New Delhi:

Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar has rubbished the sexual harassment allegations against him by Pakistani singer Meesha Shafi and said that truth will prevail.

He even asserted that silence is not an option for him and he intends to take this through the courts of law.

Ali's reaction came after Meesha Shafi accused him of sexual harassment as a part of the Me Too campaign on social media.

She said that she had been subjected to sexual harassment "of a physical nature at the hands of a colleague" on more than one occasion.

The Dear Zindagi actor took it to micro-blogging site Twitter to deny all the allegations.

"I categorically deny all and any claims of harassment lodged against me by Ms Shafi. I intend to take this through the courts of law and to address this professionally and seriously rather than to lodge any allegations here, contesting personal vendettas on social media and in turn disrespecting the movement, my family, the industry and my fans".

Zafar also said that while he is a strong believer in truth, he believes the truth will prevail over everything.

He also said that he is deeply aware and in support of the global #MeeToo movement and what it stands for.

"I am the father of a young girl and a young boy, a husband to a wife and a son to a mother. I am a man that has stood up for myself, my family, my colleagues and friends countless times in the face of slander, defamation and general unkindness. I will do the same today. I have nothing to hide. Silence is absolutely not an option," Zafar added. 

Apparently, this is the first time that a Pakistani celebrity has come forward with sexual harassment allegation amidst the 'Me Too' hashtag movement.
