Nora accuses denies knowing conman Sukesh personally
As reported by the portal, Nora Fatehi said in a statement, "Many actresses are dying to be taken care of by Sukesh. Initially, I did not know who Sukesh was. Later, I thought he used to work at a company called LS Corporation. I neither had any personal contact nor did I ever have any conversations with him. I had no clue about this and I never met him. The only time I saw him was when the ED confronted me with him at its office."
Jacqueline Fernandez's testimony
While Jacqueline Fernandez said in her testimony that Sukesh Chandrashekhar "played with my emotions and made my life hell." She said, "Sukesh misled me, and ruined my career and my livelihood. "Pinky Irani (the woman who introduced the actor to the conman) convinced my makeup artist, Shaan Muthathil, that he (Chandrashekhar) was an important official from the Home Ministry."
Jacqueline further said, "He introduced himself as the owner of Sun TV and claimed J Jayalalitha was his aunt. Chandrashekhar said he was a big fan, and said I should do films in South India too, and as the owner of Sun TV, they had many projects lined up. We should try to work together in south Indian movies. He never mentioned he was calling from jail or that he was in jail. He used to call from one corner with a curtain and a sofa in the background."
"He did not contact me after August 8, 2021, and I later got to know he was arrested for impersonating senior government officials of the Home Ministry and the law ministry. Pinky Irani always had an intention of cheating me. I was fooled by Shekhar (the name used by the conman to interact with the actor). At the time I got to know about Shekhar's criminal background, I got to know that his real name is Sukesh. Pinky was aware of Shekhar's activity and background. But she never disclosed this to me."
