In that Jacqueline Fernandez wasn’t the only actress conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar was sending gifts to. There were several others, many of whom are currently in a state of panic.
The shocking details uncovered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the Conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar case have caused a state of panic in Bollywood. Last week, Jacqueline Fernandez, in her statement to the ED, had revealed that Sukesh Chandrashekhar gave her two pairs of diamond earrings, two Hermes bracelets, three Birkin bags and a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes.
Now, it turns out that Jacqueline wasn’t the only one Sukesh was sending such hampers to. Smitten by Bollywood’s glamour, Sukesh Chandrashekhar had been targeting several actresses, some of whom are well-known A-listers. Sukesh would send these luxury gifts under different names to ensure anonymity and to protect his identity.
An insider exclusively told IndiaToday.in, “Sukesh was sending random gifts and hampers to a lot of Bollywood actresses. That too under different initials and names. He was easily smitten by the looks of Bollywood actresses, and before Jacqueline, he tried the same stunt with a few others. Fortunately, none of these big A-list actresses fell for it or even entertained these lavish gifts.”
Once the news of the conman’s alleged fraud exploded, several of these actresses called each other up just to crosscheck if what they had received was indeed something sent by Sukesh. Since Sukesh Chandrashekhar would always make sure to use different names — like in the case of Jacqueline Fernandez, he introduced himself as Shekhar Ratna Vela — it has become doubly difficult to deduce if the gifts were actually from him.
