Karan Johar's decision to star Konkona as the lead actress for Wake up Sid surprised many. It was hard to picture Koko romancing the dashing Ranbir Kapoor. Previously, Ranbir was seen sharing screen with notable Bollywood beauties like Deepika, Sonam, and Bipasha.  So then what's the story behind Wake up Sid? The movie revolves around a good looking guy (Ranbir) who falls for an older, simple woman (Konkona).
All as working well on the sets of Wake up Sid until the creators of the film, Dharma productions, felt their actress was not looking her best.  After all, size zero is the fashion these days. So, they politely requested her to re-shoot some scenes, but a furious Konkona refused to re-shoot them. She proudly declared that they will get her just the way she is.
The 24 year old director Ayan Mukherji (Rani Mukherji's cousin) had no choice but to continue with what they had.

Good For Her!Smart Woman Konkona! She stood her ground and gave them an emphatic NO! Love her self-esteem and pride in herself as a woman!

It is a very sad day when being a zero is more important than the talent and character of the actor. Obviously, they knew what she looked like when they hired her. Obviously, they knew what she would look like on film when they shot the first frame with her. If they had reservations -as baseless and stupid as they are! - the producers should have voiced them then! So proud of Konkona that she did not give in to some awful, moronic notion of what they think a woman is supposed to look like.

I am glad that Koko stood her ground.

What good is a movie if its has someone who is size zero but can hardly act?

Height of sycophancy must say!

Koko''s a very good actress and I am sure the movie will be great. IN fact, I liked her a lot in Luck By Chance. Even Rishi Kapoor had mentioned that he would love to work with her, cos she''s simply superb.

Ahsu-n-Sush - your comments are spot on. Kareena only won award for Jab We Met because she did not have any competition for best actress that year. Definitely overacted in that film. Will KJO ask his mum to be a size zero?
