When she returned to the ‘Gram on Wednesday, she expressed gratitude to her fans and her followers for sending love and good wishes on her birthday.
“Hi everyone! Thank you so much for all the wonderful birthday messages and wishes… You have made my day extremely special,” she wrote on her Instagram stories. “Sorry I haven’t responded earlier, was taking a bit of a break from technology… But now I’m back and I just want to say ‘Thank you all so much’. I hope everyone feels as loved as I do,” she posted, along with a series of emojis.
Priyanka’s film The Sky Is Pink, helmed by Shonali Bose, will have its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 13. It is a love story of a couple — Aditi and Niren Chaudhary — spanning 25 years, told through the lens of their spunky teenage daughter — Aisha Chaudhary, who was diagnosed with a terminal illness.
