Mumbai: Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi has files defamation suit against Jacqueline Fernandez. Nora claimed that Jacqueline made the “defamatory accusation for malicious reasons”.

Today, Jacqueline appeared before Delhi’s Patiala House court in connection with the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving fraudster Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
On November 24, a Delhi court adjourned the matter to December 12 after the prosecution sought time to prepare arguments on the charge sheet. The Patiala House Court today adjourned the hearing in the case to December 20.
