These singers have been accused in the #MeeToo movement

MUMBAI: #MeToo has taken our country by storm, a movement, which widely stands against sexual harassment, where one can report/stand and freely talk on the sexual assault/misconduct they have faced.

While many big names like Sajid Khan, Vinod Dua, Nana Patekar and many more names from the Bollywood industry and elsewhere have popped up, we have our Indian music Industry that didn’t go unnoticed. Renowned singers like Kailash Kher, Anu Malik, Abhijeet Bhattacharya and a few more have been accused in this movement.

Check out the list below to know accusations on these singers:

Anu Malik

Sona Mohapatra, Shweta Pandit and two others had accused Anu Malik of sexual harassment (according to a Midday report).

On social media earlier Shweta Pandit had posted on her Instagram, which said that when she was just 15, Anu Malik had made her felt uneasy by asking her to kiss him. Check the post below

Kailash Kher and Toshi

To all the young girls & women who are coming out with their experiences with this creep, journalists, ‘fans’ & even kids from college, know that you are not alone. This guy, #KailashKher is a serial predator & has been for years as are many others like Anu Malik in the industry. I cannot be tweeting about everyone cus I work 18 hour work days & have a life to live & breathe in. Also I cannot comment on many others basis heresay. That would be unfair. (Many journalists have been asking me for stories thinking that I’m most likely to ‘spill the beans’. I’m not) It is important that we stick to facts & our personal experiences to make this a serious & credible movement to help clean a system & lopsided power structure. It is just a start but an important one. #TimesUp #India #Change
