One of the hottest topics in the Pakistani entertainment industry nowadays is the sexual harassment allegation Meesha Shafi made against Ali Zafar.

People from almost all walks of life have been pretty polarized by this event; either side stands by their celebrity. The news was soon followed by Ali Zafar announcing that he would sue Meesha for defamation unless she brought relevant proof or apologized.

 

After a few months of silence from either celebrity, Ali Zafar’s legal team officially lodged their suit against Meesha Shafi. Ali Zafar sued Meesha for PKR 1 billion!

 

As news of Ali Zafar’s lawsuit began to circulate, Meesha and her team still kept mute, until yeterday, a member of Meesha’s legal team, Nighat Dad, spoke out against the lawsuit and Ali Zafar

Earlier in the day, the Sessions Court heard the case for the first time. Nighat began by taking a pretty strong stance regarding the premise of the defamation suit. According to her, Meesha, her team and the women who spoke out against Ali Zafar stood on the right side of history.

The term ‘cheap publicity’ was used by Ali Zafar’s legal team when they appeared in court today for the first time regarding this case.

According to Zafar’s team, the allegations are baseless, and furthermore, that the allegations made by Shafi were dismissed by the legal body that overlooks women’s safety and harassment in the workplace.

Ali Zafar was successful in getting a stay order in his favor; this basically means that Meesha Shafi cannot, legally, post anything defamatory statements against Ali Zafar across any medium, online or offline.
