Priyanka Chopra has had a pretty busy time over the past year, what with getting married to husband Nick Jonas and landing a brand new movie deal with Netflix, but shes also had time to make her return to Bollywood as both a performer and co-producer.
Ahead of premiering her new film The Sky Is Pink at the Toronto International Film Festival, Priyanka – who makes her return to Bollywood after three years and also gets her first credit as a co-producer on the movie – has shared how she was drawn to the project as to was something that she knew had to be done.

A Sky Is Pink is based on the real-life story of Aisha Chaudhary, who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 13 and traces the love story of her parents as told through their daughters eyes. Priyanka Chopra plays the role of Aditi Chaudhary, a mental health therapist and Aishas mother.
