The nasty after-shocks of the MeToo movement can be felt right across the entertainment industry. The latest accused to feel the heat is Anu Malik who has been swiftly sacked from his duties as a judge on Sony Entertainment’s Indian Idol.
Malik has been a judge on the show right from its inception. Sources at Sony say the tainted composer was “absolutely sure” of his position on Indian Idol.
“There is no Indian Idol without Anu Malik,” he bragged among his colleagues.
The movers and shakers at Sony acted swiftly in cutting the egoistic offender to size.
With Anu out of Indian Idol he has nothing to fall back on to keep his career going. His songs were recently used by director Sharat Kataria in Sui Dhaga. But it’s unlikely that big banners or even small banners will come to him with offers any longer.
