#MeToo: Anu Malik takes break from ‘Indian Idol’ amid sexual harassment allegations

"I, Anu Malik, have made a decision to take a break from Indian Idol as I am now unable to focus on my work, my music and the show", he asserted. She talked about the incident in detail in a Twitter post and called Malik a pedophile. She told a daily, "Every word said and written about Anu Malik is true".

However, Anu Malik has denied the allegations that he sexually harassed Shweta Pandit.

Noted lyricist Sameer Anjaan also came to Malik's defence and tweeted that he was present during the time Pandit is talking about but no such incident took place.

Now according to the latest developments, Malik has exclusively given out a statement to Pinkvilla saying that he is taking a break from the show. I sang it well so he said, "ill 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 ive seen. "My client respects the #MeToo movement, but to use this movement to start a character assassination mission is obnoxious". As per PinkVilla, Danica D'Souza, who is now in NY, has narrated the ordeal exposing dirty side of Anu Malik.

Overall, the night belonged to another young Suns star, Devin Booker , who scored 35 while hitting six-of-10 3-pointers. Warren 17 for the Suns, who gave Kokoskov a victory in his National Basketball Association head coaching debut.

Danica is now in NY and spoke to Mid-Day where she said, "This incident occurred in Kolkata". One of our colleagues from the production crew was travelling with a cameraman and Malik in a vehicle to get sound bites. Anu Malik said no to all the claims and termed them as baseless and afterwards, renowned lyricist Sameer Anjaan came to save Anu Malik. "She was startled. The cameraman who was sitting in the front seat wasn't aware of what was going on behind him". A female singer who refuses to sing for Malik says, "I don't know whether his sweet wife Anju is blind to her husband's predatory ways or she's just ignoring them, Chances are, she is only pretending not to know".

In the wake of India's #MeToo movement, many renowned faces have been accused of harassment, sexual misconduct, and even rape.

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