Anu Malik Not Part Of Indian Idol After #MeToo Accusations 

Indian Idol 10 judge Anu Malik is no longer part of the renewed reality show after being called out by four men in MeToo accusations for sexual misbehaviour.  Anu Malik was one of the judges along with Neha Kkar and musician Vishal Dadlani. A few days ago, singer Shweta Pandit accused Malik of sexual harassment when she was 15.

“If this is true, then I applaud Sony TV and the makers of Indian Idol to support Me too. India needs a change in their mindset and respect work ethics and women at work. Don’t Engage and supporting survivors is the beginning of these changes. We have a lot more to do,” said Shweta Pandit.

Anu Malik Quits Indian Idol

“Anu Malik is no longer a part of Indian Idol jury panel. The show will continue its planned schedule & we’ll invite some of the biggest names in Indian music as guests to join Vishal&Neha to judge the extraordinary talent of Indian Idol season 10,” Sony Entertainment Television issued a  statement.

” “I remember I sang the title song of Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega as a voice test for this man (Anu Malik). I sang it well so he said, “I’ll give you this song with Sunidhi and Shaan but first give me a kiss now” He then smiled, what id recall the most evil grin I’ve seen. I went numb and pale in the face. I was only 15years old then, still in school,” Shweta posted on Twitter calling out Anu Malik.
