Priyanka and Farhan’s on screen chemistry is palpable in the video which traces their characters’ romance from the carefree early days of their relationship to the time when their daughter’s terminal illness threatens to shake their bond. The video opens with Farhan and Priyanka riding a scooter through the narrow streets of Delhi to his home that he sneaks her into. He is later seen mollifying his sulking bride on their wedding night. The clip takes a dark turn when Priyanka is seen snuggling up to him for comfort, presumably after they first learn about their daughter’s illness.

The Sky Is Pink is based on the short life of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary who was born with an immune deficiency disorder and later diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. It also stars Dangal actor Zaira Wasim and Rohan Saraf.

In an interview with Variety, director Shonali Bose said that Aisha’s parents, Aditi and Niren Chaudhary, had approached her to make a film on their daughter’s life after watching her 2015 directorial Margarita With a Straw. Shonali added that she was drawn to the family’s story because she was intrigued by the fact that the couple’s relationship had survived the loss of a child. “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 said.

The film premiered on 13 September at the 44th Toronto International Film Festival. The film received a lot of appreciation, from both critics and the audience and got a four-minute-long standing ovation at the festival screening. The film releases on 11 October.
