Things have certainly changed for the ex-lovers Sajid Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez. They may have parted ways amicably, but it seems a bit of resentment lurks between them and the two don’t seem keen to work with each other.
Sajid Khan’s next is tentatively titled Humshakal and stars Saif Ali khan and Riteish Deshmukh in the male leads, and it’s said that Sajid has even roped in his Himmatwala heroine Tamannaah for the other female lead. As per sources, the movie has scope for three actresses, and while Sajid has selected two, the third one will be finalized soon.
Why is Jacqueline Fernandez not in the film? A source tells a daily, “Sajid and Jacqueline were not keen on working together anymore. They may work in future on some other film…it's difficult to have a good working relationship so soon.”
However, there could be another reason for Jacqueline being dropped from Sajid Khan’s film. It’s said that Sajid Khan is ticked off by the actress being signed for Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick, starring Salman Khan. Sajid Khan is not exactly on the same page with Nadiadwala after their apparent falling out sometime back.
Moreover, Sajid Khan is impressed with Esha Gupta’s body of work. The gorgeous former Kingfisher calendar girl has worked in films like Jannat 2, Raaz 3 and Chakravyuh. Her pairing with Saif Ali Khan is also fresh.
After the debacle of Himmatwala at the BO, Sajid Khan was keeping a low profile, but not anymore; the director is gearing up to make a comeback with a vengeance.
