MUMBAI – When Jacqueline Fernandez and Sidharth Malhotra starred together in ‘A Genleman’, rumors of them dating came to the fore along with alleged claims of cat fight between Jackie and Alia Bhatt (Sidharth’s alleged beau).

The girls recently hung out and had a good time at Diwali. Despite that, rumors kept coming back again and again.

In a recent interview, Jacqueline opened up about the rumors saying, “It is sad. Honestly, I felt very hurt. It’s the same media and same people that ask you, ‘why don’t you do more female oriented roles? What are you doing for women’s rights?’ And it is the same female reporter who asks, ‘what about your catfight with Alia?’ I was like, ‘you are a woman and how could you even ask me that. Shouldn’t you be uplifting us as actresses?’ Sonam Kapoor went through the same thing. Sometimes, I feel the only thing I get written about is that I’m dating someone or that I’m in a cat fight.”

Jacqueline also talked about her current relationship status. She said, “I haven’t dated anyone for a long time. I am so focused on my work right now that those things are not my priorities. I feel so hurt that just because I am an actress, people think those are my priorities. We are working hard, and running our families, and our houses on our own. I wish they would grow up.”
