MUMBAI: Her steamy kiss with Gulshan Grover in the DVD of her debut film that was deleted, will now appear in the new one
Katrina Kaif's hot liplock with Gulshan Grover in Boom (2003) is all set to return to haunt her. The actress had managed to get the screen smooch deleted from the first DVD by putting pressure through Salman Khan, who she was dating then. No one says no to Khan. But now that he's out of her life, the kiss is making a comeback.
The question that begs to be asked is why the makers want to release a fresh DVD when it's not exactly a hot selling item. Says an industry source, 'It is clear that the makers of Boom want to cash in on Katrina's success. She is a top actress now and naturally there will be curiosity about a steamy scene she did, when she was a newcomer." It's just another way to make a quick buck at her expense.
Gulshan confirms, "It is true. The new lot will have the controversial scene, which was omitted earlier. Many years have passed since we did Boom and even I had forgotten that such a scene existed in it. But we are all set to refresh the past. The scene certainly will have its share of reactions."
Meanwhile, the actress is clueless about this new development. However, a source from the production says, "They don't need to inform her or get her permission for the same. She had signed a contract knowing fully well what she was doing and had got paid for it." Fact remains that Kat has time and again admitted that she regrets doing the bold scenes at the start of her career.
Boom on big screen too
Sanjay Jumani, the international distributor of the film, reveals, "It is true that the deleted scenes will be included in the new print. We are also going to re-release the film in UK, USA and Gulf. We feel the film had not got its due when it released. It was ahead of its time."
