Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood project may have hit a roadblock but she seems excited about the future. She will begin shooting for the only Bollywood film she is currently part of, The Sky Is Pink, on Wednesday.

The actor took to Instagram to share the news and a few amazing selfies. “I’m so excited and happy about today. Some stories just need to be told. In the spirit of Aisha Chaudhry and her incredible parents Aditi and Niren we bring you our tentatively titled super special project The Sky is Pink. Going on floors today. God Speed,” she captioned a photo album shared on Wednesday morning.

In the photos, we see her with her co-stars, Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim, director Shonali Bose and producers Sidharth Roy Kapur and Ronnie Screwvala. She also shared happy selfies with Zaira and Farhan. “I look forward to diving into this film…It’s very special to me. As soon I read it, I knew I had to be a part of telling this story, so I’m wearing two hats on this one… as an actor and as a co-producer,” Priyanka said in a statement.

“In both aspects, I am equally excited to work with the amazing team of actors and technicians we have on board. Shonali is a formidable filmmaker and I can’t wait to see this story unfold in her expertise. I’m looking forward to working with Farhan, Ronnie and Sid again. All in all, it’s a great homecoming,” added the actress, who is working with Farhan after “Dil Dhadakne Do”.

Zaira says she is thrilled to be part of the movie. “I immediately fell in love with the story when Sid and Shonali narrated it to me. It is a character that touched my heart and I am honoured to be playing this role. I am looking forward to working with Farhan and Priyanka.” Farhan calls it a “beautiful story”. “I am looking forward to working with Priyanka again and collaborating with Ronnie and Sid,” he added.

Priyanka and Farhan play Zaira’s parents in the film. The film is based on Aisha Choudhary, a young motivational speaker who was diagnosed with immune deficiency disorder as an infant. She died at 19 years old.

Cowboy Ninja Viking, Priyanka’s upcoming Hollywood movie with Chris Pratt, has been pulled out from its release calendar by Universal Studios and the production has been delayed indefinitely. Priyanka signed the film after walking out of Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, 10 days before her portion of the shoot was to begin.

Priyanka also has Rebel Wilson’s Isn’t It Romantic in the pipeline. The film will release on February 14.
