Another actor from the Indian film industry has come under the scanner of the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case. This time, it’s Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez. Jacqueline has received a summon from the ED for the second time in a case related to conman Sukesh Chandrasekar. As per reports, the actress has been asked to appear before ED on September 25. In August, the actress was questioned as a witness in the same case for about 6 hours. As per reports, the ED wants to find out if Jacqueline was a beneficiary of the laundered money. It has been reported that the actress’ statement will be recorded under section 50 of the PMLA. Media reports further claim that apart from Jacqueline, other actors, including Nora Fatehi may be summoned for questioning in the Sukesh case. An earlier report stated that Jacqueline became a victim of the conman’s racket after he began spoof calling her from Tihar Jail. Reportedly, the conman used to pretend to be a bigshot and Jacqueline believed him, after which, he even started sending her expensive flowers and chocolates as gifts, sources revealed. Earlier, the investigation had revealed that Sukesh Chandrasekhar made paths into Bollywood by flaunting his wealth, while he was in jail. It has been revealed that he was in touch with many celebrities from Bollywood. Coming back to Jacqueline, she was last seen in a horror-comedy co-starring Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor and Yami Gautam, which was released on an OTT platform just a while back. Jacqueline also has ‘Ram Setu’, ‘Attack’ and ‘Bachchan Pandey’ in the pipeline, apart from Salman Khan’s much-awaited ‘Kick 2′. At the same time, the actress’ personal life, too, seems to be making headlines. The last we heard, she was planning to move in with her beau, a South-based entrepreneur. The couple was reportedly planning to move in together in their newly purchased Juhu house. The cost of the bungalow is said to be Rs 175 crore!
