Rohit Saraf: Walking TIFF red carpet for 'The Sky Is Pink' was surreal

Mumbai: "The Sky Is Pink" actor Rohit Saraf feels overwhelmed with all the love being showered upon the film, adding that he is proud to be part of such an honest film.

"It's been phenomenal. The kind of love we've received for first, the trailer and then at the (Toronto) premiere, has been really overwhelming. It's times like these when you really feel inspired to want to push the boundaries," Rohit said.

Shonali Bose's "The Sky Is Pink" is about a couple that loses their daughter to pulmonary fibrosis, a serious immune disease. The film stars Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. The film had its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

"This was the first time I walked the red carpet and it was surreal to see people screaming my name, waiting to take a photo with me. This experience was humbling and encouraging in equal measures. I've held this project so close my heart from the word go and I always believed that whoever watches it would have something that they'd resonate with. Now that I'm seeing people more than just accepting it, I'm so so proud that we've made an honest film," he added.
