Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar has recently broke down on National TV while talking about Meesha Shafi, who had accused him of sexual harassment last year.
Zafar was invited to Geo News show Naya Pakistan where he discussed the allegations and said, “I don’t know why she is doing this, one should ask her. All of us have been quietly suffering for so long. Not just me, but my family – my kids and my wife too. I haven’t said a single word in the last one year as I had decided to take action legally through court’s procedures. But they have been making fake accounts and tagging everyone who tries to hire me in tweets against me in order to ruin my career.”

Ali Zafar also took to Twitter to share a video in which he can be seen jamming with Meesha Shafi.
“Nobody expected you to carry a GoPro #Meesha, luckily I had something close to it at the jam you accused me at. 11 witnesses from this jam, 2 of them women who went to court several times to testify against you but proceedings were delayed. Apologise or #FaceTheCourtMeeshaShafi,” he wrote.

In April 2018, Meesha accused the actor of physically harassing her on “more than one occasion”. However, Ali denies the allegations and after two months, he slapped a defamation suit on her.
Meanwhile, the case against Ali made by Meesha have been dismissed by the court. To announce the news Ali took to Twitter and wrote, “Meesha Shafi’s case against me has been dismissed alongside the appeal made against the dismissal, the case in the court (now) is my (read: me) against her to pay for the damages that her false statement has (read: have) caused me, which naturally she is trying to run away from. I have also filed a case against all the fake and other accounts being used to run a campaign against me on social media. I have been quiet about all this for a year while thousands of disgusting tweets were posted against me, like a campaign every time a big event comes. But it’s time to expose the truth via due process of law for which I urge the FIA (Federal Investigation Agency) to take strict legal action and a prayer to our respected courts to decide the matter at earliest for which I would like everyone to join me in asking Miss Shafi to come to the court. #FaceTheCourtMeeshaShafi.” (sic)
