As per a report, post Ali Zafar’s defamation case against Meesha, a Pakistani Court has awarded 3 years of jail term to Meesha for causing ‘irreparable damages to his career thanks to the false case’.

Ali has been fighting this prolonged battle since 2018 now after Meesha levelled the allegations at him around the time the #MeToo movement was gaining momentum everywhere in the world.

Meesha, however, is not at all happy with the judgement.

She apparently told an international portal, ‘Which woman has got justice in a case of this nature and at what cost?’.

Meesha, at the time of accusing Ali, had said, ‘I have been subjected, on more than one occasion, to sexual harassment of a physical nature at the hands of a colleague from my industry: Ali Zafar.

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.’

Ali in a long statement categorically denied all allegations by issuing a statement.

The ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ actor filed a defamation case against Meesha along with eight other people who accused him. Meanwhile, her lawyers are set to challenge the charge against her.

While denying all allegations, Zafar had penned, ‘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.
