The Enforcement Directorate has seized assets worth Rs 7.27 crore, including a Rs 7.12 crore fixed deposit and a Rs 15 lakh payment made on Chandrashekhar’s behalf to a script writer.

Chandrashekhar allegedly handed the actor presents worth 5.71 crore from the 200 crore he allegedly extorted from the family of Shivinder Singh, the previous owner of Ranbaxy who was sentenced in 2019 in a money laundering case, according to the Enforcement Directorate.

Chandrashekhar has stated that the two were dating.

The lawsuit against Chandrashekhar was filed when Aditi Singh, Shivinder Singh’s wife, accused him of defrauding her of money after assuring her that he would arrange for her husband’s release.

As the inquiry into Chandrashekhar grew, details of his opulent lifestyle emerged, including a beachside property in Chennai and a collection of 23 automobiles, including a Ferrari, Bentley, and Rolls Royce.

The actress has been questioned by investigators about her ties to the conman. She is said to have admitted to getting a 1.5 million dollar loan from Chandrashekhar, as well as presents such as a 52 lakh rupee horse, a 9 lakh rupee Persian cat, gem-studded earrings, and a Hermes bracelet. She is also said to have “acquired” a Mini Cooper automobile, which she returned later.

According to reports, the central agency discovered that Chandrashekhar paid large sums of money to the Bollywood actor’s family.

Chandrashekhar’s lawyer published a letter written by the conman inside the jail earlier this year, in which the conman claimed that his gifts to the actor were regular as in any relationship.

“As I have mentioned before, I and Jacqueline were in a relationship, seeing each other, and the relationship was not based on any kind of monetary benefits like the way it’s projected, commented, and trolled in a bad light (sic),” he wrote.

“The relationship has lots of love and respect for each other without any expectations. Kindly requesting everyone to stop projecting her in a bad way, as it’s not easy on her, who has only loved without expecting anything. As I have mentioned before that she has no involvement in the ongoing money-laundering case,” the letter added.

“I have gifted her things and done things for her family, are normal things one would do for his loved one in a relationship. It’s personal. I don’t understand why it’s being made such a big deal. At the same time, I would like to again certain that none of this was ‘proceeds of so-called crime’. It’s all from legitimate earnings and the same would be proved in the court of law very soon,” Chandrashekhar wrote.
