Jacqueline Fernandez is in news for rumours of dating jailed conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar. Though the actress's team clarified that the rumours hold no truth, a recent viral picture has a different story to tell. Netizens came across a loved-up throwback picture of Jacqueline and Sukesh which was apparently clicked in April-June when the latter was out on interim bail.
In the picture, Jacqueline can be seen planting a kiss on Sukesh's cheek and he captured the moment. Apart from the mirror selfie, another picture had surfaced on social media a few months ago. According to reports, Jacqueline and Sukesh met each other about 4 times in Chennai. It is being said that he arranged a private jet for her so that she could be with him.
Sukesh is currently serving a jail term for allegedly duping former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh's wife Aditi Singh of Rs 200 crores. On August 20, Jacqueline was questioned as a witness in the extortion case against the conman.
In October, Nora Fatehi was summoned to the Enforcement Directorate office in Mumbai to record her statement as a witness. Jacqueline was also called in for questioning again. Jacqueline's team then issued a statement dismissing rumours of the actress's relationship with the conman. A statement was issued and it read, "Jacqueline Fernandez is being called to testify as a witness by the ED. She has duly recorded her statements and in future will also be completely co-operating with the agency in the investigations. Jacqueline also categorically denies alleged slanderous statements made about relationship with the involved couple."
The rumour of Jacqueline and Sukesh's relationship sparked off when the latter's lawyer told the media, "Jacqueline and Sukesh were dating, these are my instructions, this is straight from the horse’s mouth."
