It's finally time for Shahid Kapur and Kareena Kapoor to reunite on-screen as their long delayed film Milenge Milenge is set to hit theatres on March 5, 2010.
The release date has been confirmed by producer Boney Kapoor who continues to be passionate about his pet project in spite of it being in the making for half a decade.
"The principal shooting of the film is wrapped up and we are neck deep in post production. March 5 has been confirmed for release and we are finalising our marketing and promotional strategy," Kapoor said.
The film's leading lady, Kareena Kapoor has meanwhile silenced detractors who raised questions as to whether the former couple will come together to promote the film.
"I can't help it if the media chooses to report things based on their whims and fancies. Did I ever say that I won't be working with Shahid? In fact I loved Shahid in Kaminey. He was superb there. Our personal equation can't define our professional relationship," said Kareena.
Shahid and Kareena were last seen together in the 2007 hit Jab We Met which re-energised their fizzling careers and Kapoor hopes that the film directed by Satish Kaushik will achieve similar success.
Many felt that the film may never see the light of the day but Boney Kapoor as well as director Satish Kaushik were confident that Milenge Milenge will definitely hit the marquee.
In fact the industry was quite surprised when the first theatrical promo of Milenge Milenge was unveiled a couple of months back.
Kareena is now gearing up to promote the film and said that she has no problems sharing the stage with Shahid.
"When I am willing to do films with him, why would I hesitate from the promotional perspective? There were reports some time back that I had said 'No' to shooting for a music video with him to promote Milenge Milenge. Now someone has to tell me where did that come from? I am there for the makers whenever they call me," said the actress.
Boney Kapoor whose last production, Salman Khan starrer Wanted was a superhit is meanwhile keeping his fingers crossed.
Himesh Reshammiya is composing the music for Milenge Milenge and the film also enjoys the status of a solo release since there is no other film planned for a 5th March opening.
