India, Aug. 20 -- Remember Siddharth from 'Wake up Sid' (played by Ranbir Kapoor), his hobby of clicking photographs and his struggle to discover his true identity? Remember Farhan from '3 Idiots' (played by R Madhvan), his love for wildlife photography and his hesitation in freely telling his parents that he wanted to pursue it as a career?
