After dumping Jacqueline, Sajid Khan dating Esha Gupta

It seems director Sajid Khan has a fascination for long legged actresses. First he dated Gauhar Khan then Rakshanda Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez and now the latest in the row is Esha Gupta. According to the latest buzz, Sajid after breaking up with Jacqueline has found love in Esha, his ‘Humshakals’ actress.

It is said that the duo share more than a director-actor relationship on the set and after the shoot both spend quality time together. There has been a hush-hush in the industry for quite sometime that Sajid and Esha are romantically linked up with one another.  

“They bonded well and it looked more than just a director-actress thing. The two have suddenly found things in common to give them company. Their close friendship raised eyebrows on the sets,” said a source from the film unit.

However, Saijid Khan’s brewing romance with Esha did not go well with the second lead actress of the film, Bipasha Basu. Bips felt that Sajid was biased about his love interest but the bong bombshell declined any such rivalry.

“Though Bipasha had later made it a point to deny it, the truth is far from it,” a source said. When enquired about Esha, the filmmaker commented: “Why only Esha? I am buddies with Tammanah (who also features in his film) and Bipasha as well. It’s always great to work with friends.”

Sajid Khan was in a relationship with Jacqueline for three years. His over possessive nature is said to be the reason of his past break-ups.  He too met with Jacqueline on his film set, ‘Housefull 2’and love blossomed. In various occasions, they were spotted together. The duo called it a quit only few months ago.

Confirming their break-up, a source close to the two said: "Sajid and Jacqueline were having serious issues since February this year. But they have many common friends who always helped them patch up. Their efforts worked for a while, but the cracks kept resurfacing."

According to reports, Sajid's intensity as a lover has killed their strong romance. "He was always protective, but at times too possessive of his girlfriend," said a source, adding, "Jackie brought out his prudish side... he had issues with the way she dressed, her roles... everything." Industry insiders say Jacqueline lost the golden opportunity to act in Jism -2 and Krrish-3 due to her boyfriend.

Sajid forbade her from kissing Hrithik Roshan on screen or shooting sensual scenes with Arunoday Singh and Randeep Hooda. "Sajid's bear hug was stifling Jackie, and though it was a painful decision, they decided it is best to remain friends and end up as bickering lovers," said the source.

Friends say Sajid Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez's 'parting was amicable'.
