Anu Malik reveals the reason behind his exit from Indian Idol

We already know that singer Sona Mohapatra released an open letter on social media against popular music composer Anu Malik and accused him of sexual harassment. Singer Neha Bhasin also made the same sexual misconduct allegations against him in the past.

Anu Malik backed out of the popular music show Indian Idol. This is not the first time that he stepped down from the show as Anu Malik did the same last year as well after #MeToo allegations against him. Anu Malik while talking to the media has revealed that he took this decision voluntarily and he is going to take a 3-week break from the show and will definitely come back after clearing his name. "The channel has been very supportive and it is solely my decision to take this break," said Anu Malik and added that before jumping into the conclusions it's important for the people to hear the other side as well.
He added that he has already written a letter to the Music Composers Associations Of India (MCAI) revealing his stand on this issue and also requested them to forward the letter to Singers Association of India (SAI) asking them to explain themselves.
