Prominent Pakistani actor Ali Zafar has finally sent a legal notice to singer-actor Meesha Shafi demanding her to apologize over the sexual harassment allegations she recently made against him or face defamation suit of Rs 100 crore. After Shafi had last Thursday in a shocking statement accused Zafar of subjecting her to "sexual harassment of a physical nature" and that too on more than one occasions. Though strongly retaliating Zafar "categorically denied all claims of harassment" made by Shafi and said that he "intends to take this through the courts of law". And now in a legal notice, Zafar has asked Shafi to delete the tweet of allegations and issue an apology otherwise he will file a defamation case against her. Even Shafi's lawyer, Muhammad Ahmad Pansota has also confirmed that his client has received the legal notice. "We have received the notice and are examining its contents. The contents of Meesha's statements with regard to Ali Zafar are based in truth, and therefore we dispel this notice," he tweeted. A day after Shafi accused Zafar of sexual harassment, more women from Pakistan's entertainment industry had also come forward to allege that the actor misbehaved with them on various occasions.
