Since their break-up last month, Sajid Khan has decided to replace his ex-girlfriend Jacqueline Fernandez with Esha Gupta in his forthcoming release tentatively titled ‘Humshakal’.

Not only that, Khan has signed ‘Himmatwala’ (2013) actress Tamanna in the other female lead. A third actress is yet to be confirmed but sources say that Fernandez will no longer be a part of this project.

A source told Times Of India, “Sajid and Jacqueline were not keen on working together anymore. They may work in future on some other film. While they may have parted amicably, it’s difficult to have a good working relationship so soon. ‘Sajid had even meet Jacqueline’s parents in October last year and they were pretty close to getting married.”

The film, which is said to be inspired by the 1982 comedy ‘Angoor’, stars Saif Ali Khan and Ritesh Deshmukh.
