It's been an ongoing debate since 2007, but Meera has now firmly denied all news of her intention to contest the 2018 elections.

"I'm tired of these false news, I'm extremely tired of them," she told Images while in Dubai.

"I had a meeting with Manish Malhotra in Dubai for the fashion show and my dress, and it's with a lot of sadness I have say that in Pakistan gandi khabrein are published about me, and [especially] when I'm not in Pakistan. These false news are published with my name on them."

Just so people were clear and had no more misconceptions, Meera tweeted her denial of the rumours and asked media houses to take down the news:

In 2007, Meera disclosed her decision to join politics and said she had offers from almost all major political parties to join. She said she was seriously considering joining a political party, though she did not disclose the name of any particular party she wished to join.
