Earlier, singer and actress Meesha Shafi has alleged Ali Zafar sexually harassed her on more than one occasion.
The singer took to Twitter to speak up about her experience stating “my conscience does not allow me to be silent anymore.”
“Sharing this because I believe that by speaking out about my own experience of sexual harassment, I will break the culture of silence that permeates through our society. It is not easy to speak out. But it is harder to stay silent. My conscience will not allow it anymore #MeToo,” Shafi tweeted.
This is the first incident of a Pakistani celebrity alleging a colleague harassed her.
