She said, ”I was shocked and told him straight away that this is wrong and I cannot be a part of such a project. He started telling me how it is not a big deal and everyone does it. I told him I don’t want to be famous and bag through all this, if I want a project I want it on my talent. He called me after a week again and told me that the deal is still on.
