Anu Malik Indian Idol 10 me too

Indian Idol 10 judge Anu Malik has taken a break from the show

She said once they had wrapped up their work, Malik touched her thigh in the vehicle, and felt her up.

"Anu Malik is no longer a part of Indian Idol jury panel. The show will continue its planned schedule and we will invite some of the biggest names in Indian music as guests to join Vishal Dadlani and Neha Kakkar to judge the extraordinary talent of Indian Idol season 10". She isn't the first one to have named and shamed Anu.

Bollywood composer and singer Anu Malik has been removed from the television reality show Indian Idol as its judge. She even registered her complaint in Oshiwara police station but no action was taken yet.

On Wednesday, Shweta had had taken to Twitter to narrate her own MeToo experience stating how Malik allegedly asked for a "kiss" in exchange of offering her a song in his film in 2000.

"Anu Malik is no longer a part of the Indian Idol jury panel".

Mr. Malik also confirmed his exit from the show. Posting the screenshots of her story, Shweta wrote, "Had to go back to my worst memory as a teenage girl today to write this and speak up - its now or never".

A day after singer Shweta Pandit accused Anu Malik of sexually harassing her at the age of 15, lyricist Sameer Anjan has come out in support of the music composer saying that nothing that Pandit claims has ever happened. "This is my #MeToo and have to warn young girls about #AnuMalik & let you know your #TimesUp @IndiaMeToo Thank you @sonamohapatra for speaking up about him & supporting this". Anu Malik denied those allegations against him but as per the reports, he had already paid a heavy toll for it. When complained about it to higher authorities, everyone just told to remain careful around him and turned a blind eye.

Anu Malik told her that he wanted Sameer also to hear her voice. Once, at a meeting in Sahara Studios, Gurugram, he asked the survivor to wear a "chiffon sari" the next time she met him.

Danica is now in NY and spoke to Mid-Day where she said, "This incident occurred in Kolkata". Anu Malik is yet to respond to these new allegations.
