Earlier, Meesha Shafi had accused colleague and singer-actor Ali Zafar of sexual harassment.
Meesha alleged that Zafar had harassed her on “more than one occasion,” adding that, “These incidences did not happen when I was young, or just entering the industry. This happened to me despite the fact that I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind! This happened to me as a mother of two children.”
On the other hand, Ali Zafar categorically denied all claims of harassment lodged against him by Meesha. He said, “I categorically deny any and all claims of harassment lodged against me by Ms Shafi.”
The Dear Zindagi star has revealed his intentions of taking to matter to court in order to “address this professionally and seriously rather than to lodge any allegations”. He accused Meesha of disrespecting the #MeeToo campaign by “contesting personal vendettas on social media”.
“Ultimately I am a strong believer that the truth always prevails,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, Ali Zafar also sent a legal notice of Rs 100 million to Meesha Shafi.
According to the notice, a defamation suit would be filed against Meesha upon her failure to issue an apology to Ali on the electronic media within two weeks.
