After Shahid and Kareena split Mausam went into a back burner. They were not comfortable working with each other which meant that even the Satish Kaushik directed Milenge Milenge hasn't seen light of the day. Panjak had to think about cast some other actress instead of Kareena and his producers Religare Vistaar Entertainment decided to launch a nationwide hunt for a suitable actress who could get into the shoes of Kareena.
Kareena upon hearing this said that she had no problems starring opposite Shahid in any movie as she separates her professional life from her personal one. She added that the only thing she would look for is a good script and a good role for herself. Shahid had always maintained that he had no qualms about starring with Kareena. Seems like the audience will soon get to see Shahid and Kareena romance together even if it is just on-screen.
When Shahid Kapoor was going strong with Kareena Kapoor his father Pankaj Kapoor had decided to cast the couple in Mausam. Pankaj had in fact written the script of his directorial debut keeping Kareena in mind. The one time lovers had last starred together in Jab We Met before their much publicised break up. Ironically it went to be their biggest hit together after the couple in the heydays of their courtship had delivered some duds.
