Jacqueline Snags Bahrain Prince
Bollywood’s latest buzz is that Jacqueline Fernandes, Miss Sri Lanka 2006, has been racking up the frequent flier miles on clandestine trips to the Middle East to visit her heartthrob, Sheikh Hassan bin Rashid Al Khalifa, who is a member of the royal family. Now it’s rumoured this power couple is ready to take their relationship to the next level.
Jacqueline was born and brought up in Sri Lanka before making her way to India to pursue a career in Hindi cinema. Her debut film Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai flopped but she was eventually noticed in Housefull’s “Dhanno song”.
Co-stars reveal “she has several friends in Mumbai, including Riteish Deshmukh and Sajid Khan, with whom she’s doing the Housefull sequel. However, she has never been romantically linked with anyone as she is serious about Hassan.”
Jacqueline and Hassan met formally few years ago at a mutual friend’s home and reportedly hit it off instantly. They have been seeing each other since 2008 and recently decided to take their relationship to the next level by getting engaged.
Jacqueline’s friends reveal, “all of us know about Hassan—she’s pretty open about him. However, the engagement will not be publicized as Jackie wants to concentrate on her film career right now.
Romance can be a delicate balancing act for a high profile duo, but love comes as easily and naturally as falling off a flying carpet, so best of luck to Jacqueline and Hassan.
