Publisher's Summary

This episode features Ayan Mukerji, anecdotes from Ranbir Kapoor and the making-of story of Wake Up Sid. The thing about coming-of-age films is that they frequently appear lighter and breezier than they are. In 2009, two years after his debut in Saawariya, Ranbir Kapoor played a happy-go-lucky directionless drifter in Wake Up Sid. It was a charming performance that captured all the beats of youthful innocence, the excitement of discovering oneself and the novelty of recognizing love. The film’s writer-director Ayan Mukerji, only 25 at the time, had successfully and honestly captured a time, and place, and mood that was both specific, and yet felt oddly universal to the generation he was representing on screen. All of us know someone like Sid, or even Aisha, the bright-eyed outsider with big dreams, played by Konkona Sensharma. Ten years later, Wake Up Sid has lost little of its appeal. Much of that you could attribute to Ranbir’s endearing, enduring performance and because a character like Sid and his dilemma never gets old.
