Wayne R,a representative of TIFF took to Twitter and wrote, “The way Shonali Bose shot the film and used flashbacks effectively added more depth to the film. Also having the daughter narrates the film added another layer of connection to her. At the end of the film #TheSkyIsPink is received a standing ovation from the audience.”
He also shared his experience of listening to members of the Chaudhary family at the festival as the story is based on the life of Aisha Chaudhary, played by Zaira Wasim in the film.
“Amazing to hear from the Chaudhary family today which is whom #TheSkyIsPink is based. Deep, emotional film about family fighting to keep their daughter alive due to a health condition. @priyankachopra was outstanding and @FarOutAkhtar was great too. You will cry,” he tweeted.
