Taking about the film, Priyanka said,“It is always my favorite to screen my movies in Toronto. It is one of my special films. My first film that I came to Toronto with was about 10 years ago. So there are many full circles that are coming in. Standing here with this team, each one of them having so much faith in a movie that is so special and poignant. Shonali and her vision is the one thing that drew each one of us.”

My heart. My Ishlu.,Your 9th deathday today. I was at a big event for The Sky is Pink at the Toronto International Film Festival and spoke a lot about death and what you taught me from the day of your funeral. How you enlightened me and made me understand its profundity and how you made me so at ease with it. I can’t thank you enough for continuing to watch over me and hold me in the palm of your hand. And knowing how I’m so consumerist and need gifts on important occasions - you always come through on that too! This time you’ve given me the World Premier. I know you’ll bless it and it will be fine. And there will be love, light and a beautiful energy in the room. Your energy. Aisha’s energy. Mamma’s energy...I’m still terrified. 2,000 people. I’m excited too. Viv is taking an arduous journey to be with me and hold my hand while you hold the both of us. Happy 9th deathday my darling. Will be breaking out the bubbly to celebrate. Love you. Your Mamma.
Making news for all the right reasons, we are really looking forward to watching this beautiful movie! You should too!
