An Indian court is expected to make a decision about Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez’s bail request in a case involving money laundering.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED), a division of the Indian government responsible for looking into financial offenses, is looking into the 37-year-old actress. She has been charged with financial misconduct, and they want her taken into jail.
Prashant Patil, Fernandez’s attorney, maintains that there is no legal case against Fernandez and rejects the allegations. Because of Fernandez’s fame, the case has garnered media attention in India.
She won a beauty competition in her native Sri Lanka and was also a model before making her Bollywood acting debut in 2009.
Film reviewers frequently disparage Fernandez’s acting skills, yet she has been in several successful films with some of the greatest names in the business, like Saif Ali Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Salman Khan.
Alongside celebrities Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan, she has performed on stage both domestically and internationally. She has also served as a judge on a well-liked dance reality program.
The actress frequently appears on media lists of “most desirable” women, “the world’s sexiest Asian ladies,” and “the most well-known Indian celebrities.” She is a celebrity spokesperson for various major businesses.
However, she has been involved in an unsightly incident involving an accused conman, information about pricey gifts she got from him, and charges of money laundering against her since last year.
Officials from the ED have repeatedly requested her interviews, have accused her in court, and are now pushing for her arrest. She couldn’t be detained, a Delhi court said, until it had decided on her bail application.
According to officials, Chandrasekhar’s employees had forwarded Fernandez information concerning his suspected illegal actions on February 12 of last year, thus she was aware of him from the beginning of their connection.
The actress, however, claims that she accepted Ms. Irani’s explanation, which included the claims that “she had known Chandrasekhar for 13 years, that he was from a very nice family, and the newspaper pieces were fake news produced by his political opponents,” and reconnected with him a few days later. She claims that she ended their relationship in August of last year after learning of his re-arrest by police while still in custody.
