Mallika Sherawat who was reportedly offered an item number in Murder 2 shocked Bhatts when she demanded an exorbitant 2 crores for the song. It was reported that the actress deliberately quoted the amount as she was pissed off by Bhatts for not offering her the lead in Murder 2. Bhatts also reportedly signed a new model to do the item number. Mahesh Bhatt however, has denied all the rumours. “These are all self-generated lies. No truth in it.” So it seems Mallika is not exactly out of picture.
