For all Priyanka Chopra fans who have been waiting for her to do a Bollywood film, can finally rejoice as her Hindi film with Farhan Akhtar is finally on floors today. 

Sharing a couple of pictures from a set in Mumbai, Priyanka was seen happy with Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim (Secret Superstar fame), Siddharth Roy Kapur and others, all gathered together to kickstart shooting for Shonali Bose’s next titled The Sky Is Pink. 

Priyanka captioned the post: “I’m so excited and happy about today..Some stories just need to be told. In the spirit of Aisha Chaudhry and her incredible parents Aditi and Niren we bring you our tentatively titled super special project The Sky is pink. Going on floors today. God Speed.  @rsvpmovies @roykapurfilms @faroutakhtar @shonalibose_ @zairawasim_.”

On an earlier occasion, Priyanka spoke on the film and said, “I look forward to diving into this film…It’s very special to me. As soon I read it, I knew I had to be a part of telling this story, so I’m wearing two hats on this one… as an actor and as a co-producer. In both aspects, I am equally excited to work with the amazing team of actors and technicians we have on board. Shonali is a formidable filmmaker and I can’t wait to see this story unfold in her expertise. I’m looking forward to working with Farhan, Ronnie and Sid again. All in all, it’s a great homecoming.”

The Sky Is Pink is based on the life of Aisha Choudhary, a young motivational speaker who was diagnosed with immune deficiency disorder as an infant. Aisha succumbed to her illness and died at the age of 19. In the film, Zaira will play the girl, Priyanka and Farhan will play her parents. 

The film is produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur. 

Priyanka will be coming back to the Hindi film industry with this film -- after a gap of two years. Earlier, she was supposed to do a Salman Khan film titled Bharat, from which walked out owing to personal reasons. However, Salman opened up on the actual reason and said this. Katrina Kaif has now been roped to replace Priyanka in the lead.
