Sexual harassment at the hands of fellow artists in very common in film or drama industry. Recently, we have seen many cases in Hollywood as well as in Bollywood and Lollywood. With many participating in “Me Too” movement, Meesha Shafi also came forward with an allegation on a fellow artist. Yes, Meesha Shafi has accused Ali Zafar of Sexual harassment.

Today, Meesha Shafi, the mother of two, took to Twitter and shared a picture stating her story of getting harassed by Ali Zafar.

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

In the picture, quoting her experience, she said, “I have been subjected 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 be despite the fact that I am an empowered, accomplished woman who is known for speaking her mind! This happened to me as a mother of two children.”

She also added, “Ali is someone I have known for many years and someone I shared the stage with. I feel betrayed by his behavior and his attitude and I know that I am not alone.”

We are totally shocked with this revelation by Meesha Shafi on being sexually harassed by Ali Zafar. What do you guys think about this scandal?
