Singer Neha Bhasin Calls Anu Malik A “Predator” & Alleges Misconduct

Anu Malik who is currently seen as a judge in the eleventh season of the popular singing reality show, Indian Idol is back in headlines. A year after, singers Sona Mohapatra and Shweta Pandit accused the music composer of sexual misconduct, he was reinstated as a judge on the show.

This did not go down well with the singers and they have once again come forward to express their disappointment on the issue. Amidst the controversy, singer Neha Bhasin recently came forward and bashed Malik for misconduct that made her uncomfortable as a 21-year-old.

The singer in a series of tweets revealed that Malik had laid on a couch in front of her talking about her eyes and made her uncomfortable.

Shweta Pandit, who had accused Malik of sexually harassing her when she was 15-year-old too came forward to clear the air on why she did not raise her voice against Malik as a teenager.

“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 didn’t 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,” she wrote.

Last year, Shweta, in a series of tweets spilled the details about the incident where Malik allegedly asked her for a kiss.

Earlier, Anu Malik’s lawyer had denied all the claims and told HT, “The allegations made against my client are emphatically denied as completely false and baseless. My client respects the #metoo movement but to use this movement to start a character assassination mission is obnoxious.”

No new comments on the matter have, however, been given from Malik’s side. Let’s wait and watch if things intensify after Bhasin and Shweta’s statements against him.
