They say love will take you places, but it does not seem to be working out in favour of Jacqueline Fernandez.
She has been making it to the headlines for all the wrong reasons and nothing seems to be going right for the Bollywood actress. From being caught in a storm of police interrogation and probe for her connection with conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar in Rs 200 Crore extortion case to her personal life going public, Fernandez has been braving it all while keeping a strong face!

However, as per the latest report, Jacqueline Fernandez had informed Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan of her marriage plans with Sukesh who had introduced himself as a “businessman and politician”. However, they warned the actress against him.
A Free Press Journal report quoted a senior police official, who stated that “She was advised by her co-stars to be wary of Sukesh but she continued meeting him and accepting expensive gifts like cars and pedigree pets.”
Delhi police’s Economic Offences Wing head, Ravindra Yadav, said, “Sukesh even gifted the actor’s manager Prashant a Ducati bike to impress her. The bike has been seized.”
However, Jacqueline Fernandez chose to overlook conman Sukesh’s criminal past and she continued to indulge in financial transactions with him, the Enforcement Directorate has stated in its charge sheet.
The ED also claimed that apart from her, even Jacquline’s family members and friends have financially benefited from the relationship. The officials also added that the lure of money ensured that the criminal history of the person she was engaging with did not matter.
Furthermore, the agency has also claimed that Fernandez consistently shifted her stance with regard to the gifts being received by her and her relatives. But, only upon her confrontation with the evidence and statements on record, she divulged into the details.
The charge sheet quoted by Free Press Journal further stated that "Investigation so far has revealed that the accused actor is directly or indirectly involved in the proceeds of crime and acquired, possessed and used part proceeds of crime - valuable gifts for herself and her family members in India and abroad and thereby committed an offence of money laundering u/s 3 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002, which is punishable u/s 4 of PMLA, 2002."
The actress has been denying of certain assets being purchased by Sukesh for her and the investigation for the same is currently in process.
