After #Metoo allegations Anu Malik no longer part of ‘Indian Idol’

Anu Malik Indian Idol 10 me too

Indian composer Anu Malik has been removed as Indian Idol judge following multiple allegations of sexual harassment.

In a post, she wrote that the composer, whom she used to call "Anu Uncle" promised her a song with Sunidhi and Shaan, but asked her for a kiss.

This comes after singer Shweta Pandit accused Anu Malik of sexually harassing her when she was 15. She told a daily, "Every word said and written about Anu Malik is true".

The decision comes after singers Sona Mohapatra and Shweta Pandit accused Malik of sexual harassment. "Producers and filmmakers like Sajid Nadiadwala, Sajid Khan, J. P. Dutta, Gulzar and Rakeysh Mehra continued to work repeatedly with Malik, in spite of his reputation".

Strangely Anu Malik has been trying his dirty tricks on unsuspecting girls for years without his wife being any the wiser. Lyricist Sameer Anjaan also defended him and tweeted that no such incident took place.

According to media reports, the decision came after the television network asked Malik to back down from the show.

"The allegations made against my client are emphatically denied as completely false and baseless". In a statement, the music director, who has been attached with the show as a judge since 2004, said he had chose to step away from it as he was not able to "focus on my work". In the wake of the #MeToo movement, no victim/ survivor wants to keep quiet but wants to raise her voice against their harassers and see them get punished. "I don't know why they are still quiet", she told mid-day, adding that she hopes the channel and production house take a stand against Anu Malik. She went to meet him at his residence with her friend. "They are well aware of his behaviour with women".

Ever since the #MeToo movement kicked up a storm in Bollywood, many celebrities have come forward to name and shame some of the big guns of the industry.

Well known stars like Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor and movie maker Vikas Bahl have also been booted out as alleged predators.
