The Sky Is Pink

The Sky Is Pink is a 2019 Indian Hindi-language biographical romantic comedy-drama film written and directed by Shonali Bose and produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur, Ronnie Screwvala and Priyanka Chopra Jonas under their production companies Roy Kapur Films, RSVP Movies, and Purple Pebble Pictures, respectively, in association with Ivanhoe Pictures. The film stars Chopra Jonas, Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Suresh Saraf, and is based on the true story of Aisha Chaudhary, who suffered from severe combined immunodeficiency and pulmonary fibrosis, and tells the story of her parents Aditi and Niren as they navigate their marriage while dealing with their daughter's illness.


Aisha Chaudhary narrates the story of her parents Moose (her mother) and Panda (her father) from the afterlife. Aditi Chaudhary and Niren are a young couple who come from different backgrounds; Aditi is from a salubrious suburb in South Delhi whereas Niren is from a grounded middle-class family. The couple are in love and have "an active sex life", according to Aisha's narration. The couple get married and Aditi becomes pregnant with their first child Tanya Chaudhary, who dies within months of her birth due to the severe combined immunodeficiency condition. Baby Tanya was frequently ill and, while Aditi was convinced it was a serious issue, Niren dismissed it as trivial. Niren believed negligence was the reason Tanya could not be treated sooner and blamed himself for the death of his child. As Aditi mourned the death of her child, she was consoled by a Catholic nun and decided to be baptized.
