All work and no sleep! - Ranbir Kapoor
Ranbir may project the lazy boy image in Wake Up Sid, but he hasn't been allowed to slack off on the promotions. He had to leave for the schedule of Prakash Jha's Rajniti, so he only had four days to promote Wake Up Sid and shoot a promotional track for the film as well. This resulted in intense, sleepless nights. All work and no play for three nights may make Ranbir a cranky boy!
The promotional track of Wake Up Sid was shot over three nights at Madh Island and Ranbir was wide awake through the duration, except for the occasional power nap.
Our source from the sets of Wake Up Sid said, "Ranbir used to report on the sets everyday at 6 pm. Then he gave some promotional interviews for the film before shooting for the video. He shot for three entire nights without getting any sleep. He used to reach home at 7am and then launch into promotional activities for the film the entire day. So, in these four days and three nights, Ranbir must have hardly slept for three-four hours overall."
Ranbir had to be available for the aggressive promotion a film requires. His director Ayaan Mukherjee explained, "The problem was that Ranbir was to leave for a 45-day schedule of Rajniti on a certain date and we realised that he just had three nights and four days for us. We needed to shoot the promotional track and also needed him to do lot of promotional activities in this time. It included TV interviews, promotional photo shoots, magazine cover shoots and of course, the shooting. We also wanted him to dub certain portions. He was a great sport and he behaved like a super hero. The only thing that annoyed him was jumping in a pool (for the music video) which he hates, as he is not a water person at all. But he managed to do all that with little or no sleep."
