‘Boom’ film was criticized a lot

‘Katrina was not comfortable, I was scared too’
When Gulshan Kumar was asked about an kissing scene with Katrina Kaif in an interview, the actor replied, “That was a very difficult scene.” One of the major reasons for this was that I had to do this intimate kissing scene in front of Amitabh Bachchan. The second thing was that Katrina Kaif was new in the industry at that time. In such a situation, she did not feel comfortable about it herself. I was also very scared.
‘Climb the table and pull it and kiss’
Well, when the shooting of this film (Katrina Kaif Gulshan Grover Boom Kissing Scene) started, director Kaizad Gustad explained the scene to the three actors. Katrina Kaif had to sit on the table. While Amitabh Bachchan and Gulshan Grover were to sit in the same chair. Katrina Kaif was told that you have to grab the collar of Gulshan Grover with full accordion and pull it towards you.
The practice was done in a closed room for two hours
Gulshan Grover says that the trouble increased when the director narrated the scene. Alam was that before the final take of this scene, Gulshan Grover practiced this scene for about 2 hours in a closed room. He was afraid that Katrina might get uncomfortable while doing the scene.
… and the shooting of the final scene
However, amidst all the practice and problems, Gulshan Grover sweated his forehead and agreed to do the scene. Clapping sound was heard along with lights, camera and action. Katrina Kaif held Gulshan’s collar in exactly the same manner as Director Kaizad had said. Katrina Kaif pulled Gulshan Grover towards him and started smooching him. The scene was finalized and the director made the cut.
Katrina showed confidence
