Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez may land in legal trouble for her connection to alleged conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar after pictures of the two surfaced online, reported Times of India.
The photo, a mirror-picture taken by Chandrasekhar as Fernandez plants a kiss on his cheek, emerged on the internet weeks after Fernandez denied having any relationship with the alleged extortionist.
According to India Today, the picture was taken in April-May 2021 when Chandrasekhar was out of jail on interim bail, and the two are said to have met four times in Chennai.
Fernandez was first linked to the alleged extortionist in October, when his lawyers claimed that she was dating him.
The claims were subsequently rubbished by Fernandez’s spokesperson, who denied any link between the two.
Chandrasekhar is accused of swindling around INR 70 crore out of more than 100 people by posing as a politician’s relative and promising them lucrative jobs.
