Malik also shared a statement “I, Anu Malik, have decided to take a break from Indian Idol as I am currently unable to focus on my work on the show. The channel has been kind to agree for the same. Thank you.”
After singers Sona Mohapatra and Shweta Pandit accused Anu Malik of sexual harassment, two budding singers levelled similar allegations against him.
A lawyer for the music director has denied the claims against him, saying India’s #MeToo movement is being used for his client’s “character assassination”. Malik has repeatedly denied the allegations.
