Amid the money-laundering case, a picture featuring Jacqueline Fernandez sharing a private moment with millionaire conman, Sukesh Chandrashekhar went viral.
Born in Manama, Bahrain, Jacqueline went on to become Miss Universe Sri Lanka in 2006. Post that, she had made her debut in Bollywood opposite Riteish Deshmukh in the 2009 film, Aladin. However, it was during her stints in movies like Housefull and Housefull 2, that Jacqueline earned fame and recognition. Jacqueline's personal life was no less than a rollercoaster ride, and the diva had often garnered limelight for the same.
However, in the latest turns of events, Jacqueline Fernandez has once again hit the headlines for her intimate photo with millionaire conman, Sukesh Chandrashekhar. For the unversed, it was in October 2021, when Jacqueline Fernandez was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and questioned for seven hours in connection with the Rs. 200 crores money laundering case involving Sukesh Chandrashekhar and his wife, Leena Maria Paul.
A few moments back, a cosy photo of Jacqueline Fernandez sharing a private moment with millionaire conman, Sukesh Chandrashekhar surfaced online and went viral within seconds. In the photo doing rounds on the internet, we can see Sukesh kissing Jacqueline on the cheek as they posed for a mirror selfie in the bathroom. Sukesh held Jacqueline close to him and the latter looked super happy.
As soon as the photo went viral, it sparked controversy and ignited the dating rumours of Jacqueline Fernandez and Sukesh Chandrashekhar. According to a report in India Today, the photo was taken earlier this year when Sukesh was out on bail. The report also stated that the two had met four times during April-June 2021 and Sukesh had even arranged private jets for Jacqueline.
Earlier, reports were rife in the media that Sukesh used to call Jacqueline through caller ID spoofing while he was in the Tihar Jail and had sent her chocolates and flowers as gifts. Moreover, the reports had also revealed that the conman had hidden his true identity from her, and had suggested that Jacqueline had become a victim of the conman's extortion racket.
All these reports had ignited the rumours about Jacqueline Fernandez and Sukesh Chandrashekhar being in a relationship. The rumour mills had been churning and the reports about the couple had seemed to have no end. Moreover, lawyer, Anant Malik, who represents Chandrashekhar in the money laundering case, had earlier said:
“Jacqueline and Sukesh were dating, these are my instructions, this is straight from the horse’s mouth.”
Currently, the extortion case is under investigation and Jacqueline has been summoned by the probe agency many times.
