Wake Up Sid fans were in for a small treat as Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sensharma reunited as Sid and Aisha for a lovely new advertisement.

Its been 15 years since Wake Up Sid released in theatres. When BTS pictures from a recent shoot with Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sensharma emerged online a few days ago, may fans thought something is cooking. A sequel to the Ayan Mukerji film? Unfortunately, that was not in the cards. The two stars reprised their roles from the film for a brand new advertisement for the phone brand, OPPO.

Sid wakes up in Goa!

The advertisement begins with Sid and Aisha, who have now shifted to Goa. Aisha now works here for a magazine, and they live together. Ranbir's character Sid is busy with locating all the packages but the AC is not working. He says, “Ek toh Goa mein itni garmi upar se main bhi itna hot (Goa is so hot nowadays but so am I)!” Konkona's Aisha opens the veranda door, and says it will help for cross-ventilation. His friends Rishi and Laxmi are also here. While Laxmi has her eyes fixed on the basket of mangoes that Sid's mother has sent, Rishi is busy soaking in the sun. Sid picks up the new phone and clicks pictures- like always- and the short ends there.
