Priyanka Chopra is all set to make her comeback in Bollywood with Shonali Bose’ upcoming film ‘The Sky Is Pink’. The film will see Priyanka reuniting with her ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ co-star Farhan Akhtar. In this biographical drama, Priyanka and Farhan are playing the parents of Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf.

Ever since the film was announced, everyone was curious about why it has been named ‘The Sky Is Pink‘. Earlier it was reported that the film title was only a tentative one and the makers are looking out for a suitable Hindi title. In an interview with Biz Asia, talking about the film’s unique title, producer Siddharth Roy Kapur had said, “We like the working title because it relates to a particular scene in the film, that is very evocative and brings to life why it’s tentatively called ‘The Sky Is Pink’, but obviously we can’t call it that.”

However, with the release of the film’s first poster, it was confirmed that the makers have decided to go ahead with the working title. Naturally, everyone is wondering what’s the significance of the film’s title. Thankfully, director Shonali Bose’ opened up about the reason why she chose such a unique title for her film.

Talking about the title, Shonali told Scroll.in, “Society puts us in boxes and tells us how to live our lives; who to love; what to be. We struggle for our very identities. Who really has freedom from their parents, families, peers to truly be themselves and live their lives the way they want without being judged? “

She further added, “Your sky can be whatever colour you choose it to be. For one of the characters in the film, it is pink. For another, it can be a rainbow of colors. What colour is your sky? I hope every person in the audience of this film asks themselves this question.

Wow..what a lovely concept is that. Don’t you guys agree?

The trailer of this film was dropped today and it made us all the more eager for its release. After its World premiere in TIFF on September 13, ‘The Sky Is Pink’ will hit the Indian screens on October 11.
