The Sky Is Pink is making noise of all the right reasons. But before hitting the screens on October 11, the film starring Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf is set have a premiere today at TIFF. Yesterday, we brought to you The Sky Is Pink director Shonali Bose’s story, what made her draw to direct the film. The filmmaker had revealed that it was her son Ishaan’s death and broken marriage that drew her to make the film.

As the film is set to have premiere today, director Shonali Bose took to social media and posted heartfelt note on her son’s 9th anniversary. Captioning the photo, she wrote, “My heart. My Ishlu.,Your 9th deathday today. I was at a big event for The Sky is Pink at the Toronto International Film Festival and spoke a lot about death and what you taught me from the day of your funeral. How you enlightened me and made me understand its profundity and how you made me so at ease with it.”

The caption further read, “I can’t thank you enough for continuing to watch over me and hold me in the palm of your hand. And knowing how I’m so consumerist and need gifts on important occasions - you always come through on that too! This time you’ve given me the World Premier. I know you’ll bless it and it will be fine. And there will be love, light and a beautiful energy in the room. Your energy. Aisha’s energy. Mamma’s energy...I’m still terrified. 2,000 people. I’m excited too. Viv is taking an arduous journey to be with me and hold my hand while you hold the both of us. Happy 9th deathday my darling. Will be breaking out the bubbly to celebrate. Love you. Your Mamma.”
