Money laundering case: Conman Sukesh took names of Shilpa Shetty, Kartik Aryan, Shraddha
The Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar is taking several twists and turns with names of Bollywood celebrities coming out every day. While Jacqueline Fernandez and Nora Fatehi received expensive gifts from the conman, it has been learnt that Sukesh was also in touch with other renowned names from the Tinsel Town like Kartik Aaryna, Shraddha Kapoor and Shilpa Shetty Kundra among others, reports Hindustan Times quoting news agency ANI.
As per the recent reports, several other actors from the industry are under the Enforcement Directorate (ED) scanner, currently probing the case.
Chandrashekhar is a conman who used to call people using a spoofing app, impersonating government officials. The money laundering took place when he was in Rohini jail.
Chandrashekhar has been following the same modus operandi in all his conning cases. Actor Jacqueline Fernandez told ED a similar account that he told her that he belonged to a political family, owned Sun TV and wanted her to feature in films produced by him.
According to an ANI, Chandrashekhar has named many Bollywood personalities. ED officials will look into the matter of whether these Bollywood personalities were the conman's target or whether they share any connection with Sukesh.
Sukesh reportedly told ED that he knew Shradhha since 2015 and even helped her in an NCB case. He also claimed that he was planning to co-produce his next movie Captain India starring Kartik.
When Raj Kundra was in jail in connection with a porn racket case, Chandrashekhar reportedly contacted Shilpa Shetty for Kundra's conditional release.
