Konkona Sen Sharma is not the typical Bollywood heroine who does lots of dancing and shows off her body wearing short dresses. An immensely talented actress, Konkona Sen Sharma mostly appeared in art films. In her upcoming movie, Wake UP Sid, Konkona plays the role of Aisha Bannerjee, an ambitious hardworking girl, who left her family in Kolkata to work in a reputed newspaper ‘Mumbai Beat’ in Mumbai. The two time National Award winner is paired up with Ranbir Kapoor.
In reality, Konkona is older and more experienced than Ranbir Kapoor which led many critics to believe that the pair is mismatch but it looks totally opposite. Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona looked just great on the screen and Konkona also enjoyed working with Ranbir. The Times of India reports:
Her dark brown eyes light up when she speaks of her young co-star Ranbir who she says is “very talented, chivalrous and an absolute delight to work with’’. Rewinding to five years ago, when she set foot in B-town having already won international acclaim for her mother, Aparna Sen’s Mr & Mrs Iyer, Koko admits that she’s now well settled in Mumbai. “I have made several friends and I’m fortunate to be doing some good work,’’ she says.
Wake UP Sid is a romantic movie. Directed by Ayan Mukherjee, the movie has a similar story to that of Lakshya starring Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta. Ranbir Kapoor played the role of Sidharth Mehra, a carefree young man who comes from a well off family. Sidharth just finished his college and enjoying his life by hanging around with his two close friends Rishi and Laxmi and playing his Xbox360. Despite his carefree nature, Siddharth is an honest young man. Sidharth then meets Aisha, who is the total opposite of Siddharth. The two falls in love and it changes their lives forever.
