'The Sky Is Pink' marks the Bollywood comeback of Chopra after a break of three years.
Actress Priyanka Chopra and actor Farhan Akhtar-starrer 'The Sky Is Pink' is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) 2019. The festival is slated to take place from September 5 to 15. TIFF announced the news on its official Twitter handle with a poster of the Shonali Bose directorial featuring Akhtar, Chopra, Rohit Suresh Saraf and Zaira Wasim.

"Shonali Bose's THE SKY IS PINK, starring Zaira Wasim, Rohit Saraf, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Farhan Akhtar," the tweet read.

A thrilled Bose took to Instagram to announce the news with fans through a detailed post.

'The Sky Is Pink' marks the Bollywood comeback of Chopra after a break of three years. The film is based on the life of Aisha Chaudhary, who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with an immune deficiency order at the age of 13. It also sheds light on the love story of her parents.

It is co-produced by Priyanka, Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur, and will hit the big screens on October 11.

Priyanka last appeared in Hollywood film 'Isn't It Romantic', starring Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth, and Adam DeVine.

Farhan, on the other hand, is currently prepping for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's 'Toofan', in which he will be essaying the role of a boxer.
