Amrita Arora has no qualms about doing item numbers in films and she has a very valid reason for that.

According to Amrita, item numbers mean good money. "They mean good money. If the number I do becomes a huge hit, then that number is practically included in all the stage shows that happen abroad and I am guaranteed to be booked for the whole year to perform that number," she told an entertainment website.

Amrita said that she has three songs picturised on her in the forthcoming film Fight Club .

"I am just praying that one of them becomes a hit and then you will see me on all the shows," she said.

Considering that Vikram Chopra's Fight Club... was completely male dominated, with Sunil Shetty , Sohail Khan , Dino Morea , Zayed Khan , Ashish Choudhary , Ashmit Patel , Yash Tonk and Ritesh Deshmukh in it, did she actually have any scenes to herself?

Amrita said, "There are quite a lot of scenes that I have in the film. When I was offered the film, what attracted me was the character that I was playing in the film. I was not meant to be just another prop in the film. Yes, I am playing Dino Morea's love interest. But there's certainly more to the character than being his girlfriend."

She added, "Sometimes even if you don't have a lengthy role, you have an impact on the audience. It is such a role."

Amrita says that shooting for 'Fight Club' was an unforgettable experience. "It was like a party. Everyday there would be some funny incident or the other. All the actors including us actresses, Dia Mirza , Neha Dhupia and me, would have so much fun on the sets. Somebody would get food from home for all us or sometimes we would land up going to another co-star's home after pack-up. We bonded so well while working that we did not even realise when the shooting of the film got over," said Amrita.

She then revealed, "You know if Vikram (the director) has gone partially bald it is thanks to us. We have harassed the daylights out of him. He was compelled to be strict with us. I admire the passion with which he was involved in the film. He had to because after all he was the director. But right from day one Vikram took interest in everything, from the costume to the makeup I would use. And he would do that for all artistes."

Amrita said she will make her presence felt on screen in the New Year, "Fight Club hits the theatres on January 20. I will have a release practically every month following that. I have interesting roles in the films. So you can say that 2006 belongs to me!"
