'Boom won't be  re-released'

“That is not true. The rights of the DVD are with the Hindujas and it remains with them.
They are not distributing or re-distributing it,” said Katrina.

Recently, a distributor claimed that he will be re-releasing Boom with never seen before explicit footage featuring Katrina and Gulshan in the UK, USA and the Gulf region saying that the Kaizad Gustad-directed movie did not get its due as it was released ahead of its time.
Speculations were rife that Katrina’s lip-locking scenes with Gulshan were chopped off from the film’s initial DVD on her beau Salman Khan’s insistence.

Besides Gulshan and Katrina, Boom featured Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff, Padma Lakshmi, Madhu Sapre and Zeenat Aman. The film sought to exhibit the glamour world’s connection with the underworld, but failed to make an impact on the box-office.

With gossip mills abuzz that she would be part of Aditya Chopra’s Dhoom 3 and Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine, the actress said, “These are all rumours that go around. I have no idea about the film offers.”

“I am working on Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Besides that, there are no other films in hand,” added Katrina.

When asked about her sister Isabelle’s acting debut in Bollywood, the Rajneeti star said, “She is interested in films but at the moment she is New York. We would see when she comes back.”

In Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara - a male bonding road story about three friends on the lines of Dil Chahta Hai - Katrina will be seen alongside Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar and Kalki Koechlin. The film is slated to release on June 24.
Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, a romantic comedy set around a love triangle, has Katrina sharing screen space with Imran Khan and Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar. The film is set to release in July this year.
