Wayne R, the representative of TIFF, praised the film to heights. He took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, "The way Shonali Bose shot the film and used flashbacks effectively added more depth to the film. Also having the daughter narrates the film added another layer of connection to her. At the end of the film #TheSkyIsPink is received a standing ovation from the audience."

It was an emotional night for Priyanka. The lady got teary-eyes and was seen hugging Shonali. The actress looked beautiful in a grey-and-black frill dress. Her husband Nick Jonas couldn't attend the event but he made sure to congratulate his lady love on social media.
The Sky Is Pink revolves around a girl played by Zaira suffering from pulmonary fibrosis. She narrates the story of her parents dealing with her illness. The young actress looked promising in the trailer. However, it is indeed sad that she has left the industry.
On a related note, the film is all set to hit the screens on October 11.
