    Producer Bhushan Kumar, director Satish Kaushik, are uspet with Amrita Rao. Not so much because the turned down their ambitious project Karzzzz with Himesh Reshammiya but because she"s gloating about turning down the offer to all and sundry.

    Big moolah

    Says a source close to Amrita, “Satish Kaushik and Himesh Reshammiya offered her 3.5 crore to play Tina Munim"s role in the remake. They felt that she was perfect for the fresh, innocent girl"s part.

    They even offered her superb songs apart from the major moolah but Amrita turned down the offer as she didn"t want to star opposite Himesh." She has films with Harman Baweja, Nikhil Dwivedi and Shahid Kapur in her kitty and wants to act with bigger stars.

    Though Amrita admits she was offered the role she maintains that her decision had nothing to do with Himesh, “I was offered Karzzzz but unfortunately the dates clashed. Satishji and Himesh were keen that I do the role. The Karzzzz schedule starts in January 2008 with an outdoor in South Africa but I have already committed those dates to Victory."

    When asked if she was offered a remuneration of 3.5 crore to lure her, she simply says, “I would rather not comment on the money issue. For me it is not the money or the people but the script and role that matters the most."

    T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar however denies even offering the film to Rao, “Karzzzz was never offered to Amrita Rao. We were always supposed to introduce a new, fresh girl from the day it was announced."

    It is believed that Amrita was offered 3.5 crore by Himesh as he was very keen that she play Tina"s role.

    Bhushan says, “Why would I offer her three crore? Amrita is not worth more than 30 lakh and I am the producer. I take the decisions not Himesh."

    No meeting

    Himesh Reshammiya too denies approaching Amrita, “It"s a lie that we approached Amrita! I have never met Amrita Rao. Karzzzz will introduce a new girl opposite me in Tina"s role so the question of offering Amrita that role doesn"t arise."

    The crooner continues, “Each of my new films will introduce a new face because I think the chemistry with a new face opposite me has worked in Aap Ka Suroor. Bhushan"s been auditioning the new girls. All this is being done to malign me!"
