Jacqueline Fernandez is under investigation for her alleged connection to a money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
Conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar went all out to woo Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez. While a list of luxury items, cars, a horse and other gifts have been made public, a source tells IndiaToday.in that Sukesh also resorted to other tactics to impress Jacqueline.
SUKESH PROMISED SUPERHERO FILMS TO JACQUELINE
An insider reveals that Sukesh promised to produce a series of films for Jacqueline. Using fake alibis and dropping names of A-list producers, Sukesh allegedly told Jacqueline that he would even produce a Rs 500 crore three-part woman superhero project with her.
An insider reveals, “Sukesh knew very well that Jacqueline was looking for work in Bollywood. She wasn’t signing too many films and he used her vulnerability to woo her even more. In one such conversation, he promised her that he would produce India’s first woman superhero project with her that would involve Hollywood VFX artists, and it will be shot on a global scale. He told Jacqueline that she resembled Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie and she deserved a superhero series made around her.”
While Jacqueline treaded this entire conversation with caution, she was also partially convinced that he would actually mount a project of this scale for her. The insider further reveals that Sukesh did adequate homework and research on film budgets, production and dropped a lot of industry names to her during all these conversations.
