Neha Bhasin calls Anu Malik a 'predator' and 'ugly pervert'
Mumbai: 'Nai Jaana' fame singer Neha Bhasin has acccused music composer Anu Malik of predatory behaviour, and called him an "ugly pervert".
Neha took to social media recently and posted a series of tweets, calling out Anu for making her uncomfortable several times.
"We do live in a very sexist world. Anu Malik is a predator, I too have run away from his strange moves when I was 21. I didn't let myself get into a sticky situation beyond him lying on a sofa in front of me talking about my eyes in a studio," she tweeted.
"I fleed lying my mum is waiting below. He even messaged and called me after that to which I stopped responding. The point is I went to give him my cd and hope for a chance at a song. He was older and shouldnt have behaved the way he did. Anu Malik is an ugly pervert," added Neha.
Last year, Anu Malik was removed from the jury panel of 'Indian Idol' after being accused of sexual misconduct by singers Sona Mohapatra and Shweta Pandit.
Neha, who is the latest to join the protest against Anu Malik, also said that industry was not an easy place.
"The industry or the world was not an easy place as a young girl alone away from family due to many such Incidents or getting a hunch of such perverts. Perverts exist inside n outside our industry but why are we so forgiving to the men, do we realise that is what gives them the strength to ruin our dignity, hide us women in our houses. I hid many times so as to not get myself in a sticky situation. Why is it ok? For a man who is predetor to walk free while we hide in shame and fear," she wrote.
Neha also slammed Sony TV for bringing back Anu Malik on the show.
"He has been accused several times. I don't know why he is so precious to them. Or why so many men here are supporting him. Power tripping was a thing of the 90s... so look out perverts, we are not scared."
