"I felt it and I knew what happened". Do not pass judgement either way because the truth always does prevail. It is not easy to speak out. but it is harder to stay silent. "My conscience will not allow it anymore #MeToo", she added in the wake of sexual harassment incidents happening across the globe. Zafar, who has been a part of Hindi films like Tere Bin Laden (2010), Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011), Kill Dil (2014) and Dear Zindagi (2016), is now being accused by two more women.

"It has been an extremely traumatic experience for me and my family".

Besides her popular Coke Studio Pakistan songs like Jugniji, Meesha has starred in Mira Nair's film The Reluctant Fundamentalist.

Hollywood came together to support the #TimesUp movement and #MeToo when Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and other big names were accused of sexual harassment over the years at the workplace. In his statement, he said, "I categorically deny any and all claims of harassment lodged against me by Shafi".
