The Sky Is Pink: Priyanka Chopra's Latest Receives Standing Ovation At Tiff
After taking a break of nearly 3 years from Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra is making her come back alongside Farhan Akhtar in the upcoming, The Sky Is Pink. The movie is directed by Shonali Bose and was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday. Priyanka’s return movie went on to receive an overwhelming 4-minute long standing ovation.
Priyanka had even posted a video from her red carpet appearance at the festival. Under the video, she wrote: “Thank you, thank you, thank you… for coming to see us and #TheSkyIsPink. Your love and support has always meant the world to me… I’m so grateful for your constant support! #World Premiere @tiff_net.”
After the filming, another video of Priyanka Chopra made its way on the internet in which she broke down after the amazing response the film received at TIFF. Several prominent faces present at the screening took to their twitter to praise the whole team.
Wayne R praised Shonali’s direction skills and said, “The way Shonali Bose shot the fillm and used flashbacks effectively added more depth to the film. Also having the daughter narrate the film added another layer of connection to her. At the end of the film #TheSkyIsPink is received a standing ovation from the audience.”

The Sky Is Pink is the real-life inspired story of Ayesha Chaudhary, suffering from a terminal illness. The movie tells the story of how a family copes up with her medical condition despite knowing that she wouldn’t survive for long. Zaira Wasim plays the role of Ayesha Chaudhary in the movie.
Wayne R even shared his experience of listening to the members of the Chaudhary family at the film festival. “Amazing to hear from the Chaudhary family today which is whom #TheSkyIsPink is based. Deep, emotional film about a family fighting to keep their daughter alive due to a health condition. @priyankchopra was outstanding and @FarOutAkhtar was great too. You will cry.”
Dr Winder Gill, who was also present at the screening shared, “Wow this movie was incredible! It was an honour to have the Bose and Chaudhary families in the audience today! #TIFF2019.” He further added, “It has reinforced why I went into #Medicine and my job as an #Immunlogist.”
In another tweet, Dr Winder wrote, “There are no words to console those who have lost lives, but your courage & stories help everyone. I myself think of patients who became my friends & family, often spending more time with them than my own family. I’m so privileged to have known them. I hope for a cure.”
Another viewer at the film festival with the Twitter name, Writethana wrote, “What a powerful Saturday of #TIFF19 films! Started my day with this tear-jerker. #TheSkyIsPink cast talk about this amazing story of a family’s courageous journey!”
When Priyanka Chopra was offered the movie, she had chosen between ‘The Sky Is Pink’ and Salman Khan’s ‘Bharat. She chose this over Bharat which led to a tiff between her and Salman Khan.
