The iconic climatic scene in Wake Up Sid was absolutely magical. It was shot at the very famous Marine Drive against the rains and waves just adding on to the beauty. Marine Drive is a very famous location that has been seen in multiple movies including Munnabhai MBBS and Ok Jaanu.

It takes place under a small bridge in Dharavi which the team of Gully Boy found after a lot of research.
