Bollywood fans got excited when a video featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma went viral a few days ago, sparking discussions about Wake Up Sid 2. However, their hopes were crushed when it was revealed that the video was just an ad, not a teaser for the anticipated sequel. Ranbir and Konkona have reunited after almost 15 years and the latest advertisement brought back some core Wake Up Sid memories.
In the ad, Sid moves to Goa with Ayesha, just like in the original film where he introduced her to Mumbai. As they settle into their new home, Sid feels a bit unsure about them shifting to Goa, but the love of friends, his wife Ayesha, and a thoughtful gift from his father, the Oppo Reno 11 Pro, help him feel at ease. Towards the end of the ad, Konkona made a bread and jam cake for Ranbir, just how Sid made for Aisha in the film. The title ‘Sid wakes up in Goa’ features at the beginning of the ad.
Although fans were happy to see the film’s team reunited, they were disappointed that the actors wouldn’t be sharing the screen in a new movie together. One of the fans wrote, “The song at the end just made me tear up. God so many memories just flashed back.” Another commented, “They look so good together! Miss the old days! Also, how has Konkona not aged a day.”
Opening up about the collaboration, Ranbir Kapoor said, “This has been an exciting project, rarely you see brands trying to take a detour from the conventional route and this work has been very different and interesting. It will surely bring a smile on people’s face.”
On the work front, Ranbir was recently seen in the blockbuster film Animal. Helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the movie, also starring Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna in pivotal roles, earned over Rs 900 crore at the worldwide box office.
