Ali Zafar Songs Lyrics


“Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day”

“With Faith And Right Intentions You Can Achieve All Dreams”


Ali Zafar, a singer, and actor from Pakistan, became very upset on live television when he denied accusations of sexual harassment made by singer Meesha Shafi. Zafar said the accusations were not true and blamed Shafi for hurting his career through social media. He talked about a sad incident involving a singer from Mexico named Armando Vega Gil and asked Shafi to stop the issue. Shafi accused Zafar in 2018 during the #MeToo movement, which led to a legal fight. Zafar sued Shafi for 100 crores for defamation, but the court said no. Zafar then asked the Federal Investigation Agency to take legal action and told Shafi to go to court.
