There were rumours that Sidharth Malhotra had broken up with Alia Bhatt and was dating Jacqueline Fernandez. However, the "Dishoom" actress denied the buzz saying that she is an "easy target" and "single."

Sidharth and Jacqueline have started shooting for "Bang Bang" sequel and reports had suggested that the two became quite close to each other. Jacqueline now clearly denied the rumours.

"Obviously people want to believe what they want to and will write what they want. I am an easy target because I am single. There is no point in clarifying anything," Jacqueline told Mumbai Mirror, when asked about the reports of she dating Sidharth.

Although neither Sidharth nor Alia have never admitted their relationship, the duo's fondness for each other has been good enough to make fans believe that they are very much in a relationship.

Rumours had earlier suggested that the two had parted ways due to various reasons. Some reports had said that fights over Alia's former boyfriends had resulted in a split, while some others had claimed that the actor's closeness with Sharddha Kapoor had caused the breakup. These rumours were intensified after Sidharth's rumoured girlfriend claimed herself to be single in an interview.

However, a report few days back had said that Alia had introduced Sidharth as her boyfriend to some of her close friends. The "Udta Punjab" actress had invited some close friends to her new Juhu residence where she reportedly introduced Sidharth as her beau. Reports had also suggested that the two had recently headed for a vacation together.
