Salman Khan's maiden international project 'Dr Cabbie' starring Katrina Kaif's sister Isabelle releases online instead of in Indian theatres as had been expected
Salman Khan's production 'Dr Cabbie', which features Katrina Kaif's sister Isabelle, finally reached India, but on an online portal. The star's first international venture, though complete in 2014, did not get a theatrical release here despite Salman's plans. It was also touted to be a launchpad for Isabelle's film career in Bollywood.

Salman recently tweeted, "'Dr Cabbie' is now in India. Only on Hotstar."
Says a source, "The film released on DVD in the US and Canada a while ago. Everyone was banking on Salman to release it in India, but things did not work out, and finally it has managed an online release."
Apart from Isabelle, the film directed by Canadian director Jean Francois Poulio, features Kunal Nayyar (Raj Koothrappali from 'The Big Bang Theory'), Vinay Virmani and American actress Adrianne Palicki. In 2014, Salman had visited Toronto for the film's music launch as well as its premiere.
In 2011-12, Isabelle would often accompany Kat to film events and award shows, but later, she went missing from her sister's side. Isabelle and Harshvardhan (Anil Kapoor's son) also featured in a short film, 'Coming Home' (2012).
In 2014, Isabelle was allegedly involved in a sex tape scandal. However, many claimed it was not her, but her lookalike.
