A couple of hours back, Priyanka shared a picture with her friends on Karva Chauth at the Jonas Brothers concert.

Meanwhile, Nick too flaunted his global icon wife’s cultural ethics as he shared pictures on Karva Chauth dressed in traditional Indian attire. He captioned the post, “My wife is Indian. She is Hindu, and she is incredible in every way. She has taught me so much about her culture and religion. I love and admire her so much, and as you can see we have fun together. Happy Karva Chauth to everyone! (sic).”
On the professional front, Priyanka’s latest Hindi release, The Sky Is Pink, has been well received by critics and fans alike even though it is struggling at the Box Office. Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink is based on the real-life story of Aisha Chaudhary and her parents, who fought their daughter’s rare medical condition called pulmonary fibrosis. The film focuses on the love story of the parents (Priyanka and Farhan) spanning 25 years which is narrated by their teenage daughter – Aisha (Zaira). Aisha becomes a motivational speaker before passing away due to pulmonary fibrosis at a young age.
The Sky is Pink marks the Bollywood comeback of Priyanka after a pause of almost three years. It is co-produced by Priyanka, Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur. It got a standing ovation from the audience when it was screened at the Toronto Film Festival on September 13.
Up next, Priyanka Chopra will be seen opposite Rajkummar Rao for the first time in a Netflix film, The White Tiger. The film is based on Aravind Adiga’s prize-winning book by the same name. Both Priyanka and Rajkummar will be headlining the film and the shooting will begin by the end of this year.
Apart from starring in the film, Priyanka also joins the team as the executive producer. Netflix produces the film in association with Mukul Deora while director Bahrani also writes the screenplay. The White Tiger follows the extraordinary journey of a self-made man from a tea-shop worker in a village to a successful entrepreneur in a big city.
