Call it banking on her success or seeking revenge — Sanjay Jumani, distributor of Katrina Kaif's mega dud debut Boom (2003) is re-releasing eight of her sleazy omitted scenes from the movie in a new DVD version. "Now that Katrina and Mr (Amitabh) Bachchan are on the top, I’m re-releasing the DVD in all formats and even on Blu-Ray in May. It’ll also be on the net," says Jumani.
Katrina had reportedly got the scenes that includes a lip lock with co-star Gulshan Grover snipped out of the initial DVD, thanks to her then beau Salman Khan’s influence. "There will be 21 new scenes and eight of them will feature Katrina. The scenes have been very sexily shot. The new generation will love to see it," says the distributor.
Widely panned by critics, Boom was described as a soft-porn venture. The actors even went on record and regretted their involvement with the project. "I lost a lot of money because of stupid and immature statements made by the stars even before the movie released," says Jumani. Prod him about his counter move to check any interference from Kat’s office, he asserts, "The artist has willingly done the sex scenes. The producer did not force her. They had an agreement with her."
