There were reports before that Allu Arjun snubbed Ileana D'Cruz, when the actress demanded a hefty amount to act opposite him in Trivikram Srinivas' Honey. Later, it was claimed that the Goan beauty signed the project after the actress agreed to play the female lead role for reduced amount. However, she has come out and clarified that she has not sealed the deal.
The actress, who is making her Bollywood debut in Barfee opposite Ranbir Kapoor, expressed her shock over the reports, which claimed that Allu Arjun told Trivikram Srinivas to drop her from the film. She adds that the Badrinath actor is a nice person and those reports are baseless. Talking about the film, the Pokkiri actress says that she is in talks with the filmmaker and nothing has been finalized yet.
Meanwhile, Trivikram Srinivas has roped in Kannada actor Sudeep, who is starring in SS Rajamouli's Eega, to play a key character in Honey. The proposed project, which is produced by DVV Danaiah, is expected to take off in December 2011.
