The Sky is Pink is one of the most talked about and awaited films of 2019. Starring Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf, the film is about the young motivation speaker and author, Aisha Chaudhary who suffered from pulmonary fibrosis at a very young age and passed away when she was only 18 years old.
The film not only shows the suffering of the family, but also has a love story at the crux of its plotline. The film shows Aisha’s parents Aditi and Niren’s love story through the eyes of their young daughter. The film starts with Priyanka and Farhan playing twenty five years old and spans over two decades to show the characters touching their fifties. Talking about their transformation, director Shonali Bose said, “With Priyanka, I decided to start long hair and then to keep going shorter as she aged. So, when she is younger at the age of 25-26, her hair is longer. It really helped her do that part of the young person as she is flinging her hair around. And when she is at the oldest at 50, she has short hair which is very distinct. When you see the short hair you immediately know that she has lost the child.
Elaborating on Farhan’s appearance, she revealed, “We did a curly wig for his younger days and made him appear sleeker and groomed as he became a CEO and used a distinct moustache for post-death scenes.”
Talking about her inspiration behind the looks, Shonali revealed that she took cues from the real life couple. She said, “Aditi’s motto in life is, ‘When life is tough, look like a million bucks’. Every day, even when Aisha was very, very sick, Aditi would stand in front of her wardrobe and think what she would like to wear.”
With a touching story in hand, a lot is expected off The Sky is Pink. The film is releasing on October 11 and looks promising so far.
