As women are telling their sexual harassment stories all around India, the #MeToo movement has brought many shocking stories in the limelight. The movement has reached the Indian film industry where many names have been named and shamed. Just recently, singer Shweta Pandit called out music composer Anu Malik for asking her for a kiss when she was merely 15 years old. Describing the incident on Twitter, Shweta wrote, “He was recording a group song with Sunidhi and Shaan for the film ‘Awara Pagal Deewana’, when my mother and I walked in the monitor room. He told me to wait in the small cabin inside where singers sang at Empire studio. It was just him and me there. I sang it well so he said, ‘I’ll give you this song with Sunidhi and Shaan but first give me a kiss now’. He then smiled, what I’d recall the most evil grin I’ve seen. I went numb and pale in the face. I was only 15 years old then, still in school”.
Anu Malik’s legal representative has released his statement and denied all the allegations. The statement reads, “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.”
