The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has disclosed that the jailed conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar even targeted three more actresses.
They were Sara Ali Khan, Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar. As per the ED, Sukesh Chandrashekhar allegedly used extorted money to send expensive gifts to these actresses.
The 32-year-old Sukesh Chandrashekhar is now in Delhi’s Tihar Jail. He allegedly extorted Rs 215 crore from Aditi Singh, the wife of the owner of Ranbaxy.
Sukesh posed as an officer — sometimes as Law Secretary, Home Secretary or even as the representative of Home Minister Amit Shah. He has a duping history for extorting Rs 215 crore from Aditi Singh on the pretext of helping her husband get out of jail.
Sukesh had also targeted Sara Ali Khan in 2021. He had introduced himself on text as Suraj Reddy.

Conman Sukesh also told that CEO Mrs Irani had tried to contact Sara Ali Khan. Mrs Irani is an associate of Sukesh Chandrashekhar whose job was to convince actors to meet him.
Sara was also questioned by ED officials regarding the gifts. But she constantly refused Sukesh’s offer.
Sara Ali Khan had also told the ED that after refusing Sukesh, she agreed to receive a box of chocolates from him.
Besides Sara, he also targeted Janhvi Kapoor through his wife Leena Maria Paul. The conman had allegedly gifted items worth over Rs 18 lakh.
Janhvi also informed the ED that apart from money, she was gifted a Christian Dior tote bag by Leena’s mother on the day of the event.
Bhumi Pednekar was also on his target list. She was targeted by his associate Pinky Irani, who approached Bhumi pretending to be the Vice President HR of News Express Post in 2021.
It was Pinky Irani who had sent message to Bhumi saying that Sukesh Chandrasekhar is a billionaire and he wanted to gift her a car.
