Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez have been making headlines for the past several months for their alleged connection with conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. According to multiple reports, both the actresses received luxury gifts from the conman while he was in jail. As per Enforcement Directorate (ED), these gifts, which include luxury cars, diamonds, and bags among other things, were paid for using extorted money. Amidst this, India Today has got access to exclusive chats between Sukesh and Nora where they discussed the selection of a luxury car.
As per India Today, one of their chats read, “Do you like this?” Sukesh Chandrashekhar asked Nora Fatehi about a Range Rover car. To this, she responded. “Yes, it’s a nice rough use car. It’s cute, it’s a statement car.” “I will show you more options,” he said.
Sukesh’s another conversation with Nora read, “I would highly appreciate it if you could speak for a minute to clarify everything. I hope you or your agency are not wondering why this gift. I want to make it clear that it’s not being given with any kind of motive, but only because when you like a person, you give them gifts. Doing it for that reason only, nothing else.”
The Enforcement Directorate is investigating Sukesh Chandrashekhar’s case, where he allegedly extorted Rs 200 crore from his businessman’s wife Leena Maria. During his interrogation, multimillionaire Chandrashekhar had revealed that he had gifted Jacqueline a horse worth Rs. 52 lakh and a Persian cat worth Rs. 9 lakh.
ED had summoned and questioned both Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi a few times. According to the ED, Sukesh Chandrashekhar gifted Nora a BMW car in December 2020. Last week, Jacqueline Fernandez had told ED that she too was conned by Sukesh Chandrashekhar as he made a "spoofed" call replicating the office number of Union home minister Amit Shah.
