Actor Jacqueline Fernandez, who is currently under investigation by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a money laundering case, has been granted permission by a Delhi court to travel abroad. The actress is being investigated by the ED in £20 million extortion case involving alleged conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.

The ED had issued a Lookout Circular (LOC) against Jacqueline, effectively curbing her freedom to travel overseas during the course of the investigation. The actress had applied before the court to suspend this LOC and allow her to travel abroad to attend the IIFA Awards in the UAE. The actor briefly withdrew her permission when the awards were postponed.

The court allowed her application but with a set of conditions. A report quoted Additional Sessions Judge Praveen Singh, as saying, “Considering the facts and circumstances, the application at hand is allowed. The applicant is granted permission to travel to Abu Dhabi, UAE from 31.05.2022 till 06.06.2022 and for this given period, the LOC against the applicant issued in this case shall stand suspended.”

The actress has also been asked to submit Rs 50,00,000 as a guarantee of her return to the country as a condition for this permission. The court said, “The applicant shall submit an FDR to the tune of Rs 50,00,000 along with an undertaking that in case of her non-return, the FDR shall stand suspended and shall also provide a surety of Rs 50,00,000. The applicant shall submit her itinerary, place of stay and the number at which she can be contacted. On her return, the applicant shall inform the investigating agency about her return.”

On the work front, Jackie will be next seen on screen in mystery thriller ‘Vikrant Rona’. Directed by Anup Bhandari, the movie also features Kichcha Sudden, Nirup Bhandari and Neetha Ashok. The movie will be released in six languages including Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi, and English, on July 28. Actor Salman Khan recently announced that his banner Salman Khan Films (SKF) has come on board as North India presenters for the film.

Jackie also has ‘Cirkus’ alongside Ranveer Singh. Helmed by Rohit Shetty, the movie is said to be an adaptation of the Shakespearean play ‘The Comedy of Errors’.
