Ali Zafar broke down in tears while talking about allegations of harassment levelled against him by Meesha Shafi live on national television on Sunday night. He asked his accuser to end the ‘fiasco’.
He asked, Meesha Shafi, if she takes one step forward in ending the fiasco, he will take ten. Reminding Shafi of long acquaintance, Zafar urged her to resolve the matter. “We have known each other for a while now. Even our kids have played together.”
While talking to media on live channel, the singer losing control over his emotions stated: “I have stayed silent for a year on the topic, whenever an allegation like this is placed on any man or woman, it completely destroys them.”
In April 2018, Shafi claimed she was harassed by Zafar on multiple occasions. Zafar denied the allegations and filed a defamation suit against Shafi. The suit, claiming damages of Rs1 billion, was filed under the Defamation Ordinance 2002.
In the notice, the singer claimed Shafi damaged his reputation through false allegations of harassment.
In a hard-hitting interview, the singer maintained that he was targeted on social media through fake accounts but never responded to such campaigns. They wanted to crush me completely, he said.
‘I have been getting threats from fake Instagram profiles.’
