Reports of Jacqueline Fernandez trying to defame Nora Fatehi started doing the rounds after the dancer filed a defamation case against Fernandez in Rs. 200 Crore extortion case involving Sukesh Chandrasekhar. In her complaint, Fatehi alleged that the Kick actress made defamatory allegations against her to destroy her career. Now, Jacqueline’s lawyer Prashant Patil has responded to this and revealed his client has no intentions to defame Nora and that she has not spoken to any media in this regard.
Speaking with ETimes, Prashant Patil said they have not received any official correspondence from Nora on the matter yet. He was quoted saying, “Jacqueline has not made any statement in front of any electronic or print media against Nora or for that matter, any other person. She has consciously avoided talking about the Enforcement Directorate proceedings. Till date she has maintained the sanctity of law and because the matter is subjudice she has always avoided to speak in front of print and social media.”
The lawyer added, “Having said that, we have not received any official copy of the suit filed by Nora. Once we receive an official confirmation or an order of the Honourable Court, we will respond to it legally.” Patil went on to state that Jacqueline has the utmost respect for Nora and that there definitely has been some sort of miscommunication. He also pointed out that his client has no intention to defame Nora or for that matter anybody else. ALSO READ: WHAT?!

For the unversed, Nora has not just filed a defamation case against Jacqueline Fernandez but also against the media. She accused the media organizations of "carrying forward and circulating’ Jacqueline’s remarks. In her petition, Nora stated, “A conspiracy by the accused No. 1 (Jacqueline Fernandez) to ensure the financial, social, and personal downfall of the complainant was hatched, and enacted by the said action.”
Both Nora and Fernandez have been accused of receiving expensive gifts and money from conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
