Hemaa Sardesai has come out in support of #MeToo accused Anu Malik.

The news of #MeToo accused Anu Malik being reinstated as the judge of Indian Idol 11 did not go down well with people. Singers like Sona Mohapatra and Neha Bhasin took to social media to protest against the decision.

Now Hemaa Sardesai, known for songs such as Aawara Bhawren, Chali Chali Phir Hawa Chali and Badal Pe Paon Hai, and who has also worked with Anu Malik, has come out in support of him. She took to Instagram to say that Anu Malik has a huge “respect for true talent.”

Hemaa begins by praising Anu Malik and saying that he is a music director who has given platforms to many singers, one of them being Hemaa herself. She wrote, “So many years ago when my struggle carried on in the industry I was the ONLY singer who had stated publicly that I have refused to compromise my values for songs. Why were all others quiet then? And why have they been quiet for so many years? By sheer grace despite my strong principles, I was blessed with many blockbuster hit songs including those directed by Anu Malik. If one of the decent most Singers like me could have sung some of Anu Malik’s greatest songs, it proves there is an great artiste in him who respected true talent and who respectfully gave me songs on merit alone.”

Recently, Neha Bhasin took to Twitter to talk about her personal experience with singer and music producer Anu Malik. She even called him a “predator.”

She even questioned those singers calling him out and said, “why were you quiet for so many years? Are you’ll trying to say all the other Music directors who you'll worked with were Gods?. like seriously? Also if for publicity sake youll are throwing stones at him, its not acceptable.I ask those known singers who got most of his big songs why are you'll quiet today when you shld be standing by him? I mean it takes two hands to clap rite? When one of the most RAREST DECENT MOST Singer of the industry says something on this.. the people concerned shld sit up and take heed pls..”

Recently, Neha Bhasin took to Twitter to talk about her personal experience with singer and music producer Anu Malik. Calling him a “predator”, Neha Bhasin’s accusations against the Indian Idol judge were in response to a tweet by singer and TV show judge Sona Mohapatra, in which the latter talks about how her actions resulted in her losing her place as a judge on an Indian reality show. Whereas Anu Mallik, who Mohapatra had accused of alleged sexual misconduct, did not face repercussions.
