Dynamic duo Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s recent hit, Bharat released last week and turned out to be an enormous money spinner at the box office. The period drama is on track to enter the Rs 200 crore club and will rapidly become the highest grossing blockbuster of the year. It is interesting to note that Bollywood’s ultimate desi girl, Priyanka Chopra Jonas was the initially the first choice for the film but she gave up her role right before shooting was expected to commence. After this decision, Salman Khan fans have created their own mission to troll PeeCee.
The actress recently wrapped up the shooting of the Sky is Pink and spills about why she chose this film over Salman Khan's endeavour. She recently stated that Bharat is a song and dance film. In a viral video, Priyanka held, “Everyone questions my judgment – why not this tent-pole, potboiler, song and dance film and why am I playing a mother…” Priyanka further supplemented her statement by adding that she chose The Sky Is Pink because of the director of the film, Shonali Bose and her visualization of the film itself.
During the Bharat promotions, Salman quoted, “She has had a huge struggle in her career before she went on to become this super achiever. If she decided to leave everything and get married, it is amazing. She is the most professional person there is. Just check out her life graph. She’s the girl who came from Bareilly, went on to win a beauty pageant and become Miss World.”
The Sky Is Pink is a love story based around the life of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary's parents. Aisha was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. The movie is scheduled for an October 11 release.
