Global icon Priyanka Chopra is back in her city, as she is busy promoting her upcoming release, The Sky Is Pink. Recently in an interview to a news agency for her promotions, she shared her plans on trying her hands into direction, post her successful production ventures. Priyanka after impressing all with her acting power in both Bollywood and Hollywood, also paved her own path as a producer with her production company in India, Purple Pebble Pictures. Now, the multi talented global superstar expressed her wish about venturing into direction.
Talking about whether she would like to direct a movie someday, Priyanka said, that it’s something that makes her nervous because it’s a lot of responsibility. But slowly, like she moved from acting to production, hopefully someday she will make that transition and try direction too.
Talking about her collaborating for the second time with a women director Shonali Bose, for The Sky Is Pink, she said, that she doesn’t think gender defines anything. As women and men are capable or as incapable as their merit makes them. Further praising her director, Priyanka added, that working with Shonali was her honour, as she is an incredible filmmaker and her gender doesn’t define that. Priyanka humorously added, that she doesn’t think that ones estrogen changes the kind of films that one make. Thus she thinks that Shonali is an incredible filmmaker and the kind of stories that she has told and will continue telling, will define Indian cinema.
Priyanka currently is on a promotional spree, who was seen last night at the Mumbai airport, returning after promoting her film in Jaipur, Ahmedabad and Delhi on the occasion of Navaratri. The Sky Is Pink also stars Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf in pivotal roles. The film is a biographical drama which is based on the life of Aisha Chaudhary, who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 13. It is collaboratively produced by Purple Pebble Pictures, Roy Kapur Films and RSVP Movies, which is all set to release on October 11.
