Ali Zafar had said in the notice that Shafi had caused "tremendous injury" to his "reputation, goodwill, livelihood" through "false, slanderous and defamatory" allegations, according to Geo News. The suit read: "As the defamatory statements are patently false, it can only be concluded that this malicious campaign has been launched against the plaintiff as part of a motivated conspiracy to tarnish the plaintiff's good image through making false accusations.

On 23 June 2018 Court also issued “a permanent stay against Meesha Shafi until the final decision of the case,” in Ali Zafar’s favour.

In their testimony, witnesses Aqsa Ali and Kanza Muneer said they were "shocked" at Shafi's allegations and thought they were "obligated to speak up as women". Kanza Muneer said in her statement that during the rehearsal, at which 11 people were present and videos were made, Zafar and Shafi maintained five to six feet distance from each other. She said that Shafi left after saying bye and claimed that her allegations of harassment were false. On October 11 2019 Lahore High Court dismissed Meesha Shafi’s appeal and Ali Zafar won the case against him. In his statement he said “I will prove Meesha Shafi lied”. In his testimony in court Ali Zafar said that he supports the #MeToo movement, which is aimed to end sexual harassment and abuse, but it had been "misused against him". Zafar claimed that it was actually Shafi’s lawyer, a renowned women’s rights activist who was the master mind behind the conspiracy. “Meesha Shafi’s claim in her court testimony that the other women who came forward are unrelated is a complete lie. Our findings exposed that they were deeply interlinked much before the allegations. The common link seems to be Nighat Dad. They were all either working with or for her.” Ali Zafar said in his testimony while presenting evidence.
