In the #MeToo movement which started to spread over the media industry of India in the late of 2018, singers Shweta Pandit and Sona Mohapatra have accused director Anu Malik of sexually assaulting them. Shweta Pandit stated she was still underage when she was harassed. Pandit shared that she had gone pale and numb in her face and at that time, she was only fifteen and hadn’t left school yet. The singer also shared that she called him “Anu uncle” and he was an acquaintance with her family for many years.

However, Anu denied the accusation of Pandit.

Amaal Malik also shared in an interview that he was a close friend with Sona Mohapatra and he knew Sona must have had a reason to speak up about Malik. He also said that they should take legal actions if there were a reason.

As for his career, Amaal will be one of the judges in Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs’ newest season. Meanwhile, his uncle Anu was removed from the judge position of Indian Idol because of the allegations against him. An official statement was made from the show that he no longer belonged to the jury panel of Indian Idol, and the show would continue the original schedule as planned. They will also invite the most famous celebrities to be the individual judges, together with Neha and Vishal, to evaluate and give comments on the extraordinary talents that will appear in the 10th season of the show.
