Film producer Boney Kapoor is a worried man. He has fixed a date for the release of his Shahid-Kareena-starrer Milenge Milenge and planned a promotional video for the film, but he can’t get Kareena Kapoor to shoot for it. Boney wanted both actors to shoot for the video together, but couldn’t get them to do it.
Shahid finished shooting his portions of the video in late March and since then, the producer has been busy persuading Kareena.. He says, “Shahid shot for the video, but I am yet to get a nod from Kareena. I think she is busy shooting for Golmaal 3. I am waiting for her to get free.
”The song, composed by Himesh Reshammiya and choreographed by Ahmad Khan, has some interesting lyrics for the actors, who also happen to be ex-lovers. A line in the song goes Sab kuchh khatm hokar bhi tere mere darmiyaan kuchh to baqi hai (Despite everything being over, something still remains between you and me).
According to Shahid: “(The) Media is making a lot of assumptions. I never said that I wished to do the promotional video with Kareena. I’ve always maintained that I’ll do whatever my producer asks me to. He asked me to shoot for a solo video, I agreed.” A unit member reveals that Shahid has also consented to promote the film with Bebo.
“Shahid has told Boney that he’ll promote the film with Kareena, but she is not keen,” says the source. The producer says, “The film will definitely release on June 25. It’d be nice if they promote the film together. But I don’t have a final call on it. They have agreed to promote it, but not together, yet.”
