Amidst Reports of ARREST In Money Laundering Case, Will Jacqueline Fernandez Accompany Salman Khan in The Da-Bangg Tour?
A Story by Jasmine Kaur
The picture of Jacqueline Fernandez with conman Sukesh Chandrashekar went viral on social media a few days ago. It was reported yesterday that the actress is in big trouble and might be arrested soon by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). One of Jacqueline’s beneficiaries was alleged conman Sukesh Chandrasekar in his Rs. 200-crore money laundering case. She was stopped at the Mumbai airport while leaving the country, according to reports. Even Nora Fatehi’s name has been mentioned in this case, not just Jacqueline. Sukesh is said to have given both actresses gifts.
Jacqueline was supposed to be a part of Salman Khan’s Da-Bangg Tour which is scheduled to take place on 10th December 2021 in Riyadh. In Salman’s announcement, Jacqueline was pictured on the poster and her name was also mentioned in the caption. Despite the arrest reports, we wonder if Jacqueline will be able to accompany Salman on the tour.
According to reports, Daisy Shah, Salman’s Jai Ho co-star, has replaced Jacqueline and will be a part of the Da-Bangg Tour. Daisy replied in a text message to Bombay Times, “I am unaware of this.”
Bollywood Hungama reports that Salman will not be able to help his Kick co-star, and that all her close friends have disappeared. The portal also quoted a co-star of Jacqueline as saying, “She is a very sweet person. However, she is too ambitious for herself. A good life has always been her passion. Her highest priority is always to live a good life.”
Her upcoming films include Attack, Ram Setu, Bachchan Pandey, Kick 2, Cirkus, and Vikrant Rona (Kannada).
Stops from leaving India over 200 crore exortion case
Pictures of Jacqueline Fernandez with conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar have appeared all over social media. An immigration official stopped her at the Mumbai International Airport after she was named in a money laundering case involving alleged conman Sukesh Chandrasekar.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a 7,000-page chargesheet against the conman, his wife, actress Leena Maria Paul, and six others. Jacqueline was also questioned regarding a money laundering case a while back.
During interrogations, Chandrashekhar said he had given Jacqueline a horse worth Rs 52 lakh, four Persian cats, one of which was worth Rs 9 lakh, diamond-studded jewellery sets, and crockery.
On December 10, Jacqueline will take part in Salman Khan’s Da-bangg tour in Riyadh. It is possible, however, that the show could be cancelled last minute because of legal issues.
Jacqueline’s only hope amid the ongoing legal tensions comes from her mentor and close friend Salman Khan with whom she worked in films like “Race 3” and “Kick”.
Chandrashekhar’s lawyer Anant Malik claimed in his arguments in October this year that Jacqueline and Chandrashekhar were dating. This claim, however, was denied by Jacqueline’s spokesperson.
