The Lahore High Court announced today that the Rs 2 billion lawsuit singer and actress Meesha Shafi has filed against Ali Zafar shall continue to proceed in court. Previously, the sessions court had stayed the proceedings and Shafi’s lawyers had filed an appeal in High Court.

Meesha Shafi had previously rejected claims that she was trying to compromise or settle her case with Ali Zafar. In an interview with news reporters outside the Lahore sessions court, the singer said the reports were false:

“I have just faced cross examination in court. These reports are completely baseless.”
