to prep, time to get into it. So, I couldn’t do a movie, especially a Hindi movie. I was really looking for an immersive experience as an actor. Whether an American film or Hindi film. And when this came along, it struck on so many levels for me. I just knew it had to be done."
The Sky is Pink is a love story of Aditi and Niren, told through the lens of their spunky teenage daughter Aisha who was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Spanning over three decades, the family moves countries, challenge science, change faith and are constantly tested in their love and relationships.
The Sky is Pink is produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films, in association with S K Global and Purple Pebble Pictures. The film is slated to release on October 11, 2019.
