The bollywood actor is one of the accused in a Rs 200 crore money laundering case that involves alleged conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar. On November 15, 2022, Jacqueline Fernandez was granted regular bail in the case. Fernandez was not arrested in the case.
Additional Sessions Judge Shailendra Malick who had earlier posted the matter for Friday after the ED sought time to file a detailed reply to her application, gave the final court order on Friday.
During the court hearing, Fernandez's lawyer argued that the actor needed to travel to Dubai as she was under a contractual obligation and could be sued over her absence at the event. The actor's lawyer also told the Patiala House Court that she has also been nominated for the Oscars recently which is a matter of pride for the country.

In December last year, the Bollywood actor had moved a similar plea seeking permission to travel abroad to visit her ill mother in Bahrain, but withdrew it as the court wasn't willing to allow her to travel abroad.
The Delhi court had also granted exemption from personal appearance to the Bollywood actor for one day in the money laundering case. Additional Sessions Judge Shailender Malik, who was scheduled to hear the arguments on framing charges in the matter, adjourned the matter for February 15.
