  • These incidences did not happen when I was young, or just entering the industry. This happened to me even though I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind! This happened to me as a mother of two children.”Meesha wasn’t the only one to accuse Ali of sexual misconduct. Eight other women followed her, making similar allegations against Mere Brother Ki Dulhan actor. The actor has denied all allegations time and again, calling it a ‘vendetta’.

  • A statement by Ali Zafar mentioned, “I categorically deny 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.”
