In the wake of the #MeToo movement, two more women have accused music composer Anu Malik of sexual harassment after singers Sona Mohapatra and Shweta Pandit. However, Anu Malik has denied knowing Sona and called Shweta’s allegations ridiculous and baseless. The two new accounts are from unnamed women. One of the women gave an account of Malik’s behaviour during a meeting at his residence where he lifted her skirt and dropped his pants and later molested her at a deserted place. Another survivor revealed that she had a meeting with Malik in a studio where he tried to forcefully hug her and also asked her to wear chiffon saree in their next meeting.
“Had to go back to my worst memory as a teenage girl today to write this and speak up - its now or never. This is my #MeToo and have to warn young girls about #AnuMalik & let you know your #TimesUp @IndiaMeToo. Thank you @sonamohapatra for speaking up about him & supporting this,” Shweta wrote on Twitter.
Earlier, in an Instagram post, singer Sona Mahapatra wrote, “To all the young girls & women who are coming out with their experiences with this creep, journalists, ‘fans’ & even kids from college, know that you are not alone. This guy, #KailashKher is a serial predator & has been for years as are many others like Anu Malik in the industry. I cannot be tweeting about everyone cus I work 18 hour work days & have a life to live & breathe in.”
