Priyanka’s The Sky Is Pink Box office letdown

Priyanka Chopra & Farhan Akhtar’s The Sky Is Pink released on Friday and unfortunately (for the film) the War box office dominance ft. Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff is still on. War has been rewriting history daily at the box office & it has become the game of numbers for the film.

From highest opening day to highest week 1 (extended), it’s not just shattering records, it’s creating them. Amidst all of this, a very sweet film The Sky Is Pink released along with Will Smith’s Gemini Man. Whereas the latter will hardly find any buyers, but Priyanka, Farhan’s film will target its audience.

As per the early trends flowing in the movie has earned in the range of 2.50-3.50 crores. This, by no means, is a remarkable feat but it shows it has the scope to rise further on the weekend. 

It’s to be seen how well War performs and dent the business of The Sky Is Pink.

Nick recently reviewed the film and said, “This film touched my heart in so many ways. The story is bold and beautiful and told perfectly by this incredible cast and by Shonali Bose’s direction. Priyanka Chopra, I am so proud of your work as both an actor and producer in this film.”

The Sky is Pink had received a standing ovation at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it premiered, and has been praised by several Bollywood celebrities. 

Priyanka also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to promote the film. The Sky is Pink has become the first Hindi film to be promoted on the US TV show.

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 has been directed by Shonali Bose and stars Zaira Wasim as Aisha and Rohit Saraf as her onscreen brother.    —Koimoi
