Bollywood diva Jacqueline Fernandez has been handed a serious setback by the Enforcement Directorate. Jacqueline‘s possessions worth Rs. 7.2 crore seized by the ED in conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar’s extortion case. Chandrasekhar is presently accused of laundering Rs 215 crore from Delhi based renowned business family. Chandrasekhar has reportedly spent approximately Rs 20 crore on several models and Bollywood personalities. A few people had turned down his gifts.
According to insiders, Jacqueline Fernandez is the intended recipient of the extorted funds, and the attachment was filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. On Fernandez’s behalf, Chandrasekhar had even-handed a scriptwriter Rs. 15 lakhs as an advance for penning a script for her web series plan. This monetary value has also been attached.
In her statement to the ED in August and October previous year, the actor revealed she “got” presents from Chandrasekhar, namely three stylish bags from Gucci and Chanel, two Gucci gym shorts, a set of Louis Vuitton shoes, 2 sets of diamond earrings, and a bracelet with multi-colored stones.
Earlier Jacqueline refused to remark on the dispute and shared a note on her Instagram profile, “the nation and its folks have always granted me incredible love and respect, This involves my media friends, from whom I’ve gained a great deal of knowledge. I’m now passing through a difficult time, but I’m confident that my friends and followers will support me. With this trust in mind, I’d want to ask my media friends not to share photographs of nature that invade my private and personal boundaries. You wouldn’t do anything like this to your beloved family, and I’m sure you wouldn’t do it to me. I’m optimistic that justice and decent intention win out. “Thank you very much.”

I was in Relationship with Jacqueline: Sukesh Chandrasekhar
Earlier, Sukesh Chandrasekhar wrote in his letter regarding his involvement with actress Jacqueline Fernandez, saying, “I was in a relationship with Jacqueline and that was the motive I sent her presents.” Any exchange that happened related to my personal life, and neither of the money spent on the presents was a portion of any proceeds, and the jury decides whether it was. She is not at all connected to this case.”
