Mumbai: Salman Khan’s find Zarine Khan has refused to work with Vivek Oberoi. No points for guessing why – because only someone from a different planet won’t know about the past which Salman and Vivek share.

The sizzler gave up an item song called ‘Main Chamiya No 1’ which featured Vivek, clearly because she doesn’t want to upset her mentor Salman Khan.

Talking to a daily, a source said, “Zarine has been sending out feelers that she wants to do item songs, as she needs the money to buy a house. When good friend Maanayata Dutt heard that Zarine was on the lookout, she spoke to hubby Sanjay Dutt and got her one in his next film `Zilla Ghaziabad`. Maanayata spoke to Sanju`s business manager Dharam Oberoi and got her a decent fee (30 lakh) for it. Zarine loved the song and agreed to do it.”

However, Zarine blaked the moment she heard that her item number will be with Vivek Oberoi.

An insider revealed, “When Zarine heard about Vivek, she got scared. She owes her career to Salman. He turned her from a background dancer into a leading lady. She felt he wouldn`t approve of her association with Vivek in any capacity.”
