After Shweta Pandit and Sona Mohapatra's accusations of sexual harassment against Anu Malik, two other women survivors have recently exposed the composer for his misdeeds. "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", a statement released by Sony Entertainment Television on Sunday read. She added that Malik had been preying on girls his daughters' age for a long time. Revealing about meeting Anu Malik at his home alone, the first survivor said that the composer lifted her skirt and dropped his trousers. Lyricist Sameer Anjaan also defended him and tweeted that no such incident took place. "I told him no and urged him to let me go, but he pulled me by my hair and stuffed my face in his lap, hurling abuses as he did so", she said.

Shweta wrote that it had taken her a lot for her 'to open up this wound again and speak up against this pedophile and sexual predator.' She wrote, "I used to admire his music and practice his songs for hours and look upto him back then! She was startled. The cameraman who was sitting in the front seat wasn't aware of what was going on behind him". Actors Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor and filmmaker Vikas Bahl have also been outed as alleged predators.
