A letter from the National Commission Of Women has persuaded Sony Entertainment to relieve Anu Malik of his services as a judge on Indian Idol. The music composer had returned to the show despite a hue and cry over MeToo accusations. But now, it seems Malik has been permanently sacked from the job that many felt he was unsuitable for. Sources say several of Anu Malik’s staunchly supportive producers including Yash Raj Film and Sajid Nadiadwala have taken a stand in favour of not employing Malik’s services.

This leaves the once-popular composer virtually unemployed. A source from a   major production house which has worked extensively with Anu Malik in the past says,  “It’s not about whether we believe in his guilt or not. The time is not right for employing the services of any MeToo accused, especially someone who has a number of women pointing fingers at him. We won’t work with Anu in spite of our impressive success ratio in the past.” Tanushree Dutta who initiated the MeToo movement in  Bollywood feels the movement is entering a  new phase.

 

“The #metoo movement just started its second wave and let’s not jump to conclusions (about its decline) too early. No ones getting away in the long run and that much I can assure you. All must account for their actions.”. When we reached  out to Anu Malik, he  refused to comment.
