April 8, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): The release of the upcoming Hindi movie Milenge Milenge now depends on Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor. Producer Boney Kapoor met her for the publicity of the film before she left for Goa to shoot for Ra.1.
Shahid Kapoor has done his bit. Now it’s up to Kareena Kapoor to see when their pending film Milenge Milenge is released.
Shahid shot the music video for the film with choreographer on March 26 with Ahmed Khan. The track written by Sameer Anjaan and composed by Himesh Reshammiya goes…. Sab kuch khatam hokar bhi tere mere darmiyaan kuch to baki hai…
And now Boney waits not-so-patiently for Kareena to do the needful.
Says Boney, “Yes, now the release would depend entirely on when Kareena allots the dates to shoot the music video. I’ve slotted the release for the last week of June or the first week of July. I’m hopeful that Bebo’s portions of the music video and other publicity footage would be shot and ready. So yes the release is now in Bebo’s hands.”
Kareena, who is in Goa doesn’t quite share Shahid’s enthusiasm for the publicity and marketing of Milenge Milenge.
Boney doesn’t deny he met Kareena over the matter. “But she made it clear she was willing to co-operate in every way. Let’s put this way. I don’t want to put Bebo under any discomfort. She’s a girl I’ve watched grow in front of my eyes and I’m very protective of her.”
Boney insists it’s a marketing strategy to feature Shahid and Kareena separately in the promotional video. However, the fact of the matter is, Kareena for whatever reasons of her own decided not to do any collaborative marketing of Milenge Milenge with Shahid.
And her space as a woman and a professional must be respected.
When told that that perhaps the other-half of the Milenge Milenge pair was not willing to do collaborative publicity Shahid reacted with annoyance. “Arrey yaar I’m all for the film. I’m willing to do whatever Boneyji asks me to. I don’t know about the rest.”
