Singer Meesha Shafi’s manager recorded his statement before a court in the sexual harassment case against singer Ali Zafar, according to a statement.

In the allegation, Syed Farhan Ali from Lahore, said that he was a musician himself and had also been managing Meesha Shafi on a project-based basis for the past four years.

Farhan claimed that he was present at the music session during which Meesha had alleged that Ali Zafar harassed her.

The manager further said that he had not seen any act of sexual harassment from Ali Zafar.

“I was not focusing my eyes on the plaintiff and the defendant and a couple of times, I went out of the room and could not confirm whether it happened or did not happen,” he added.

However, Syed Farhan Ali did confirm that after the session was over, Meesha had told him that Ali Zafar made her uncomfortable and was not a good person, and even that she hated him.

Earlier, Meesha Shafi alleged that musician and actor Ali Zafar subjected her to sexual harassment on more than one occasions.

Ali Zafar has responded to Shafi’s allegations of sexual harassment on Twitter, saying that he categorically denies “any and all claims of harassment lodged against me by Ms. Shafi”. He added that he intends to take the matter to court.

Meesha Shafi is a prominent figure in Pakistan’s entertainment industry: she has featured prominently in Coke Studio, in international cinema like The Reluctant Fundamentalist, and local drama serials like Mor Mahal.

While, Ali Zafar is known for well-known musical tracks like ‘Channo’ and ‘Rockstar’. He is also a regular fixture on Coke Studio and is a sought-after artiste for large-scale events such as Lux Style Awards and PSL.
