Hindi film actor Jacqueline Fernandez issued a statement on Saturday addressing a leaked intimate photo of her and conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar that went viral online.


Taking to her Instagram, the Bhoot Police actor requested the media to respect her privacy. She wrote, “This country and its people have always given me tremendous love and respect. This includes my friends from the media, from whom I have learned a lot. I am currently going through a rough patch but I am sure that my friends and fans will see me through it. It is with this trust that I would request my media friends to not circulate images of a nature that intrude my privacy and personal space. You would not do this to your own loved ones, am sure you would not do this to me either. Hoping that justice and good sense prevails. Thank you.”

The actor also disabled comments on the Instagram post.

Fernandez has been linked to Sukesh Chandrashekhar in connection to a Rs 200 crore money laundering case. She has appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED)  thrice until this point.

Earlier, the actress denied the “alleged slanderous statements” made about her relationship with Chandrashekhar and his wife Leena Maria Paul.


According to the chargesheet filed by ED, she received expensive gifts from Chandrashekhar and she confirmed the same. She alleged that he approached her under the pretext of being the owner of Sun TV. “Shekhar told me that he is a big fan. Soon he told me that I should do movies in south India and that Sun TV is producing many such movies. Since February, I was in touch with him. He gave me his number… and asked me to make calls on this number,” she said.

Sukesh Chandrashekhar has over 20 cases registered against him and was also allegedly running the extortion cases when he was in jail.
