Nora Fatehi has filed a lawsuit against Jacqueline Fernandez, accusing the actress of making defamatory statements to destroy her career.
She has also filed a case against 15 media outlets for “carrying forward and circulating” Jacqueline’s remarks.
Nora also claimed that Jacqueline and the media outlets “were acting in connivance with each other”.
The lawsuit was in connection to the Rs. 200 Crore extortion case in which Sukesh Chandrasekhar is the main accused.
Both Nora and Jacqueline were questioned over the matter.
Nora Fatehi has now filed a lawsuit against Jacqueline, who is named ‘Accused No. 1’.
She said in her petition: “A conspiracy by the Accused No. 1 to ensure the financial, social, and personal downfall of the Complainant was hatched, and enacted by the said action.
“Her rapidly progressing career quite obviously has threatened her rivals who are unable to compete with her on a fair footing.
“It has started to become evident that the aforementioned rivals being unable to compete with the Complainant fairly in the industry have started to try and tarnish her reputation which would cause her loss of work and hence would open up greener pastures for her rivals in the industry.
“That the Complainant is aggrieved of defamatory remarks made by the accused persons against the Complainant, hence the present complaint.
