Mumbai: Boney Kapoor has finally decided to release the long pending Hurman Baweja-starrer "It`s My Life". The filmmaker says that the actor himself was reponsible for the delay in the movie.
Directed by Anees Bazmi, "It`s My Life" is a remake of a super hit Telugu film "Bomarrillu". The film has been ready for nearly a year and the release date has been repeatedly announced and cancelled, the most recent being July 23, 2010.
"Hurman himself is partly to blame for the delay. I wish he hadn`t given priority to his other two films `Victory` and `What`s Your Raashee?`. If he had listened to me and focused on `It`s My Life`, he`d have had a super hit on his hand," Boney said.
Hurman apparently gave dates to Ajit Pal`s "Victory" and Ashutosh Gowariker`s "What`s Your Raashee?" and wanted "It`s My Life" to come after them.
The gambit had not gone down well with Boney. He had decided to put "It`s My Life" on the back-burner, his logic being: "If the project is not important enough to the hero, it isn`t important for me either."
But now Boney is negotiating with a corporate house for a tie-up release. "I`ll release `It`s My Life` right after `Milenge Milenge`," said Boney.
But the question is, when will "Milenge Milenge" release?
"I needed to get Shahid`s video in place. Now all I need from Kareena Kapoor is five-six hours. She has promised she would give me the time," said Boney.
