The Sky Is Pink, directed by Shonali Bose, had it’s world premiere at the 44th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and we have some pictures. The film was part of the Gala Presentation at TIFF. Only 20 films get selected for the Gala Presentation from around the world each year. The Sky Is Pink has the distinct honour of being the only film selected from all of Asia. Previous films that have held Gala presentation slots include Warner Bros. box-office hit ’A Star is Born’ and Universal Studios Academy Award winning ‘Green Book’.
Inspired by a true story, The Sky Is Pink is a film about the abiding power of timeless love, and what it really means to be a family. It is the sweeping and heartfelt journey of the love of a couple spanning 30 years, told through the lens of their sassy, sardonic and spunky teenage daughter Aisha Chaudhary. Most of all, it’s a poignant celebration of love and life itself.
The film brings back the much-loved on-screen couple Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Farhan Akhtar together who essay the lead roles. It also stars the young powerhouse of talent Zaira Wasim (who plays Aisha) and Rohit Saraf in titular roles.
Directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Shonali Bose, The Sky is Pink is produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films, in association with S K Global and Purple Pebble Pictures. The film is written by Shonali Bose and Nilesh Maniyar.
