Ok, so the makers of ‘Milenge Milenge’ have led everyone to believe that their film is a success. While some may argue that how a film that nets just a little over 10 crores in its first week could be termed as a success in today’s time, especially since it stars top players like Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, producer Boney Kapoor has a strong reasoning. After all, the film was made on a medium budget half a decade back and even if one counted the interest, the ROI (return on investment) has been gladdening.

The resounding success of Tere Bin Laden has taken Bollywood by storm. Not many from the industry expected this modest experiment to capture the hearts of the audiences all over the country! Weary as they are of the same old formulas hashed over and over again by producers unwilling to take risks, audiences are thronging to the multiplexes to catch this little indie gem from the production house Walkwater Media.
Milenge Milenge, the much delayed movie of Boney Kapoor, has brought a smile to his face as the satellite rights of the film have fetched Rs 8.6 crore.
It is definitely good news for the producer, who had been facing a lot of problems regarding the film. Boney signed the lead actors Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor for the film in 2004, when Shahid was only four films old.
Recently, a special show of the film ‘Mr. Singh Mrs. Mehta’ was held in PVR Cinemas, Juhu, Mumbai. For this special show, the film’s heroine, Aruna Shields specially flew back to India as she was abroad. Aruna, has been much in discussion on account of her controversial nude scenes in the film.
“I keep my professional life separate from my personal life”, we have heard this statement from the Bollywood stars quite often. So, how much do they mean it? It has become a cliché just like “we are just friends”.
So, as soon as they make the faux pas, we know how much to believe. Link ups and break ups are everyday news in the tinsel town; some survive, while the rest wither away. Bollywood can boast of some of the best movies, which included some iconic couples onscreen, who were the same couple off screen too. But as said, ‘love is blind’, hence our star couples remain blind to the gossips about them.
After along gap, ex-lovers Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor will come together on July 9 to promote their much delayed film Milenge Milenge. The movie has been produced by Boney Kapoor, who is desperately trying to bring both the actors together since long.
Boney has decided to go ahead with the movie without the diva Kareena Kapoor, who has been stalling the movie for long.
Milenge Milenge starring Shahid and Kareena is giving Boney Kapoor a tough time. The break up between this Kapoor duo is messing up the promotional video and giving sleepless nights to the director. Shahid and Kareena may have ended their relationship on a bad note, but surprisingly, their last hit Jab We Met mesmerized the audiences and gathered accolades for the pair. Milenge Milenge will see this ex couple together on screen for the first time after their break up.
The release of Milenge Milenge now depends on Kareena Kapoor. Producer Boney Kapoor met her for the publicity of the film before she left for Goa to shoot for Ra.One.
Shahid Kapoor has done his bit. Now it’s up to Kareena Kapoor to see when their pending film Milenge Milenge is released.
Plans for bringing Kareena and Shahid Kapoor together to promote their pending project Milenge Milenge have been called off. It has now been decided by producer Boney Kapoor that the pair will promote the film individually, to avoid any embarrassment and awkwardness for Kareena, who’s in a committed relationship with Saif Ali Khan. Although, for the record, Shahid, who had no objections to collaborating with Kareena on the promotion, seems unaware of these developments.
When asked if he’d be willing to promote the film jointly with Kareena, Shahid says enthusiastically, “Yes, I’ll do everything I can to promote it.
