n the wake of #MeToo movement in India, Neha revealed that Anu made her uncomfortable during their meeting many years ago.
Mumbai: Bollywood singer Neha Bhasin has recently revealed about her uncomfortable incident happened with music composer Anu Malik. In the wake of #MeToo movement in India, Neha revealed that Anu made her uncomfortable during their meeting many years ago and agreed to singer Sona Mohapatra’s opinion that he’s a predator.
Replying to Sona’s string of tweets criticising the composer and Sony TV for hiring him back as the judge of Indian Idol after sacking him from the post of judge of the show. Neha wrote, “I agee with you. We do live in a very sexist world. Anu Malik is a predetor, i too have run away from his strange moves when i was 21. I didn’t let myself get into a sticky situation beyond him lying on a sofa in front of me talking about my eyes in a studio. I fleed lying”
“my mums waiting below. He even msgd and called me after that to which i stopped responding. The point is i went to give him my cd and hope for a chance at a song. He was older and shouldnt have behaved the way he did. @The_AnuMalik is an ugly pervert and does not,” she added.
“Even though i have a brave DNA Sona 🙂 as you have known me the industry or the world was not an easy place as a young girl alone away from family due to many such Incidents or getting a hunch of such perverts. Perverts exist inside n outside our industry but why are we so”.
“(2) so forgiving to the men, do we realise that is what gives them the strength to ruin our dignity, hide us women in our houses. I hid many times so as to not get myself in a sticky situation. Why is it ok? For a man who is predetor to walk free while we hide in shame n fear?”
“Last thing i wanna say is 19 to age 30 many older men tried to make their cheap advances oh ne rest assured i complained to the people i thought would bring justice. The Tv world says a womans role is of Ma, bhabhi aur behen oh yes i was told that too. So what is A man’s role?” she wrote.
Meanwhile, last year, Anu was removed from Indian Idol after being accused of sexual misconduct. Now, he’s again back on the show’s 11th season.
