The Sky Is Pink, is a story of a family that never gives up despite all the odds and an amazing love story of a couple that traverses decades and continents, told through the lens of their sassy, sardonic, spunky teenage daughter, Aisha. While Zaira Wasim plays the role of Aisha Chaudhary and Rohit Saraf plays her brother, Priyanka and Farhan play their parents in the movie.

Director Shonali Bose shared, “Watching the film for the first time with an audience is always an unnerving experience. And when it’s a world stage with a lot of expectations and 2,000 people – it’s even more terrifying. So when they laughed out loud multiple times and then wept audibly it was utterly moving and overwhelming. I can’t wait to share this baby of mine with the rest of the world. Especially India.”

Global Film Festivals like Toronto are a great platform and it was a great to see this is the only Asian film at the Gala Presentation of the Festival in 2019” .”

Producer Siddharth Roy Kapur expressed, “I am touched with the love we have received here at the World Premiere and this is just the beginning of what I’m sure will be a special journey for the film. I am thrilled for the entire team that has worked so hard on this very special story.”
