Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez recently shared a story wherein she mentioned “I deserve good things”. The story came after it was reported that Fernandez was named as an accused in Rs 200 crore money laundering case.
Earlier today, the enforcement directorate filed chargesheet in which Fernandez was an accused in the Rs 200 crore case which is linked to currently jailed conman Suresh Chandrashekhar. It should be noted that in the past, there have been reports which have mentioned that Fernandez and Chandrashekhar may have had an intimate bond.
“Dear me, I deserve all good things, I’m powerful, I accept myself, it’ll all be okay. I’m strong, I will achieve my goals and dreams, I can do it,” Fernandez posted on her Instagram.
Earlier in April, the ED had attached Rs 7.27 crore funds of Jacqueline Fernandez under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002, calling them “proceeds of crime”. “Sukesh Chandrasekhar had given various gifts worth Rs 5.71 crore to Jacqueline Fernandez from the proceeds of crime generated by criminal activities including extortion,” the ED had stated in April.
For the unversed, Suresh Chandrashekhar was involved in laundering hundreds of crores from prominent businessmen, celebrities, and politicians. He’s also accused for extorting Rs 215 from a businessman’s wife while he was lodged in jail.
The Facts of the Matter
After being named as an accused in the over Rs 200 crore money laundering case, Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez took to Instagram and shared a cryptic story.

“Dear me, I deserve all good things”
Taking to Instagram, the ‘Housefull’ actor shared a story which read – “Dear me, I deserve all good things, I’m powerful, I accept myself, it’ll all be okay. I’m strong, I will achieve my goals and dreams, I can do it.”
Earlier, Jacqueline had been interrogated multiple times by the economic intelligence agency ED. Back in April, the ED had finally attached Rs. 7.27 crores belonging to Jacqueline under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
How Chandrashekhar reached out to Jacqueline
It all started when Suresh Chandrashekhar made multiple calls to Aditi Singh, wife of Ranbaxy owner Shivendra Singh. Posing as a high-ranking official working closely with PMO, Suresh Chandrashekhar conned Aditi of Rs 215 crores on the pretext of getting Shivendra Singh out of jail.
Later, the ED was able to nab Chandrashekhar’s wife Leena Maria Paul and soon the plot thickened with multiple names of celebrities emerging with links to the conman. This also included Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi.
To get to the bottom of truth, the ED brought Jacqueline for interrogation wherein they questioned her about her involvement in the Rs. 215 crore extortion case.
Shocking Revelations Made During Questioning
During questioning it was revealed that Chandrashekhar posed as the owner of popular television channel Sun TV and further claimed that he was the family of prominent politician Jayalalitha. It was also revealed that Chandrashekhar tried to reach out to Fernandez in December 2020.
However, when she was contacted by a person from the government and was told that she should get in touch with Chandrashekhar, she got in touch with her.
