During The Today Show, Priyanka discussed the real-life inspiration for the movie and why she decided to co-produce it herself. The movie follows the real-life events of Aisha Chaudhary and her parent's lives. When Aisha was only a year old, she was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. Priyanka talked about how Aisha's parents struggled to give her a good life even if it was short and also mentioned that the couple is still going strong today and are not separated. That truly impressed Priyanka, as statistically, a large number of couples separate after the loss of a child. Priyanka believes that The Sky is Pink is an inspirational movie that brings families together, which is why she decided to act as a producer for the movie.

This is why she believes that The Sky is Pink is capable of transcending borders and languages.
