The Sky Is Pink: Shonali Bose Reveals Loss Of Her Son And A Broken Marriage Propelled Her To Make The Film

Priyanka Chopra is making her comeback to Bollywood with Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink, trailer of which was dropped, a day before today. The trailer, which stars Priyanka along with Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf, is raving wide appreciation by one and all. But its quirky plot has gained attention of movie buffs like never before. During a recent conversation, The Sky Is Pink director Shonali Bose revealed what made her dive into the direction The Sky Is Pink. She said, because she herself had dealt with a broken marriage and the loss of his son.

During her and Priyanka’s interaction with Variety at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), she revealed that the girl Ayesha Chaudhary, on whom the film is based, had watched the trailer of Shonali’s Margarita With A Straw starring Kalki Koechlin 30 times and was wanted to watch the film. But unfortunately, Ayesha couldn’t survive till the release of the film. But when Ayesha’s parents went to watch Margarita With A Straw they realised that it was dedicated to Bose’s son, Ishaan.

Revealing the further story, Shonali said that it took Ayesha’s parents 6 months to track the director and when they finally met her, and Ayesha’s mother Aditi Chaudhary burst out saying, ‘I’ve lost my child and I want only one filmmaker in the world to tell her story because I loved your film, it was her (Ayesha's) dying wish to see your film, and you’ve lost a child.’”

Gumnaami: Press conference for Srijit Mukherji's film on Netaji to be held at Simla Byayam Samity
Srijit Mukherji has become synonymous with innovation in the Bangla film industry. From his choice of films to actors, the word 'ordinary' has no place in his dictionary. And he is certainly pulling out all stops when it comes to Gumnaami, his film on the mystery surrounding the 'death' of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Three days after the trailer launch of Gumnaami, the cast and crew of the film are set to hold a press conference not at any five-star hotel, but at the historic Simla Byayam Samity. 

Check out the trailer of Gumnaami:



"Thematic integration is an important part of all my films. Last year we launched Uma at Shobhabazar Rajbari. Durga Puja was pivotal to Uma, and Shobhabazar Rajbari is a venue steeped in the traditions of Durga Puja," says Srijit. Keeping the streak of innovation and thematic integration running, Simla Byayam Samity was chosen as the press conference venue of Gumnaami. In the words of Srijit Mukherji, "My film is based on the disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Netaji is intimately linked with the history of Simla Byayam Samity. The venue was chosen keeping that connection in mind. Also, Simla Byayam Samity organises one of the oldest Durga Pujas of Kolkata. My film is a Durga Puja release." 

Simla Byayam Samity was founded in 1926 by Atindra Nath Bosu. It was a gymnasium which also provided facilities for wrestling and fighting. The Durga Puja was started the same year. The Samity was run by one of Netaji's close companions Amar Bosu, who was Atindra Nath's eldest son. Along with other political figures connected to India's freedom struggle, Netaji was a regular visitor at the Samity. No wonder then that the hallowed Samity has been chosen by Team Gumnaami.
