The year 2018 saw a positive wave in the name of #MeToo movement in India where many women came forward and shared their sexual assault stories with the world. This particular movement was an eye-opener to many as it unmasked prominent names in Bollywood who sexually abused women. The torch bearer of the same was Tanushree Dutta who accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her. Then started the storm and it was last year when singers Shweta Pandit and Sona Mohapatra had accused the Indian Idol 11 judge, Anu Malik of sexual harassment. Well, that did not stop there, as later two other budding singers also levelled similar allegations against Malik. However, Malik had earlier called these allegations, 'baseless and false.'

Also, it was very recently, when singer Neha Bhasin and Soha Mohapatra also called out the makers of Indian Idol 11
for having a #MeTooa accused as the judge of the singing reality show. Amidst all this, Malik in his latest Instagram post has broken his silence and have tagged the allegations as 'unverified'. The singer's statement says that he will no more keep mum and also go the legal way if things turn ugly further. 'Being a father of two daughters, I can't imagine committing the acts that I am accused of, let alone do it," a part of his statement reads. #MeToo Allegations Against Anu Malik Refuse to Stop; 2 More Women Share SHOCKING Details of The Singer's Sexual Misconduct.
