It seems like much of the Pakistani entertainment industry is divided over the Meesha Shafi and Ali Zafar sexual harassment controversy.
Ever since the news first broke on Thursday evening, more and more local celebrities have come forward to pledge their support for either of the two.
Mahira Khan who played the lead in Verna, spoke of the sexual harassment incidents that have been occurring all across the world.
Actor Nadia Jamil, who is known for speaking up on sensitive issues, mentioned that Ali has always been respectful towards her, however, she also wrote that this was “not about her”.
Punjab Nahi Jaungi actor, Urwa Hocane retweeted Meesha’s story.
However, Maya Ali who will be seen opposite Ali in the upcoming film, Teefa in Trouble spoke about her time while the two shot in Poland for the film. “I always found him talking to his wife and kids. He would share his good and bad moments with his family. I am not judging anyone nor giving any clarification on anyone’s behalf. I respect Ali and want the truth to come out.”
Actor Osman Khalid Butt who is also a close friend of Maya, took to Twitter to address the situation as well. Countless Twitter users have been accusing Meesha of sharing her “fake” story only to gain publicity. Osman spoke how whenever a woman comes forward with her horrible stories of sexual abuse but then the internet makes fun of her by making insensitive jokes.
Model Eman Suleman also stood in solidarity with Meesha.
Maya Khan also gave her two cents on the matter.
Moreover, Waqar Zaka also took to Twitter and shared that he thinks Meesha’s story was just a publicity stunt.
