acqueline Fernandez on her cat fight with Alia Bhatt: I felt hurt – Jacqueline also revealed about her relationship status and her priority towards acting.
Mumbai: During the shoot of the film A Gentleman, actress Jacqueline Fernadez and Sidharth Malhotra were rumoured about their extreme fondness for each other, which subsequently turned into a cat fight with Sidharth’s alleged girlfriend Alia Bhatt. The actresses had unfollowed each other on their respective social media accounts. But in the interesting turn of events, the two leading Bollywood beauties hung out and posed happily during Diwali. Jacqueline gave it back to the reporters saying that she was hurt with the rumors and kind of things that are being written about her lately.
While talking to a leading daily, The ‘Race 3’ actress said, “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 catfight.”
The Bollywood diva also revealed about her relationship status and her priority towards career.
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.”
On the work front, while Jacqueline will be next seen opposite Salman Khan in ‘Race 3’, Alia Bhatt just wrapped up shooting for Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Raazi’ alongside Vicky Kaushal.
