One of Bollywood’s odd couple- Sajid Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez- who reportedly fell in love with each other on the sets of `Housefull 2`, have finally called it quits.
The 42-year-old filmmaker’s rocky relationship with the 28-year-old former Miss Sri Lanka had earlier made headlines. According to a leading daily, the duo took the decision to part ways earlier this week.
"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," a source close to the duo confirmed the reports.
It is said that Khan’s possessiveness about the leggy lass acted as a catalyst in killing their relationship.
"He was always protective, but at times too possessive of his girlfriend, Jackie brought out his prudish side... he had issues with the way she dressed, her roles... everything," the source added.
There were also rumours abuzz that Jacqueline had to turn down meaty roles in ‘Jism 2’ and ‘Krissh 3’, because of her boyfriend Sajid’s supposedly banned her from dong any steamy scenes with her co-stars.
"Sajid`s bear hug was stifling Jackie, and though it was a painful decision, they decided it is best to remain friends rather than end up as bickering lovers," the source said.
According to the filmmaker’s friend the break up was amicable.
"There is no animosity. Now, both Sajid and Jacqueline want to focus only on their respective careers. Post Race 2, Jacqueline has been getting many offers. As for Sajid, he wants to bounce back with vengeance after Himmatwala," the friend said.
