Anu Malik to return as a judge on Indian Idol?
By Bandook - May 30, 2019
If you go by current reports, after “being fired” over #MeToo allegations last year, Anu Malik is all set to return as a judge on Indian Idol 11.
After quitting as the judge for the tenth season of the singing reality show Indian Idol following the allegation of sexual abuse against him by multiple women, music composer Anu Malik has reportedly been roped in for the eleventh season as well. Sources say talks between him and Sony TV are on.
He was earlier accused by singers Shweta Pandit and Sona Mohapatra of sexual harassment which was then followed by accusations by two other singers, post which Sony TV had announced that the composer would step down from his position as the judge of the show.
Though on his part, Anu had denied all the charges, his lawyer had said, “India’s #MeToo movement is being used for my client’s character assassination”.>
