The trailer of The Sky Is Pink is out. A comic dramedy that revolves around the story of a couple whose daughter has been diagnosed with a terminal illness.
Farhan Akhtar and Priyanka Chopra play the couple, who accidentally conceive Zaira( their younger daughter). The trailer traces their story from courtship days to the problems both face as a married couple, especially when tragedy strikes the family.
Farhan and Priyanka’s understated chemistry in Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadkne Do (2015) was much appreciated by fans and audiences, who have since then been waiting to see the duo together.
The narration that leads the trailer of the film, is that of Zaira, who calls herself the villain of her parents’ love story.
A complete family drama which has its moments of romance, awkwardness, fun, drama, and tragedy, The Sky Is Pink looks like an entertainer.
Inspired from true events, as the trailer mentions, the story of middle-class parents and their romances is what keeps audience pitching for them. The obvious tragic element is the inevitable death of their child and how they find ways to make most of the time left with her.
The story of the film is inspired by two real-life instances. One, from the family of Aisha Chaudhary, a motivational speaker, who died in 2015 at the age of 18 after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. Second, from the director, Shonali Bose’s own life, having lost her 16-year-old son in a freak accident, as she mentioned in an interview to Scroll.in.
The Sky Is Pink will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on 13 September 2019 and will release worldwide on 11 October 2019.
Produced by RSVP Movies, Roy Kapur Films, and Purple Pepple Pictures, The Sky Is Pink also stars Rohit Saraf as Aisha’s( Zaira Wasim) brother.
Presenting the trailer for #TheSkyIsPink– a film about love, made with so much of it! It’s a very proud milestone moment for me, because it’s my first as an actor & co-producer. Hope it gives you all the feels & inspires you to celebrate life!https://t.co/eJuCD371iR pic.twitter.com/k05cY6AkD2
