Farhan Akhtar will be seen sharing screen space with Priyanka Chopra in The Sky Is Pink, directed by Shonali Bose.
As the film gets closer to releasing on October 11, Indian Express talked to Farhan about how he thinks his and Priyanka’s characters “are an extension of Sunny and Ayesha of Dil Dhadakne Do”, and much more.
Here are excerpts from the interview:
Q. You and Priyanka have acted together in Dil Dhadakne Do, and the audience has loved your chemistry. Did you let that chemistry spill into The Sky Is Pink as well, or you had to make a conscious effort to approach your characters differently?
We choose from what is being offered to us. It is an amazing feeling when people still talk about Dil Dhadakne Do, and they talk about the relationship that Sunny and Ayesha and their chemistry. This film is somehow an extension of that. You have two characters from Dil Dhadakne Do, who absolutely love each other, you have two characters in The Sky Is Pink, Niren and Aditi, who absolutely love each other. This is actually how it would be if Sunny and Ayesha did get married.
Q. Since you and Priyanka have worked together several times, in various capacities, how does it feel seeing Priyanka’s upward career graph?
I look at her career with immense amount of happiness, joy and with a sense of pride. She has worked really hard to get to where she is. When people speak about luck, I always say that luck only favours people who are willing to work hard. It is then that things come together. You will end up meeting the right people, you will be at the right place at the right time only if you work hard, otherwise it won’t happen.
She has always had the spirit to go out there and get what she wants, to improve herself as a professional, as an artist, and that is something that has just made her grow from where she started to where she is today. I still believe that there is a lot more for her to do, we are still in the process of seeing her evolution, and I wish her the best, and hope she gets everything her heart desires, because I know she will work hard for it.
