The ever-so-gorgeous actress, Jacqueline Fernandez is once again in the headlines and slowly leading the trending charts on social media. However, this time around, it is not related to her alleged involvement in the 200 crore money laundering case or association with the conman, Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
