Priyanka Chopra Jonas' Hindi comeback film The Sky Is Pink has finally opened at the theatres today and prior to this, the actress was keeping on her toes with an extensive promotion schedule. She, after wrapping promotions back in the country, headed back to the States to root for the film. On Thursday, Priyanka took The Sky Is Pink on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and had made sure to leave no stone unturned to make her episode fun. But, during the course of the show, Priyanka was left in tears by Sean Evans. Well, yes. As a part of the segment hosted by Sean titled Hot Ones, Priyanka and Jimmy had to eat chicken wings while answering some 'hot' questions. To make it more difficult for them to sit through, the chicken wings became hotter and spicier with each passing question.
During the chat show, Priyanka indulged in chicken wings that went from mild to extremely spicy and was seen sipping water and milk between each bite to curb the impact of the spicy food. Along with introducing the audience to The Sky Is Pink, Priyanka spoke about her American pop singer Nick Jonas and even revealed to have given him a pep talk before the Jonas Brothers' appearance on the segment a while before. "I did tell him that he needs to do these for the Indians. Now that he's married to my entire country, he needs to bring it home for us," Priyanka told. She further added that Nick and she had a long conversation on the difficulties he faced while having the chicken wings. The Baywatch actress then said she was proud of him for completing the segment. Towards the end of her segment, Priyanka was left in tears while finding it difficult to sit down calmly.
Speaking of The Sky Is Pink, it is based on the late motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary, who breathed her last in 2015 after suffering from pulmonary fibrosis, a respiratory disorder in which scars are formed in the lung tissues. Zaira Wasim plays the role of Aisha while Priyanka and Farhan Akhtar are Aditi and Niren Chaudhary respectively. The film is directed by Shonali Bose and bankrolled by Roy Kapur Film, in association with S K Global and Priyanka's production house Purple Pebble Pictures. It released today that is October 11, 2019.
