The much-awaited film from Roy Kapur Productions, The Sky Is Pink, directed by Shonali Bose, has been selected for the 44th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). As per reports, the film will have its world premiere as part of the Gala Presentation at TIFF.

Starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Farhan Akhtar, and Zaira Wasim, the film will premiere at TIFF on September 13, 2019. TIFF is one of the largest and most prestigious film festivals in the world. Only 20 films get selected for the Gala Presentation from around the world each year and ‘The Sky Is Pink’ has the distinct honour of being the only film selected from all of Asia. The film is produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films, in association with Ivanhoe Pictures and Purple Pebble Pictures.

Talking about the same, director Shonali Bose shared, "The Sky Is Pink is a deeply personal and an incredibly special film for me. At its core, this is an extraordinary story of what it means to be a family. I am honored that the film will premiere at TIFF – my third film to premiere at TIFF and I cannot wait.” 

Producer Ronnie Screwvala, whose film 'Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota' garnered immense acclaim at TIFF 2018 shared, "It is great to be back especially after the love we received last year. The Sky Is Pink is a story for audiences across the globe. We take great pride in presenting our film at TIFF and look forward to sharing this film with everyone."

Talking about the world premiere at the Festival, producer Siddharth Roy Kapur said, “I am thrilled that our first production at Roy Kapur Films has been selected to have its worldwide premiere at TIFF. From the moment that Shonali shared this incredible story with us, we knew that it had the potential to resonate with audiences around the world.”

National Award winning actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas who essays the lead role along with actor Farhan Akhtar, and whose Purple Pebble Pictures is co-producing the film stated, “The Sky Is Pink is a story that I connected with from the minute I heard it and in Shonali’s hands, it’s been crafted into a moving, beautiful film that will renew our faith in love and life.  It’s what led me to not only take on the challenging role of Aditi Chaudhary but also to co-produce it with Ronnie and Siddharth.  I am so proud of this film and am honoured that the film’s world premiere will take place at the Gala Presentation at TIFF 2019.  I’m looking forward to being back at TIFF once again to showcase our small package of love to the world."

Produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films in association with Ivanhoe Pictures and Purple Pebble Pictures, 'The Sky Is Pink' is the incredible love story of a couple – Aditi and Niren Chaudhary - spanning 25 years, told through the lens of their spunky teenage daughter – Aisha Chaudhary, who was diagnosed with a terminal illness.
