Last year, Jacqueline Fernandez hit headlines for her alleged connection to conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar in a 200 crore money laundering case. The actress was also named as accused in a charge sheet filed by the enforcement directorate.
In December 2022, Nora Fatehi had also filed a defamation case against Jacqueline Fernandez, claiming that the latter dragged her in the money laundering case involving Sukesh. In her plea, Nora had stated that she lost out on a Dubai based concert, around 10 city tours in the US and Canada and various commercial deals, and had to settle for a 50% cut in fee with a brand after her name was dragged in the case. “It has started to become evident that the aforementioned rivals being unable to compete with the Complainant fairly in the industry have started to try and tarnish her reputation which would cause her loss of work,” Nora stated in her defamation suit.
