While Alisha has not revealed whether she is a victim or not, she has come in to support the women who have spoken against Malik. Talking to Deccan Chronicle about the allegations against the music composer, Alisha said, “Every word said and written about Anu Malik is true. I stand by all the women who have finally spoken up. May they find peace and closure in their lives.”
Owing to the allegations against him, Sony Entertainment Television decided to drop Malik as the judge of Indian Idol season 10. The statement from the channel said, "Anu Mallik is no longer a part of the Indian Idol jury panel. The show will continue its planned schedule and we will invite some of the biggest names in Indian music as guests to join Vishal and Neha to judge the extraordinary talent of Indian Idol season 10.”
The #MeToo movement has become a rage in India thanks to Tanushree Dutta. The actress began the campaign after she opened up about being sexually harassed by Nana Patekar on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss and her statements gave many other women courage to speak up about misconduct they faced by the men in the industry.
