Anu Malik accused – The harassment story
Sheets tweeted, his manager called her up and asked her to come in empire studio in mid-2001.
Certainly, she was thrilled as she was an admirer of the composer.
He asked her to sing a few lines as a voice test.
She says, “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 evilest grin I’ve seen. I went numb and pale in the face. I was only 15 years old then, still in school.”
“Can anyone even imagine what it felt that moment? It felt like someone had just stabbed me in my stomach. I referred to this man as ‘Anu uncle’ he knew my entire family for decades and knew us as a respected gharana of musicians…,” Shweta added.
She called it her “worst experience of life” and was depressed for months after this incident.
In response to this, Soha tweeted “Sending you love, big healing and strength @ShwetaPandit7. That #AnuMalik did this to you as a child is something #India has to make note of. Thank you so much for being brave and bringing this out in the open. I know how difficult that is and the pressure to let ‘bygones be bygones’.”
“That so many people trolled me for my #AnuMalik #TimesUp story scoffing because they think calling me ‘Maal’ or calling up at odd hours doesn’t constitute as sexual harassment. Please note, you don’t know Sh*t. Predators do so much worse when they get a chance because of people like you,” she tweeted.
While, when questioned about the same to Malik he said, ” No comments. This is ridiculous. I don’t want to talk about it. Today anyone says anything.”
