Currently under shooting spells, Milenge Milenge is a romantic comedy starring love-heads Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapur in lead roles. Directed by Satish Kaushik and produced by Boney Kapoor, the movie also stars Satish Shah, Aarti Chhabria and Delnaz Paul in supporting roles. IndiaFM zoomed in on the sets for some dope on the film.

Shot of the day

The second-last shooting schedule, it's an indoor shoot of a boy's hostel. We spot Kareena in a flowing blue top and white trousers. Her blonde streaks pulled back into a pony. Director Satish Kaushik throws instructions, which Kareena picks up pronto.

Scene I: Kareena comes to the hostel searching for Shahid. She however doesn't find him there. Upset about it, she plonks on to a couch. Just then a book lying on the table catches her attention…

Scene II: Satish explains us that Kareena's character is terribly upset about something. Bebo pops some glycerin drops to get the distressed look. Our camera watches Kareena knocking at a door in the corridor and then sliding in. The door shuts behind her.

Talk with the trio

Kareena who has earlier worked with Satish Kaushik in Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai is all praise for the rolly-polly director. “Satishji gave me a huge hit. He has a big role in my success. I will be always there if he needs me. Besides, I like the way he presents his leading ladies”

Monitoring the shot was Satish who calls for a cut. We chip in just then. “You have a casting coup in Kareena and Shahid!” to which he says “Getting Kareena and Shahid is no casting coup for me. I had earlier worked with Kareena. As for Shahid, I knew him as a kid.”

And what does he think about his hero getting typecast as a lover boy? “I think Shahid should take on more such roles. Currently we have a dearth of good-looking stars. I think Shahid should do what he is best at”

When we bumped into the cutie himself, we wanted to know what best impressed him about the film. Posing in a white chicken shirt, Shahid says, “ The biggest hitch is that love stories tend to get predictable. But in here, I liked the unpredictable journey of the characters down the love lane”

And what does he think of the Fida's failure inspite of their pairing? ”I have always maintained that it's the film that works. A lead pair has nothing to do with its success. Also don't ignore the fact that our pair was appreciated. The film might have failed, our chemistry didn't”
