Following the harassment allegations by Meesha Shafi, Teefa in Trouble actor Ali Zafar has decided to deal the matter in the court of law.
Earlier today, Meesha Shafi posted a note on her Twitter account, accusing Ali Zafar of sexual harassment on multiple occasions. Talking to Dunya News, Zafar denied sharing his views on the issue at first but later, posted his statement on Twitter.
”I am deeply aware and in support of the global #MeToo movement and what it stands for. I am the father of a young girl and a young boy, a husband to a wife and a son to a mother. I am a man that has stood up for myself, my family, my colleagues and friends countless times in the face of slander, defamation and general unkindness. I will do the same today. I have nothing to hide. Silence is absolutely not an option,” read his statement.

Ali Zafar denied all the accusations labelled by Meesha shafi and announced to take the matter to the court.
“I categorically deny any and all claims of harassment lodged against me by Ms Shafi. I intend to take this through the courts of law and to address this professionally and seriously rather than to lodge any allegations here, contesting personal vendettas on social media and in turn disrespecting the movement, my family, the industry and my fans. Ultimately I am a strong believer that the truth, always prevails,” he wrote.
