Update : 13 Dec 2022, 11:09

Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi has filed a defamation suit against actress Jacqueline Fernandez alleging that Jacqueline made "defamatory imputations due to malicious reasons". 

Jacqueline and Nora were both questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a 200-crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.

Nora has also alleged that Fernandez made imputations to destroy her career to further her own interests. Nora submitted through her counsel that Jacqueline made a "false statement" which was "unnecessary and unwarranted."

In response to Jacqueline Fernandez's defamatory comments, Bollywood actor Nora Fatehi reportedly filed a lawsuit on Monday against the former as well as 15 media outlets.

"Jacqueline Fernandes sought to criminally defame the complainant in order to destroy her career to further her own interests, since they are both working in the same industry and have similar backgrounds, amongst other reasons," Nora Fatehi said in her plea.

The Enforcement Directorate has questioned both Nora Fatehi and Jacqueline Fernandez in the Rs 200 crore extortion case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar. Jacqueline is considered an accused in the case, whereas Nora is a witness.
