It has been almost three years since fans have been waiting to see Priyanka Chopra in a Bollywood movie. Last seen in Prakash Jha’s Jai Gangaajal (2016), the former beauty queen is finally returning to home turf with the forthcoming film The Sky Is Pink.

The movie, which mounted the shooting floor in August last year, has finally booked a date for its theatrical release. Helmed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Shonali Bose, the much-awaited movie will roll into theatres on 11th October, 2019.

Apart from playing the female lead, Priyanka Chopra has also co-produced the film with Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur. Besides her, The Sky Is Pink also stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in lead roles.

The film tells the true story of Aisha Chaudhary, who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 14. She breathed her last on January 24, 2015, hours after her book, My Little Epiphanies, was launched at the Jaipur Literature Festival.
