Actor Priyanka Chopra and her husband, American singer Nick Jonas have reasons to be delighted professionally. While Priyanka’s new film The Sky Is Pink is set to premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Jonas Brothers’ latest offering Sucker has won four nominations at 2019 Video Music Awards.

Sucker marks the coming together of the Jonas Brothers after a six year hiatus. The video, which released in March this year, sees the trio — Nick, Kevin and Joe — romancing their respective partners — Priyanka Chopra, Danielle Jonas and Sophie Turner. Reportedly, fans lapped up the song for its quirky concept and funky costumes besides the foot-tapping music.

Meanwhile, Priyanka is thrilled to be back at the TIFF, this time to showcase “a small package of love to the world”. Her film The Sky Is Pink, helmed by Shonali Bose, will have its world premiere at the prestigious festival on September 13.

The National Award-winning actor essays the lead role along with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. Her Purple Pebble Pictures is co-producing the film. “The Sky Is Pink is a story that I connected with from the minute I heard it and in Shonali’s hands, it’s been crafted into a moving, beautiful film that will renew our faith in love and life. It’s what led me to not only take on the challenging role of Aditi Chaudhary but also to co-produce it. I am so proud of this film and am honoured that the film’s world premiere will take place at the Gala Presentation at TIFF 2019. I’m looking forward to being back at TIFF once again to showcase our a small package of love to the world,” said Priyanka, whose production Pahuna: The Little Visitors was also screened at the fest two years ago.

The Sky Is Pink is a love story of a couple — Aditi and Niren Chaudhary — spanning 25 years, told through the lens of their spunky teenage daughter — Aisha Chaudhary, who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness.

For Bose, The Sky Is Pink is a deeply personal and an incredibly special film. “At its core, this is an extraordinary story of what it means to be a family. I am honoured that the film will premiere at TIFF,” she added. The Sky Is Pink is produced by RSVP and Roy Kapur Films, in association with Ivanhoe Pictures and Purple Pebble Pictures.

We take great pride in presenting our film at TIFF and look forward to sharing this film with everyone.”
