Sidharth Malhotra opens up on dating Jacqueline Fernandez

Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez's on-screen chemistry and off-screen bonding gave rise to the rumor that the ‘A Gentleman’ couple is dating and it has also created trouble in Sid and Alia Bhatt’s love life.

Sidharth Malhotra is totally upset with the link-up rumour with his co-star Jacqueline and responded to the report. Talking about the same, he told Mid-Day, "Is it something about me? Barring Akshay (Kumar, his co-star in 2015 release Brothers), all my co-actors and I have been items."

"It's sad that going out for meals and chilling together has such connotations in this universe. Apparently, comfort between co-stars is suggestive of something more than a good working rapport. People in show business aren't given the leeway to be normal," he added.

Gossip mills churned that Sid and Jackky’s bonding has taken a toll on Alia and Sid’s relationship. The lovebirds had a big brawl over the actor’s relationship with his female co-star.

A source added, “Alia and Sid are avoiding each other and are not even on talking terms now. Maybe with time, they will get back to being friends, but for now, they are maintaining a distance from each other. They were having a lot of fights in the recent times. Mutually, they decided it wasn’t working out and it was better to end it.”

This time the couple broke-up never to get back together again. A source told DNA, “Sidharth and Alia have split, and unlike previous instances, this time, it seems permanent. They will not get back together again.” 

‘A Gentleman’ is set to hit the screens on August 25.
