#MeToo: After being accused of sexual misconduct, Anu Malik to be back on TV?
Last year, the #MeToo wave hit Indian shores and we saw several big wigs’ name appear on the alleged offender’s list. One such name was of composer-singer Anu Malik. He was accused of sexual misconduct by top-notch singers like Shweta Pandit, Sona Mohapatra and Alisha Chinai.
After Malik was outed by a few more women, the makers of ‘Indian Idol’ dropped him as one of the judges on the show. Post that, the singer-composer kept a low profile and it was reported that he might return as one of the judges on ‘Indian Idol’. However, the latest reports suggest otherwise.
As per a report in Times of India, Malik might not return as a judge but he will be making an appearance on a singing reality show ‘Superstar Singer’. A source close to the development was quoted saying as, “He will make an appearance along with lyricist Sameer in an episode dedicated to the songs composed and written by them.”
‘Superstar Singer’ is currently judged by Himesh Reshammiya, Alka Yagnik and Javed Ali. However, there has been no official confirmation regarding Anu being a part of one of the upcoming episodes of ‘Superstar Singer’. We wonder how the women who had accused Malik of sexual harassment will react to this piece of news now.
