Nora Fatehi: Jacqueline attempted to destroy my career to further her own interests

Leading actors Nora Fatehi (Of Baahubali fame) and Jacqueline Fernandez (Of Ram Setu fame) are hitting the headlines and for all the wrong reasons. The actresses who are reportedly in talks to share screen space with Pawan Kalyan in his highly anticipated film Hari Hari Veera Mallu, have got into a legal battle.

Yesterday Nora (December 13) filed a defamation suit against Jacqueline Fernandez, alleging Fernandez sought to criminally defame her in order to destroy her career to further her own interests, since they are both working in the same industry and have similar backgrounds, amongst other reasons.

In the complaint accessed by IANS, she also claimed that Fernandez has also maliciously attempted to absolve herself from her actions in another criminal proceedings which are absolutely unrelated to her. 

Now in the latest twist of events, Jacqueline’s lawyer has said that his client has said nothing in public about Nora Fatehi and hence, the question of defaming her does not arise. In an interview with ETimes, advocate Prashant Patil said, “Jacqueline has not made any statement in front of any electronic or print media against Nora or for that matter, any other person. She has consciously avoided talking about the Enforcement Directorate proceedings. Till date she has maintained the sanctity of law and because the matter is sub-judice she has always avoided speaking in front of print and social media. Having said that, we have not received any official copy of the suit filed by Nora. Once we receive an official confirmation or an order of the Honourable Court, we will respond to it legally.”

The lawyer further added, “My client has the utmost respect for Nora. There definitely has been some sort of miscommunication. Quoting anybody's reply, filed before an adjudicating authority, is a matter of pure judicial proceeding. Any statement made during the course of arguments made before a judicial proceeding cannot be quoted in the public domain, the way it has been quoted now. My client has no intention to defame Nora or for that matter anybody else. If Jacqueline is dragged to any legal court, she will respond legally to protect her own dignity,” he added.

Both Nora and Jacqueline have been questioned several times by the ED in connection with 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
