Jacqueline Fernandez will be named as an accused in a multi-crore money laundering case linked to alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar and others, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) investigating the case has said. The Kick actress has been questioned multiple times by the agency in this case, the last being in June. The ED has alleged that Chandrashekhar used illegal money to purchase gifts for Jacqueline which he had extorted by cheating high-profile people. Now, all eyes are on the prosecution that will follow and what the future holds for the actress.
R Madhavan reacts to Jacqueline Fernandez case
Actor R Madhavan, who was present at a press event for the teaser launch of his upcoming film Dhokha Round D Corner, spoke about the matter briefly. He wished that Jacqueline "got out of trouble soon". When asked whether the film industry will be seen in a negative light due to the case involving leading Bollywood actress Jacqueline, Madhavan said, " I don't think this is affecting the image of the country. If fact, in our film fraternity, there have been less number of tax raids. Everyone is paying their dues and working with full honesty. I don't think it has a reflection on the industry. Higher taxpayers are from this industry."
