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.
But both the actors are non-cooperative now when the film is about to release in a few days. After a delay of six years, the actors should have shown a minimum courtesy to help the producer recover whatever he can. For some strange reason, the actors are not participating in the promotion of the film.
Kareena, who has already given a number of hit films in line, may not be bothered about Boney"s film but Shahid, who is just 19 films old, should have shown some interest in promoting the film. The actor has only two significant hit films in his kitty till date; one is Vivaah and the other Jab We Met with Kareena Kapoor. Shahid"s film Kaminey was critically acclaimed but commercially it failed and he had a record of four continuous flops.
On the other hand, producer Boney Kapoor has two back to back super hit movies No Entry and Wanted. The movie is yet to release in the theaters, and its fate at the box office will be decided later on. But earning a good amount through satellite rights, must have brought some hope to Boney.
