Recently, actress Nora Fatehi filed a defamation case against Fernandez for allegedly ‘trying to tarnish her reputation’ and caused her loss of work in the film industry.

The Fatehi alleged that Jacqueline Fernandez made ‘defamatory imputations against her due to malicious reasons’. Fatehi has also mentioned names of some media organisations in her defamation suit.

“It has started to become evident that the aforementioned rivals being unable to compete with the Complainant fairly in the industry, have started to try and tarnish her reputation which would cause her loss of work,” Fatehi said in the defamation suit.

“That the complainant is aggrieved of defamatory remarks made by the accused persons against the complainant, hence the present complaint. It should be reiterated that these defamatory remarks were made by the Accused No. 1 initially which was further carried forward and circulated by the other accused persons, all of whom were acting io connivance with each other and a conspiracy by the Accused No. l to ensure the financial, social, and personal downfall of the Complainant was batched, and enacted by the said actions,” the suit added.

However, Jacqueline’s lawyer cleared that his client has never spoke anything in public against Fatehi.

On November 15, the court had granted regular bail to Jacqueline. She was not arrested in the case.

Fernandez has been named as an accused by the ED in the supplementary charge sheet. Fatehi has also been questioned by the ED in connection with the same case involving conman Sukesh.

Conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar was allegedly running the cheating and extortion racket from inside the Tihar Jail. Several jail officials and other associates from outside were also involved in the extortion racket.

The Delhi Police arrested Sukesh and his actress wife in September last year. So far, 13 people have been arrested in connection with the case.
