Jacqueline Fernandez’s two year old relationship with Bahrani prince Sheikh Hassan bin Rashid Al Khalifa ended few weeks ago. The former Miss Sri Lanka and actress has been dating Sheikh Hassan bin Rashid Al Khalifa, one of the members of the reigning royal family of Bahrain for more than two years. The actress’s often visits to Middle East gained high popularity in Indian medias for the past couple of months. Some gossip web sites revealed that they are going to engage last month.
Jackie and Hassan met a few of years ago at a common friend's house party and hit it off instantly. The reason for their split was due to confrontation between them over the rumors of her link-up with director Sajid Khan. "It is not just that. There are several factors at play here. Jackie has distanced herself from the prince over time. They were in a long distance relationship, which wasn't the best scenario. Earlier she would make time for him, but suddenly she became ambitious about her career in films and that became a priority. It almost seemed like he was the only one interested in keeping this relationship alive" the sources said.
The 35-year-old prince is known as ‘Shake’ and he also has his own rock band, ‘Manakin’ in which he is the lead singer and guitarist. Hassan, who started his music label two years ago, is also focusing on his music career to become a full-fledged rock artist.
Born in Sri Lanka,Fernandez comes from a Sinhalese family Even though her father is Sinhalese, her mother is Malaysian. Fernandez was crowned the Miss Sri Lanka for Miss Universe 2006. She also competed in Miss Universe 2006. Jacqueline made her acting debut in the 2009 Bollywood fantasy movie "Aladin" for which she was awarded the Best Debut Actress at the IIFA awards. Her second film “Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai” received lukewarm response, but she got noticed in Housefull's Dhanno song. Speaking about her role in the film to be released “Murder 2” she said "There is lot of evil and darkness in Murder 2
. Compared to what Anurag (Basu) did in Murder
, this one is a very dark film. “
"She has several friends in Mumbai, She's close to Riteish Deshmukh and Sajid Khan, with whom she's doing the Housefull sequel. But she has never been linked to anyone because she is serious about Hassan, says a source close to her. "All her friends know about Hassan; she's pretty open about him. Jackie wants to concentrate on her film career and do more films. She doesn't want her private life to jeopardize her professional ambitions.”
The source close to prince Hassan adds that Hassan never stopped her from signing films. "He was always supportive of her work, but she was the one to put the relationship on the backburner. They planned to get engaged but Jackie's attitude changed. It was evident she was no longer interested in him."
Their last meeting ended in an argument and she told him that her career meant more to her at this point than the relationship. She made it clear that she wanted to focus on making it big in B-Town. After that day, she has stopped taking his calls and replying to text messages. The source says, "Their close friends know about the break-up. Hassan doesn't want to talk about it because he wants to keep it private.
