A lot has conspired against Jacqueline Fernandez, and she has been making it to the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Her name cropped up in conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar's extortion case. Now, as per the latest ETimes report, Sukesh gifted a Tiffany diamond ring to propose to Jacqueline.
Following Jacqueline’s interrogation by Enforcement Directorate, it was revealed she received a lot of gifts worth crores from Sukesh. Several reports suggest that the duo was allegedly in a relationship. The new development suggests that he gave a diamond ring to the actress which had J and S as initials.
If we are to go by the recent reports, the alleged couple’s story blossomed when Suresh got in touch with Jacqueline by using the name of the Home Minister through a spoofing call to influence her. Later after they got close enough, the conman offered Rs 10 cr to Pinky for sorting out differences between him and Jacqueline as they had a fight around Valentine’s Day. Post which, he 'proposed' to Jacqueline by gifting her a diamond ring, reported ETimes.
Reportedly, Pinky Irani took many actresses/models to Tihar Jail to introduce them to Sukesh. During the ED investigation, it was also revealed that other actresses whom Sukesh tried to influence through Pinky included Bhumi Pednekar, Sara Ali Khan, and Janhvi Kapoor. While some of them agreed to receive expensive gifts, others denied.
Meanwhile, Sukesh, in his statement earlier opened up on his relationship with Jaqueline. The statement read, "I was in a relationship with Jacqueline and that was the reason I have given gifts to her. She has nothing to do with the case."
Recently, Jacqueline too shared a statement after her private picture with Sukesh went viral on the internet.
“This country and its people have always given me tremendous love and respect. This includes my friends from the media, from whom I have learned a lot. I am currently going through a rough patch but I am sure that my friends and fans will see me through it. It is with this trust that I would request my media friends to not circulate images of a nature that intrude my privacy and personal space. You would not do this to your own loved ones, am sure you would not do this to me either. Hoping that justice and good sense prevails. Thank you,” the statement read.
