The first look poster of Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink is out. The film stars Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf. The inspirational drama is based on the life of author-motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary.
Aisha was six months old when she underwent bone marrow transplant and developed pulmonary fibrosis. She passed away at the age 18 in 2015. Her book, My Little Epiphanies, was published posthumously. Aisha is played in the film by Zaira Wasim. Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar play her parents, Aditi and Niren Chaudhary.
The Sky Is Pink had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 3. The film, produced RSVP Movies and Roy Kapur Films, is set for theatrical release on October 11.
Priyanka Chopra will next be seen in Netflix’s The White Tiger alongside Rajkummar Rao. Farhan Akhtar has started shooting for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s boxing drama Toofan.
In June this year, Zaira Wasim announced she is quitting her film career due to personal and religious reasons.
