Bollywood star Nora Fatehi has been summoned by the Directorate of Execution (ED) for questioning in a money laundering case linked to suspected con artist Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
The development comes after the ED examined actor Jacqueline Fernandez as a witness in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case. Fernandez was examined for four hours in Delhi in August. The ED had registered its statement under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Chandrasekhar was arrested in 2017 for allegedly taking money from TTV Dhinakaran to bribe Election Commission officials to obtain from AIADMK a “two leaf” symbol for the Sasikala faction in a by-election for the seat of the RK Nagar Assembly in Tamil Nadu.
Nora Fatehi, who was born and raised in a Moroccan household living in Canada, moved to Saudi Arabia before entering Bollywood. Fatehi caught the spotlight with his special dance performance to the song Dilbar from the movie Satyamev Jayate. She has also been part of Street Dancer 3D, Bharat and Bhuj: The Pride Of India. She will also star in Satyameva Jayate 2, with John Abraham and Divya Khosla Kumar.
