Actress-dancer Nora Fatehi has sued Sri Lankan actor Jacqueline Fernandez for defamation in the amount of Rs 200 crore.
The “Thank God” star claims Fernandez made “false assertions with ill motive” in the lawsuit.
Earlier on Friday, Fatehi had left the Enforcement Directorate (ED) headquarters in New Delhi after being questioned on a money laundering case involving Rs 200 crore that was connected to con artist Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
On September 15, Nora and Pinky Irani—who allegedly introduced Nora and Jacqueline Fernandez to the imprisoned conman—were both interrogated by the Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing (EOW) for more than four hours.
On September 12, 2021, and October 14, 2021, statements made by Nora Fatehi were notably recorded under section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), 2002, in which she claimed to have received a booking for a charitable event.

According to ED, searches were carried out throughout the inquiry at a number of locations connected to Sukesh Chandrashekar and his colleagues. 16 high-end cars that were either registered to Leena Paulose’s companies or to other parties were seized during the search under section 17 of the PMLA.
Further evidence showed that Sukesh deliberately took part in the money laundering operation by consciously setting up the framework for stacking and transferring the proceeds of crime. (ANI)
