Anu Malik to return as Indian Idol judge


After actor Aamir Khan had a change of heart about director Subhash Kapoor, Sony TV seems to have had a similar reaction to Anu Malik.

The music composer is reportedly set to return as a judge on Indian Idol, months after he was announced as having been removed following allegations of sexual harassment.

Anu had been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct, including against a minor. Last year during the #MeToo movement, singers Shweta Pandit and Sona Mohapatra had accused Malik of sexual harassment, reports Hindustan Times.

Shweta had said in her post that she was just 15 when Malik made her uncomfortable by asking her to kiss him.

On Monday, BollywoodLife reported that Anu will soon make a comeback on Indian Idol, a show that he has been a part of since 2004. He will be seen as a judge along with Vishal Dadlani and Neha Kakkar.

Anu had denied the allegations and his lawyer told the media, “India’s #MeToo movement” is being used for his client’s “character assassination”.
