Chandrasekhar was accused by the ED of using money extorted from high profile individuals, including former Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh's wife Aditi Singh, to buy gifts for Jacqueline Fernandez. The agency has questioned Fernandez several times in this instance, most recently being in June. In addition to the ₹15 lakh cash, the ED temporarily attached the actor's finances under the PMLA in April because it deemed them to be "proceeds of crime."
In her response to the court through her legal team, the actor maintained that her fixed deposits are from her own money (Money-Saving Tips Will Help You Manage Your Monthly Budget Better) and not from what was gifted to her by Chandrashekhar. “The actor claimed that deposits are from the actor's own legitimate sources of income and much before in time from even knowing that the main accused Chandrashekhar even existed in this world,” Her lawyer has claimed she was a "victim of a conspiracy".
