Priyanka Chopra’s India schedule is packed as she is promoting her upcoming film The Sky is Pink, directed by Shonali Bose. Apart from visiting different cities, she also appeared on various reality shows, the latest one being The Kapil Sharma Show. It was a laughter riot. During the interaction, Priyanka told Kapil that she was upset he didn’t attend her wedding. “I sent you an invitation for my wedding, but you didn’t come. I felt very bad. Wherever I go, I take my entire family along,” the actor said.

To which Kapil Sharma replied, “Main toh ghodi pe aana chahtha tha (I wanted to come riding the horse).”

Kapil Sharma also reminded Priyanka that both of them got married in December 2018. When the host asked her whether Nick Jonas touches her mother’s feet or blows air kisses, PeeCee said, “Dono ke beech mei! Bechara hug karta hai mummy ko! (It’s somewhere in between. Nick hugs my mother).”

The Sky is Pink premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and it got a lot of appreciation from both the critics and the audience. It hits the theatres on 11 October.

In an interview with Variety at the Toronto International Film Festival, Shonali had said that she had no idea about Aisha’s story until she met her parents in Los Angeles. Aisha had watched the trailer to her 2015 film Margarita With a Straw and told her parents that she hoped she would “live to see it” but passed away two weeks later. The Chaudharys watched the film, which explores themes of disability and sexuality, when it released and decided to track down Shonali when they saw it was dedicated to her late son Ishan. She said,

“She (Aisha’s mother Aditi Chaudhary) burst out saying, ‘I’ve lost my child and I want only one filmmaker in the world to tell her story because I loved your film, it was her (Aisha) dying wish to see your film, and you’ve lost a child.’”

“For me as a filmmaker, I was drawn to it precisely for that reason. I wanted to explore the couple’s relationship. I wanted to explore what happens to a marriage when faced with the loss of a child. My own marriage ended when I lost my son. I was fascinated by the fact that this couple had made it,” she added.
