But as he has worked with her, he hopes Zaira changes her mind. Farhan also added that he didn't get a chance to speak with her since she made this decision of her public.

Also, when PeeCee was asked about Zaira's decision, she said, "It's a personal choice. Who are we to dictate what someone should & shouldn't do? She is an amazing actor who has done incredible work. We will always wish her the best."

Meanwhile, Zaira has also worked in movies like Dangal and Secret Superstar both alongside Aamir Khan. Now, she will be seen playing a pivotal role in The Sky Is Pink.

Apart from this, The Sky Is Pink also marks Priyanka Chopra’s comeback to Bollywood after a long time. It is slated to release on October 11.
