Priyanka Chopra walked the red carpet of Toronto International Film Festival 2019 alongside director Shonali Bose and actor Farhan Akhtar. The 'Sky is Pink' team looked gorgeous as they posed for pictures at the event. Donning a black and white frilled gown by Marchesa FW19 RTW, Chopra looked gorgeous. For those unaware, The Sky is Pink had its world premiere at Roy Thomson Hall where Chopra shared a fun fact that almost 10 years back, her film 'What's Your Rashee' had also premiered.
Talking about the film, Chopra said: “It was a really hard juxtaposition of real life for me. Especially because I was getting married and at the same time this film deals with loss, loss of a child, which is such an unnatural way of being.” She further added: “People get surprised when they see ‘The Sky is Pink’ and they’re like, ‘this is not a Bollywood movie.’ Bollywood is not a genre!It really is my quest to educate people in that," Chopra was quoted in a media interaction in Toronto.
