Priyanka Chopra has been missing in action even sine her last Bollywood project in 2016. She went on to make her mark in Hollywood and featured in hit thriller series Quantico and delivered movies like Baywatch and Isn’t It Romantic. And after a long gap of 3 years, she is returning back to the silver screens with Shonali Bose’s The Sky is Pink.
The trailer of the film released yesterday and has been well received by the audience and fans. While many have lauded the emotional aspect and convincing performances by the star cast, many fans expressed their excitement to see PeeCee back in the movies. However, a particular scene from the trailer has caught the attention of Maharashtra Police and urged them to post a warning against the leading cast of the film.
Besides Priyanka, the film also stars Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in the lead roles. And a scene from the trailer sees the actress telling her husband (played by Farhan in the film) that they will loot a bank as soon as their sick daughter (played by Zaira) gets better.
Reacting to the scene, the Maharashtra Police tweeted, "Seven years imprisonment with fine under IPC Section 393 #ColoursOfLaw #TheSkyIsPink @priyankachopra @FarOutAkhtar."
In no time, Priyanka and Farhan replied to the tweet in the most quirky manner. While the actress wrote, "Oops caught red handed time to activate Plan B @FarOutAkhtar! #TheSkyIsPink”, her partner in crime and co-star wrote, “Hahaha never planning heists on camera again @priyankachopra #TheSkyIsPinkTrailer."
This fun banter between the stars and the Mumbai Police grabbed eyeballs and netizens poured in their comments in no time.
