Priyanka Chopra Jonas heads off to Toronto for The Sky Is Pink premiere
Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Farhan Akhtar starrer The Sky Is Pink is off to a start that most filmmakers only dream of. The Shonali Bose-directed venture will have its world premiere at the Gala presentation of the 44th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 13, joining the likes of Hollywood’s acclaimed projects, A Star Is Born (2018) and Green Book (2018), that have previously held the honour.
Deeply attached to the material of The Sky Is Pink, the director is glad that her human drama will be showcased on such a wide platform.
The movie traces the love story of a couple — Aditi and Niren Chaudhary — spanning 25 years, told through the lens of their spunky daughter, Aisha Chaudhary, who was diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Producer Screwvala says, “It is great to be back, especially after the love we received last year for Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota. We take great pride in presenting our film at TIFF.”
