Shahid and Kareena together on Valentine’s day
Come what may, Shahid aur Kareena Milenge Milenge. That’s the title of the long-delayed Shahid-Kareena romance directed by Satish Kaushik, which producer Boney Kapoor has decided to release on Valentine’s Day.
It seems somewhat ironical considering Shahid and Kareena have gone their separate ways.
“So be it. Perhaps it was destined that the most romantic film featuring Shahid and Kareena would come after their relationship,” says Boney.
Thanks to the surprise success of Jab We Met, the long-dormant Shahid-Kareena starrer is being brought alive.
Though the lead pair is yet to dub, Boney has already got Milenge Milenge censored.
“We’ve got the scratch-print censored,” explains Boney. “And all we need now is for Shahid and Kareena to dub. They haven’t given me any indication that they’ve any problem with dubbing for the film,” said Boney, belying the reports that the lead pair is disinclined to be part of the project any longer.
The only person from the team who won’t be part of the newly revived Milenge Milenge is Himesh Reshammiya.
“Himesh has done the songs. We’ve got the late maestro Salil Chowdhary’s son Sanjay to do the background score. The promos are also ready. It’s a very young and fresh film. We’re now looking at a Valentine’s release on Feb 15.”
Director Satish Kaushik too is gung-ho about the release. Milenge Milenge is not the least dated. And why should Shahid and Kareena have any problems dubbing it? In fact, Shahid lives in my building. I’ve asked him about the dubbing and he’s fine by it.
Satish was planning to release his other teenybopper romance Tere Sang for Valentine’s Day.
