Ali Zafar to face defamation case filed by Meesha Shafi

The Lahore High Court has decided to proceed with a defamation case filed by singer and actor Meesha Shafi against singer Ali Zafar.

Justice Asim Hafeez overturned Wednesday the stay order granted by the sessions court.

Shafi had filed a Rs2 billion defamation suit against Zafar but the sessions court had stayed the proceedings.

Subsequently, Shafi’s counsel filed an appeal in the LHC.

The case will proceed along with a Rs2 billion defamation suit filed by Zafar against Shafi.

Earlier this month, Shafi has rejected reports that she was reaching a compromise or settlement with Ali Zafar.

She was talking to media outside a Lahore’s sessions court on Monday where she is facing defamation charges from singer Ali Zafar.

“I just faced cross-examination in the court,” she said. “These reports are totally baseless.”

The singer declined to comment about Ali Zafar and asked reporters to ask her questions about herself instead.

Shafi refused to admit that Zafar had suffered financial losses due to her allegations of sexual harassment.

She said that financially and repute wise, the plaintiff enjoyed record-breaking revenue as boasted by his film “Teefa in Trouble”. He also received accolades and awards after her tweets.

She said he had also been awarded by the government and PM Imran Khan even named him as an ambassador for NUML.

Shafi said her complaint against cyberbullying and harassment was still pending with FIA.

She said she approximately earned Rs3.5 million in 2021.
