The #MeToo movement had reached its height in Bollywood last year, as several B-town actresses and singers accused big names from the industry of sexual misconduct. Singer Sona Mohapatra had outed music-composer Anu Malik. Apart from Sona several other singers too had accused Malik of sexual harassment.

Malik, who maintained silence on all these accusations, has finally broken his silence in a lengthy note and has clearly stated that all the allegations levelled against him are false and unverified.

On Thursday, Anu Malik took to his Instagram handle and shared a note on how the false accusations has tarnished his image and are affecting his livelihood.

He also said that his silence has been mistaken by many as his weakness. Malik asked why these allegations surface online whenever he is about to bag a project. Malik said that his only source of livelihood is doing TV shows and being a father of two girls he can’t even imagine doing what he has been accused of.

Take a look at his long post right here.

As his post went viral last night, signer Sona took to her Instagram handle and she yet again slammed Malik for blatantly lying. As Malik has refuted the accusations, Sona pointed out the names of several singers Shweta Pandit, Danica D’Souza (Ex Indian Idol Producer), Caralisa Monteiro, Alisha Chinai who had spoken about being harassed by Malik.

Sona went on to ask Anu to step down from Indian Idol and apologize. She concluded saying, “Step Down Malik & yes, please do go to court. I request you to do so. Not just these 10 testimonies, we shall ensure ten times those are presented for the world to see. Let’s set a precedent for India, Mr Anu Malik. Let’s make sure no one feels like behaving like you have over the decades. I have the utmost faith that.”

Mr Anu Malik, 1) The only ‘truths’ that have surfaced after I called you out last year is that many more women have told their stories of sexual harassment, assault experiences with you. @shwetapandit7 told of her trauma of how you scarred her at a young age of 15. Danica D’Souza, Ex Indian Idol Producer told of how you harassed crew & contestants alike. Caralisa Monteiro spoke up too. Neha Bhasin spoke up a fortnight ago about her own story with you & many more who aren’t known did too & in detail. Alisha Chinai corroborated the pattern & spoke her truth too. None of these women are connected or have anything to gain by speaking up about the predatory behaviour of one powerful, rich, perverted man. 2) ‘unverified’ allegations you say? These are multiple testimonies of independent sane women speaking coherently & they have a common story. What about the ‘mental health’ of all these people who have gone through this traumatic experience because of you? Did you care about them over these years? What about the mental health of the good India & all the victims & their families when they see you flaunting yourself on TV & Encouraging others like you? 3. You have no right to be platformed on National TV till you make amends. 1.3 billion people exist in India. Not everyone needs to make crores on TV to survive or be ‘judge’ to young people whose safety they jeopardise. You aren’t a role model. You could always take a break, go to a sex-rehab or counselling or somewhere to reflect on how to behave better. Ask your kids to do a hard days job & earn a salary. They are adults now. I started working at 22.Open a biriyani shop. Stay away from the public eye? Show remorse? Say sorry? If you did, this would not have happened. There you go! You answered your own Q. Show off shamelessly on TV & we be quiet? 4. Having two daughters has no link to being a predator. 5. Yes, the show must go on. Without you. Don’t jeopardise the hard work of so many & the dreams of so many contestants just for you. STEP DOWN 6. Yes, go to court. Not just 10, 10 times those will come forward as testimonies & we shall set a precedence for sexual harassment cases in India. Justice 🤟🏾🔴
