She didn't have a single dialogue to mouth in the theatrical promo of 'Dhoom 3', something that shocked many of her diehard fans as well as insiders in the B-Town and trade. However Katrina Kaif is now having the final laugh, what with the music video of her title track from the film indeed creating 'dhoom' and silencing her detractors. The song is playing across all online and satellite medium, hence turning out to be a smash success even as the film is four weeks away.

"This time around she is hogging the limelight, and rightly so," says a close associate, "The music video lasts a good over three minutes and is longer than the theatrical promo which was basically centered on Aamir Khan. Katrina knew about this from the very beginning and just smiled it all away when it was insinuated by a few that she was being left out. That was not the case though as she knew that there was something much bigger and better awaiting her."

This has indeed happened, what with her music video not just boasting of a new sound of 'dhoom' but also turning out to be instantly eye catching, courtesy innovative choreography and picturisation at work.

"In 'Dhoom', there were two versions of the song, one each with Esha Deol and Tata Young and they set the path for more to follow. Later in 'Dhoom 2', it was the turn of Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai to ignite the fire. However Katrina has managed to take a huge jump ahead," comments an observer, "Yet again, she has danced away to glory and the grace with which she made her moves count against the rhythm of the beats is tantalizing to say the least."

Incidentally, it is one full year after her last release, 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', that Katrina would be returning on the big screen and that too in a much sizzling avtar.
