"It got delayed due to certain reasons, but that doesn't
matter. A good film is always a good film and a good story is
always a good story... Boney is leaving no stone unturned to
promote this film in every which way," said Kaushik.
Asked if the delay was due to Shahid-Kareena reportedly playing
truant after their split, he said: "It has not happened
due to what has been reported in the press. Both Shahid and
Kareena have been professionals in terms of completing the film.

and how destiny brings them together. Shahid-Kareena were a
great off screen couple, but they parted ways. 'Milenge Milenge'
is an apt title for this pair, despite the fact that they are
very happy in their own space now."
Both the actors look very different now from six years ago.
But Kaushik is not worried. "The film was completed in
one go in 2005-06; so there is no change of looks for the actors

The promotional song of the movie "Sab kuch khatam ho
kar bhi" penned by Sameer should have obvious resonance
for the one-time couple.
"We were thinking of a promotional song and this one was
apt because it goes with the story. Later on we thought that
this one should also be the promotional video for the movie,"
said the director.
