Ali Zafar’s legal team slams back Meesha Shafi and her brigade

Lahore, 15th January: Singer Meesha Shafi and Leena Ghani are close friends so her false and malicious statements to damage Ali Zafar come as no surprise.

Baaghi TV: This was stated by Barrister Ambreen Qureshi, the legal counsel of singer-actor Ali Zafar, in a response to allegations made by the make-up artist Leena Ghani in her defamation suit against Mr Zafar in the High Court.

Barrister Ambreen Qureshi stated that Meesha had helped Leena establish her career as a makeup artist so saying Leena was not known to Meesha was a blatant lie.

Ambreen stated, “Leena is also closely associated with Meesha Shafi’s lawyer Nighat Dad as one of the organisers of Aurat March.”

The lawyer claimed that Ms Ghani had openly and publicly expressed hatred and towards men and had been found guilty of running a smear campaign against Ali Zafar and falsely accusing him by the FIA alongside Meesha Shafi and 7 others.

Barrister Ambreen said, “Leena Ghani’s baseless and blatantly false allegations, which have been refuted by an eye witness already, seem like a desperate attempt to pressure Mr. Zafar into withdrawing his criminal charges against her as proceedings begin on 18th January 2021. The penalty for which can be up to three years in jail.”

She took to her Twitter account to express:

 

She concluded, “Ali Zafar and his team are undeterred by these intimidation tactics and threats, and we will not allow for the honourable #MeToo movement for genuine victims of harassment to be misused by a closely aligned group of friends and associates to further their agendas by using Ali Zafar as a scapegoat.”

Ali Zafar’s lawyer also revealed that there was a criminal case against Ms Leena which is also pending, under section 476 for filing a false affidavit in the honourable Lahore High Court and they would be filing Ali Zafar’s reply to Leena’s frivolous suit in Sindh High Court.
