Priyanka Chopra on donning a director’s hat in future


Priyanka Chopra

After staying away from Bollywood for almost three years, Priyanka Chopra is finally returning to her home turf with the upcoming Hindi film The Sky Is Pink. Also starring Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in lead roles, the movie is inspired from a real-life incident and features Chopra in the role of a dying teenager’s mother.

During a promotional event of the much-awaited film, when the actress was asked if she would like to go behind the camera someday and direct a film, she said, “It is something that makes me nervous because it is a lot of responsibility. But slowly, I have moved from acting to production and hopefully, I’ll make that (directing films) transition too someday.”

The Sky Is Pink is directed by award-winning filmmaker Shonali Bose. She shot to fame after helming the 2015 film Margarita With A Straw which went on to garner critical and commercial success. It is the second time when Priyanka Chopra has worked with a female director after Zoya Akhtar in Dil Dhadakne Do (2015).

“I don’t think gender defines anything. Women and men are capable or as incapable as their merit makes them. Working with Shonali was my honour. I think she is an incredible filmmaker and her gender does not define that,” said the actress.

“I don’t think that your estrogen changes the kind of films that you make. I think she is an incredible filmmaker and the kind of stories that she has told and will continue telling, I think will define Indian cinema,” she added.

Produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films, in association with SK Global and Purple Pebble Pictures, The Sky Is Pink is scheduled to release on October 11.
