Nora Fatehi has slapped Jacqueline Fernandez with a defamation suit over the Rs 200 crore money laundering scandal involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Nora’s name had popped up during the ongoing investigation in the money laundering case, along with Jacqueline.

In her plea to the court, Nora stated that Jaqueline Fernandez had sought to criminally defame her in order to decimate her career to further her own interests as they both are working in the same industry with similar backgrounds. Fatehi laments the fact that she lost a lot of deals because of Fernandez.
