Finally, Alia Bhatt & Sidharth Malhotra END THEIR RELATIONSHIP

Heads turned when Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt walked out of Sanjay Kapoor's Diwali bash together (not hand-in-hand) and speculation caught fire that the estranged lovebirds have decided to rekindle their romance.

But NO, it's nothing like that. We have it from sources close to them that both are firmly single at the moment. This implies that Sidharth's passion for Jacqueline has melted. Reportedly, Jacqueline was one of the reasons why the lovers in question drifted apart. Sidharth and Jacqueline had got up, close and personal during the making of A Gentleman (Remember that film? No? Forget it, not worth taxing your brain).

So, Alia and Sid did have a few heart-to-heart chats after that- but nothing came of it that could restore Alia's faith in her Student Of The Year co-star, with whom she had been involved for the last 3 years.

Jacqueline was not the only reason, though. A point had surfaced in their relationship which made both feel that they are incompatible with each other.

So why did they come out together from Sanjay's Diwali celebration? A source says, "They still care for each other. Both come from very respectable families. They will never make it evident that there is some problem between them. In fact, they will hush up the problem and try to look ahead."

Adds the source, "Lekin haan, sirf ek problem nahin bahut saare problems hain. It is most unlikely that they will reunite as a couple again. It was a very painful decision to take but the very fact that they took it indicates only maturity."

Alia Bhatt also has it that Alia and Sidharth will never let their personal battle come in the way of their road ahead in the film industry. So yeah, Mukesh & Mahesh Bhatt can rest assured that if they want to cast the two of them together, Aashiqui 3 will happen.

That's that!
