Wake up call for Konkona-Ranbir !!!
Screen’s lensman captured Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma on his shutterbug as they shot for the print publicity of Wake Up Sid at the sea-wind-swept Marine Drive in Mumbai recently. Ranbir is very kicked about this urban film that has him playing the laidback character of Sid, a lazy collegian, who has no clue what he wants to do with his life. Then in walks an aspiring writer, Aisha, (Konkona Sen Sharma) from Kolkata who is a complete contrast to him… older, wiser and in charge of her life. Both actors admit that it was 25-year-old director Ayan Mukerji’s enthusiasm and his unconventional subject that prompted them to do the film.
Ranbir Kapoor is also shooting for the promotional video of Wake Up Sid. The song, being choreographed by Bosco Caesar, will be picturised only on Ranbir Kapoor sans Konkona, his love interest in the film. Shot over four days, one at Filmistan Studios and three at Madh Island, Mumbai, the song is rather simple and unlike the usual promotional music videos. It has been conceptualised keeping in mind Ranbir’s character, Sid, who is laidback and aimless. “There is no drama in the song. It is an extension of the film, and I have used very cool and funky moves, somewhat like John Travolta’s,” elaborates Bosco. The backdrop of the number is Ranbir’s bachelor pad where he chills out with his friends. He dons casual clothes like the jeans and tees he wears in the film. The music is by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
Interestingly Ranbir says that he does not really identify with his character, Sid. He asserts that he always knew that he wanted to be actor. Wake Up Sid is produced by Karan Johar, who has also tied up with Bollywood Hungama to launch video blogs related to the film. As part of the initiative, two blogs, one featuring Ranbir and the other Karan, are already up on the portal. Further, among themselves, the duo along with leading lady Konkona Sen Sharma and debutante director Ayan Mukerji, will post a minimum of two blog entries per week till the film’s release and perhaps a few afterwards. The guest feedback that the medium offers is what makes video blogging about the film a great option, according to Ranbir Kapoor.<img src=http://www.orkut-scrap.net/img/Animated-Dolls/1.gif >
