Indian Idol 11 judge Anu Malik has been in the eye of a storm ever since multiple women accused him of sexual harassment in the #MeToo movement. This year, he was reinstated as the judge on the popular music reality show despite objections on social media. A week ago, Sona Mohapatra slammed the channel and makers for giving work to Anu Malik despite the spate of allegations against him. Singer Neha Bhasin narrated her ordeal with him stating how his gaze made her very uncomfortable. A series of tweets were exchanged between Sona and Neha Bhasin. Shweta Pandit wrote on Twitter, "Asking for proof inspite of so many women and singers speaking up against the same pervert? Any damn guy who ever asked any of us for proof, after a person has been called out as a repeat offender by so many, should know they are molesters in the making! Full of hypocrites around. Even in 2019, we are being questioned as victims, after myself being a professional singer in this industry for 2 decades-some narrow minds-why we didnt speak then?Really losers? Imagine what would happen off me if i did speak in 2001 when i was a school kid? Thank God for #MeToo."
Hema Sardesai who has sung some hit numbers recently defended Anu Malik. She said it was a selfless post with no gains in mind.
Many people are shocked that Hema Sardesai has come out in support of Anu Malik but the singer maintains her stand.
