Farhan Akhtar recently shared a throwback picture from the sets of the film The Sky Is Pink where he can be seen chilling on a bed with a lion and flowers in the background. Dressed in a white T-shirt and red pants, the charming actor can hardly control his laughter. He shared the picture with the caption,
‘#bts on the sets of #TheSkyIsPink.. man was it hard keeping a straight face doing this scene .. grrrrrrr’
This scene in the film has great comic value as it is from the part where Farhan Akhtar and Priyanka Chopra get to spend their first wedding night at a hotel in Chandni Chowk owned by Akhtar’s uncle. The couple had decided to spend their first night together as a married couple in a five-star hotel but the last moment change in the plan due to the family pressure killed completely ruined the bride’s mood. The scene showing the rage of Priyanka Chopra, a polished South Delhi girl, and the helplessness of Farhan Akhtar, a Chandni Chowk boy, had everyone watching the movie in fits.
The Sky is Pink released worldwide on October 11th, 2019. It is Priyanka Chopra’s comeback film in Bollywood after a gap of three years since she was working in the US. Priyanka Chopra has also co-produced this film.
Although The Sky is Pink received a ten-minute standing ovation at Toronto International Film Festival, the film could not do great at the box-office worldwide. The much-hyped film could only manage to make Rs.10.7 crores on its opening weekend. The Sky is Pink is the real-life story of a young girl Aisha Chaudhry and her parents Niren and Aditi Chaudhry who struggled with Aisha’s terminal illness. The film shows a different perspective towards death and stresses the need for celebrating life instead of mourning death.
