After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Priyanka Chopra’s The Sky is Pink is now heading for its European premiere at the BFI London Film Festival. Directed by Shonali Bose, The Sky is Pink stars Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. The film will be screened at the BFI London Film Festival on 6 and 7 October.

“It’s an honour for us to have our European Premiere at the BFI London Film Festival. The city of London plays a significant part in the timeline of the film. In fact, we even shot some portions of the film here so that makes it even more special. The Sky is Pink is a story that will surprise the audience in its representation of love in all its forms. I am so proud of what we’ve created. It’s a labour of love and we’re excited to finally hand it over to the audience,” said Priyanka in a statement.

Reports have said that The Sky is Pink will also be premiering at the Busan International Film Festival.

BFI London Film Festival will be held from 2-12 October. The film is inspired from real life events. It is based on the life of Aisha Chaudhary, a motivational speaker who was born with an immune deficiency disorder and was later diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis.

Reports have said that The Sky is Pink will also be premiering at the Busan International Film Festival which is being held between 3-12 October.

When the Shonali Bose directorial had been selected for TIFF, Priyanka had taken to Instagram to share the news. “So happy and proud to announce that #TheSkyIsPink is the only film from Asia to have an official selection at The 44th Toronto Film Festival 2019 at the Gala!!!” she wrote as the caption.

Produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur’s RSVP Movies and written by Shonali Bose and Juhi Chaturvedi, The Sky is Pink will release in theatres on 11 October.
