SCOOP Sajid Khan re

Ex flames Sajid Khan-Jacqueline Fernandez rekindle their friendship after 6 years?

After parting ways on an acrimonious note in 2013, Jacqueline Fernandez and Sajid Khan are back to being friends, if a report in Mumbai Mirror is to be believed. Apparently, the two have put their bitter break-up behind them and have begun exchanging text messages again.

Jacqueline will soon make her digital debut in Netflix original Mrs Serial Killer, which is directed by Sajid’s brother-in-law Shirish Kunder. The newspaper reports that Sajid dropped by on the sets of the web-series, and even dropped Jacqueline home.

In 2013, Jacqueline and Sajid broke up after being in a relationship for three years. In an interview with The Times Of India in 2014, the filmmaker indirectly blamed his relationship with her for the failure of his directorial venture Himmatwala.

“While we broke up in May 2013, in reality right from December 2012, it started becoming sour. So you are already preparing your mind in those five months. Also, when you don’t have a woman in your life, you don’t have someone constantly nagging you, so you end up working better and are more focused. I went for a holiday with her for five days in the middle of making Himmatwala and felt so bad when the film didn’t do well,” he told the newspaper.

Rumours were doing the rounds that Sajid was responsible for getting Jacqueline ousted from Housefull 4. The actress featured in the second and third installments of the franchise.

Sajid was originally directing Housefull 4, but he stepped down from the project after multiple women levelled serious allegations of sexual harassment against him. He allegedly behaved inappropriately on several occasions, ranging from pulling his p***s out in the middle of professional conversations to asking actresses to seduce him.

The filmmaker denied the allegations but said that he was quitting Housefull 4 till the time he could prove his innocence. “In the wake of the allegations against me and the pressure being put on me and my family, the producers and stars of my film Housefull 4, I must take the moral responsibility of stepping down from my directorial post,” he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Jacqueline, at an event in Mumbai last year, lent her support to the #MeToo movement that took Bollywood by storm. “It’s very important to remember that the gender dialogue is a conversation that’s long overdue and let’s not limit it to our film industry. It’s a dialogue which has been long overdue in our society as well. Unfortunately, the sad truth is sexual predators are all around us,” she was quoted by IANS as saying.

“They are sometimes in our own household so, we should not deviate from the actual issue which is not entirely about sex but it’s about the power struggle. We really have to stick to the issue and be serious about it if we want solutions and if we want to have safe workplace for everyone and for society,” she added.
