Kangana Ranaut has been firmed for Raaz 2, marking her return to the Bhatt camp after she ventured into corporate pastures like Metro and Fashion.

But unbenknownst to many, director Mohit Suri had been chasing Amrita Rao for the sequel to the Bipasha Basu-Dino Morea hit.

Suri had narrated the script to the Vivah girl and had suggested a makeover look with oomph appeal. The next thing you know, is that La Rao developed cold feet (stockinged).

No urgency
Confirming her meeting with Suri, Rao says, "I did hear the subject and liked it too. The screenplay is very taut and gripping but I didn't have the dates for them."

Ask her if he's using the standard line for declining a project and she clarifies, "They want to start shooting this month, but I have already committed the next 15 days to Anil Kapoor's ShortKut with Akshaye Khanna and Arshad Warsi. Then, I'll be shooting with Harman Baweja for Victory."

Is she coy about a sexy makeover?

"The look is not all that hot-hot, but there's a certain attitude in the girl's character," she responds.
