After a gap of four years, Priyanka Chopra made her Bollywood comeback with Shonali Bose's 'The Sky Is Pink' which released in theatres on Friday (October 11, 2019). The film also stars Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf.
'The Sky Is Pink' is based on the true story of Aisha Chaudhary, who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. Zaira plays Aisha in the film while Priyanka and Farhan essay the role of her parents. While the film opened to good reviews from the critics, it began its journey at the box office on a slow note. According to a report in Box Office India, the film minted approximately Rs 2.50 crore on the first day of its release.
Meanwhile, here's how the netizens reacted on social media after watching the film.
