Shonali Bose’s The Sky is Pink has made the audience excited for reasons more than one. The movie will see the comeback of the global icon Priyanka Chopra after she was last seen in Prakash Jha’s Jai Gangaajal (2016). And now, after making her fans wait for three long years, she will be seen pairing up with actor-director Farhan Akhtar, again. After working on both parts of Don, the duo paired up in Dil Dhadakne Do (2015) which was met with a positive response by their fans.
The movie also stars Dangal's Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf. The Sky is Pink is based on a motivational speaker named Aisha Chaudhary. She was a young Indian author and a speaker at TEDx.
Her book My Little Epiphanies was published one day before her death. The 18-year-old author had developed a serious illness called pulmonary fibrosis- a type of condition that causes the hardening of the lungs, caused due to a side effect of a bone marrow transplant.
Reportedly, Zaira will be playing the role of Aisha, while Priyanka will be seen in the role of her mother Aditi Choudhary.
