The 'Quantico' star Priyanka Chopra is finally in India headed for her prime projects that include Ali Abbas Zafar directorial 'Bharat' opposite Salman Khan and Shonali Bose directorial 'The Sky Is Pink' in which the 36-year old will be paired opposite Farhan Akhtar.
The actress will be playing Zaira Wasim's mother on-screen and this is reported to be an author-backed role. The cast has to wait just for two more weeks for the same as it has been announced that 'The Sky Is Pink' will go on floors on August 8.
Earlier Farhan Akhtar shared the script's first page on his official Instagram handle and captioned,"It all starts here. Thank you #ShonaliBose for trusting me with this beautiful story. #fromtheheart." That's a great method of beginning things professionally, with a mettle of gratitude that Farhan clearly expressed.
The film is based on an inspiring true story of a young girl who faces challenging immunity-deficiency. The story is based on the life of Aisha Choudhary, who penned a book about her struggle with SCID, titled 'My Little Epiphanies'. The girl had to drop out of school because of her weak health, but she became a motivational speaker at the age of 14. Hours after her book was launched at the Jaipur Literature Festival, Aisha passed away on January 24, 2015.
Zaira will be playing the role of Aisha in the film, whilst Priyanka and Farhan will be playing her parents. The dialogues of 'The Sky Is Pink' have been penned by Juhi Chaturvedi, who last contributed in Shoojit Sircar's 'October'. The music for the film will be laid by Pritam.
