Anu Malik offers to resign as reality show judge: channel sources

MUMBAI: Music composer Anu Malik, who has been accused of sexual harassment by several women, including singers Sona Mohapatra, Neha Bhasin and Shweta Pandit, has offered to step down as a judge of a reality show on Sony TV, channel sources said on Thursday.

“He conveyed to the channel today that he wants to step down till he clears his name,” a Sony Entertainment Television insider told reporters.

However, it is uncertain whether the channel accepted his resignation.

Malik remained unavailable for comment.

The development comes a week after the music director denied the allegations, saying he was being “cornered” for something he did not do and may take legal action. (AGENCIES)
