The filmmaker Shonali Bose, who returns to the big screen after Margarita with a Straw, revealed in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, that there was one moment during the filming of The Sky Is Pink when PeeCee broke down and couldn't stop crying. Remembering the shoot, Bose revealed that there was an emotional scene shot for the film. While she did not delve into the details of the scene, she remembered PeeCee breaking down in the scene and continued to weep long after she announced "cut."
"Another emotional shoot was when she had to break down after a scene. After I called “cut”, I hugged her and she couldn’t stop crying. She kept whispering, “I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry. I know now what it means to lose a child. I am so sorry for Ishlu.” I continued holding her," she told Mumbai Mirror. For the unversed, Ishlu mentioned in the statement is referred to Bose's son, Ishan, who died in 2013.
