May 3, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor has decided to finally release It’s My Life, the only pending film of Harman Baweja. Directed by Anees Bazmee It’s My Life is a remake of a super-hit Telugu Film Bomarrillu, the film has been ready for nearly a year. The release date has been repeatedly announced and cancelled, the most recent being July 23, 2010.
Says Boney, “Harman himself is partly to blame for the delay. I wish he hadn’t given priority to his other two films Victory and It’s My Raashee. If he had listened to me and focused on It’s My Life, he’d have had a super-hit on his hand.”
Riding high prior to the release of his debut film Love Story 2050 Harman gave out his dates to Ajit Pal’s Victory and Ashutosh Gowariker’s What’s Your Raashee and wanted It’s My Life to come after these. The gambit had not gone down well with the sensitive Boney Kapoor. He had decided to put It’s My Life on the backburner, his logic being, “If the project is not important enough to the hero it isn’t important for me either.”
But now, Boney is in a more charitable mood. Apparently, he has been negotiating with a large corporate house Sahara for a tie-up release.
The Hindi movie Milenge Milenge, is another film by Boney Kapoor that is to release in the last week of June or the first week of July.
“I’ll release It’s My Life right after Milenge Milenge,” says Boney.
But the question is, when does Milenge Milenge release? It’s scheduled for the last week of June or the first week of July. But the time that Kareena Kapoor promised to allot for the promotional video and photo-shoot has still not materialized.
Says Boney, “I needed to get Shahid’s video in place. Now all I need from Kareena is 5-6 hours. She has promised she would give me the time.”
But when? It looks like Harman Baweja will once again have to look towards Kareena for support. Remember she was supposed to play the female lead opposite him in his debut film but had backed out after a few days’ shooting. Now until Kareena gives dates for the promotional material in Milenge Mienge, Harman’s only film remains stuck.
