Singer-composer Anu Malik, who was removed from the jury panel of "Indian Idol" last year following accusations of sexual misconduct in the wake of the #MeToo movement, returns to the small screen as a guest judge on the children's reality music show, "Superstar Singer". When IANS contacted Anu, he was busy in a recording studio. Lyricist Sameer Anjaan, who will be accompanying Anu on the show, however, confirmed the news. "I will be a guest judge on Sony TV's (channel) 'Superstar Singer' and Anu Malik will join me on the show. You will enjoy a lot. You will get to hear songs by Anu and me ," Sameer told IANS.
In October 2018, Anu Malik was accused by two female singers, who called him a "paedophile" and a "sexual predator". He has denied the allegations. Sameer had earlier extended support towards the composer on social media, saying: "This is really shocking and sad that today people can pass any comment without proof." Earlier this year, there was a buzz about Anu's return as judge to the reality music show "Indian Idol".
After a few #MeToo claims heaped facing Anu Malik, he ventured down from his post as judge and issued this announcement, "I, Anu Malik, have chosen to take a break from Indian Idol as I am at present incapable to concentrate on my work, my music and the show." moreover, Sony TV, which pretense the show, stated, "Anu Malik is never again a piece of Indian Idol jury board. The show will proceed with its arranged timetable and we'll welcome probably the greatest names in Indian music as visitors to join Vishal and Neha to pass judgment on uncommon ability of Indian Idol Season 10."
