Here’s what Nora Fatehi said in her statement
In the statement recorded by Nora Fatehi, she said that the case has been filed against Jacqueline Fernandez and various channels that have ruined her reputation in the public eye with false narratives. She talks about being called a gold digger and being accused of having a relationship with con man Sukesh Chandrasekhar. She said in the statement: “This has caused me a loss of financial gain and reputation. The reason I have filed this case is because of the ongoing ED case against Sukesh, who was accused of fraud to the tune of ₹200 crore, which I have nothing to do with and know nothing about.” Nora Fatehi also stated that she felt that was used as a scapegoat in the case. She said: “I feel that I have been used as a scapegoat in this case in the media to protect certain people and because I am an outsider and I have been taken as a soft target and I want compensation for all the damages, caused to my career,” as reported by NDTV.com. In the statement, Nora Fatehi sought compensation as all this has damaged her reputation and career. Jacqueline Fernandez is yet to respond to Nora Fatehi’s statement.
