Amrita is not even worth Rs 30 lakhs

Ranbir, Sonam, Neil Mukesh or Deepika Padukone aren't the only stars who floored audience in 2007.

Our very own Nasal sensation Himesh Reshammiya rocked literally the box-office too and perhaps much better than most of them.

Bhushan Kumar, the T-Series czar, was so impressed with his outing at the box office that he launched three Karzzzz, Kajraare and A love Iissshtory, starring Himesh, to be directed by Satish Kaushik, Pooja Bhatt and John Mathew Matthan respectively.

Karzzzz is the remake of Ghai's original blockbuster of the same name but the film has already landed into minor tussle with Amrita Rao, who claims that she was asked to play the lead role opposite Himesh which she eventually refused.

She also claims that 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 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.

Now that claim has made Bhushan Kumar very angry. “Karzzzz was never offered to Amrita Rao.

We were always supposed to introduce a new, fresh girl from the day it was announced,” he fumes and adds, "Why would I offer her three crores to Amrita who is not worth more than 30 lakh.”

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 and not only that each of my new films will introduce a new face because I think the chemistry with a new face opposite me has worked last time. "

And now we hear that Jennifer Kotwal, who made a spectacular debut in the Kannada superhit Jogi, is the most likely choice to play Tina Munim's role.

Jennifer had a tiny appearance in Subhash Ghai's Yaadein and it was on his recommendation Jeniffer was roped in for Karzzzz.
