On the 25th birthday of her late son, Director Shonali Bose posted a picture celebrating over champagne with Priyanka Chopra – both of them are currently in Los Angeles and were presumably meeting to discuss the next upcoming schedule of the film.
Shonali shared some heartfelt insights on her relationship with her son Ishaan and also how she felt when she first came to know that Priyanka may come on board for her film tentatively titled ‘The Sky is Pink’.
She recalled the day when she woke up to produce Siddharth Roy Kapur’s text on the exact same day last year saying that Priyanka Chopra has read Shonali’s script and if she can fly to New York right away to meet Priyanka Chopra. This was the moment that started the magical journey of this film with a dream star cast of Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim.
Clearly Priyanka and Shonali share a very special bond. Shonali also shared that Priyanka took Shoanli’s personal life experiences as a lesson and drew on them for her emotional scenes during the shoot.
It sure seems like this is a film worth waiting for!
