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.”
