Meesha Shafi responded to the queries of the counsel for actor-cum-singer Ali Zafar in her first session of cross examination.
In defamation case’s cross examination session, Meesha shared that she wanted to resolve the issue privately but it could not happen.
“It became clear to me that this matter was not being resolved privately so I spoke up,” Meesha responded as per Dawn.com.
“The resolution would have looked like an acknowledgement or apology from plaintiff about his past behaviour,” she said.
Moreover, Meesha admitted tweeting a day before the recording of the first show of a concert on April 19, 2018 after the company wanted her to continue working with the plaintiff.
Meesha also refused to accept that the male singer suffered through financial losses during the case.
“Financially and repute wise, the plaintiff enjoyed record-breaking revenue as boasted by his film “Teefa in Trouble” and he also received accolades and awards,” she replied to a query.
Remember, Ali filed defamation suit against Meesha after she accused him of sexual harassment. He asked the court to issue a decree against Meesha and direct her to pay Rs1bn as damages.
