Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar just went in deeper in their case
Ali Zafar and Meesha Shafi’s case has been in the public eye since early 2018 when Meesha released a statement on Twitter accusing Ali Zafar of harassing her. Just a few hours after her tweet, Ali Zafar took to the platform as well to declare his innocence and deny the events.
After Meesha Shafi accused him of harassing her, Ali Zafar filed a defamation suit for 100 Crores against her
The notice sought damages for mental torture, loss of contacts, loss of reputation and loss of business opportunities which totaled to the amount of PKR 100 crores. The case has still not reached a verdict.
However, today it has come to light that Meesha has also sent Ali Zafar a defamation notice and is seeking damages. The suit has been filed in a Lahore’s session court. She is seeking much more in terms of damages by asking for PKR 200 crores
This comes to light after she sent a similar notice back in May when they both appeared on TV interviews to discuss their side of the stories.
For this one, other than merely seeking monetary compensation for the damages caused to her, Meesha has allegedly asked the court to declare the statements Ali Zafar has made against her as ‘false and malicious’. The suit asks Ali Zafar not to make further defamatory remarks against Meesha Shafi as the ones he has already made has hurt her goodwill and has done a considerable amount of damage to her reputation.
The notice further stated that statements he made against Meesha Shafi caused mental agony and thus she seeks damages for all the pain that has been caused to her.
This is the second notice of defamation Meesha Shafi’s legal team has made against Ali Zafar. In the first notice, they asked for Ali Zafar to clarify that he had been lying on national television and clear the name of their client Meesha Shafi.
Meesha’s lawyer Nighat Dad even posted the last legal notice on her Twitter account.
