When opening a file with SIP messages, my wireshark does not display the SIP messages. SIP is listed in enabled protocols.

There is not enough information available to determine what the issue is. There could be many causes (traffic is on a "protected" Wi-Fi network so Wireshark would need the password to encrypt it, the traffic is on a non-standard port, the traffic is over TLS etc.), so we'd have to see the capture file to answer the question.

Thanks Gary for your comment. Actually it is not a problem with capture, it is an issue with my display. When I am opening a file with SIP messages, it does not display them as separate SIP protocol messages, it is showing within TCP. not sure how can I attach a file here. When I try to attach, it says >60 points required.

Put the capture file on a public share (Google, Dropbox, OneDrive, ...) then update your question with a link to the file.

Here is the link to pcap file - it should be accessible. Thanks

Capture file indeed looks fine, showing SIP messages. Can you go and select a different profile in Wireshark and see what changes.
