Earlier this month, in a plea before the Appellate Authority of PMLA, Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez shared several celebrities including Nora Fatehi were also conned by the main accused Sukesh Chandrashekhar in the INR2 billion extortion case.
However, Fernandez expressed shock at the fact that Fatehi has been made a witness in the case, whereas she should be among the accused. Now, according to a report in Hindustan Times, the latter has denied having any sort of connection with Fernandez.
Fatehi was questioned by the Delhi Police's Economic Offences Wing on September 2, in connection with the money laundering case involving Chandrashekhar and Fernandez. Answering 50 questions, Fatehi said that not only does she not have anything to do with Fernandez but she wasn't aware of Chandrashekhar’s criminal background either.
The actor was said to have been cooperative with the investigators. Fatehi was asked more than 50 questions, running the gamut from what gifts she received to who she spoke to and where she meet them. She and Fernandez were talking to Chandrashekhar separately.
Fatehi said Chandrashekhar’s wife called her up for a nail art function and they remained in touch. While she was gifted a BMW from Chandrashekhar, she revealed she had no clue about his criminal record. Nora is one of the judges on the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, along with Karan Johar and Madhuri Dixit. She is known for her hit dance numbers in Bollywood films.
