Mumbai: We all know Sri Lankan beauty and Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez who remains in news for her charming personality and closeness with ‘Dabangg’ actor Salman Khan. During the covid induced lockdown Jacky was seen spending her quarantine at Sallu’s farm and people started to speculate something more than a friendship brewing between the two. But a new picture of Jacqueline has left netizens confused as a couple of cozy pictures of her with a conman went viral on social media.
In the viral photos on the internet, Jacqueline could be seen with conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar, who is a prime accused in a Rs 200 crore extortion case. Interestingly, this came at a time when weeks before Jacqueline had denied dating the conman. As per a co-star of the actress, the 36-year-old might go to her friend and mentor superstar Salman Khan to seek help in this case as they share a strong bond.
Speaking about the viral pictures, in one of the snaps, Jacqueline could be seen planting a kiss on Sukesh’s cheek while he captured the loved-up moment on his mobile camera. While, in another one, both could be seen posing for a selfie.
As per sources, these pictures were taken around April-June when Sukesh was out on interim bail. As per ED sources, Chandrasekhar and Jacqueline met around four times in Chennai, for which he even rented a private jet for the actress.
Notably, in October this year, Sukesh’s lawyer Anant Malik, in his arguments, had claimed that Jacqueline and Sukesh were dating. However, Jacqueline’s spokesperson had denied the relationship allegations. Also, Chandrasekhar used to pamper Jacqueline with chocolates and flowers and used spoofing technology for communication, to hide his real identity.
Jacqueline reportedly fell prey to Sukesh Chandrashekar’s racket through his girlfriend and partner Leena Paul.
On the professional front, Jacqueline has shared screen with Salman Khan in a couple of films like ‘Race 3’ and ‘Kick’.
