Claiming that Actor Ali Zafar has caused her “mental torture and agony,” and damaged her reputation and goodwill, singer Meesha Shafi has filed a two billion rupees damages suit against him in Lahore sessions court.

She has also asked the court to declare Ali’s statements as “false, malicious and defamatory” and that they ruined her reputation. She also demanded that he be restrained from making any more statements against her.

Ali had earlier filed a one billion rupees defamation suit against Meesha that is underway in Lahore sessions court.

 Meesha had filed a sexual harassment case against him which was dismissed since it could not be determined that the alleged sexual harassment took place in a workplace. Ali then filed a defamation case against Meesha, and Meesha sent him a defamation notice in May. She has now filed the defamation suit.
