co-star Dev Patel. The stunning actress insists rumours she is romancing Dev are false, branding the 18-year-old actor a "little boy".

When asked if the pair are dating, Freida, 24, said: "No we are not. We're not dating, no. When quizzed again, Freida added: "Like I said, the little boy in the film -he's a kid."

Dev also dismissed speculation, saying: "I thought she was going to say something else. But of course, no, we're not seeing each other."

co-star Anil Kapoor claimed the pair were an item. They were also reportedly spotted looking at rings in a London high street jeweller on Valentine's Day.

Over the weekend, Freida's ex-fiance Rohan Antao, said she had left him heart broken after she fell for Dev.

Rohan, 24, said: "Frieda is infatuated with Dev. I don't know if they were having a sexual relationship but if I came face to face with him I would have things to say.

"She ended it with me after getting close to Dev Patel. Now everywhere I go I see them on billboards. I am devastated."

Rohan claims Freida broke off their 16-month relationship in a phone call from Los Angles in January, while promoting her film.

He also said he was forced to keep his engagement to the Indian starlet a secret for the sake of her career.
