Music director-singer Anu Malik had stepped down from the judging panel of Indian Idol, the singing reality tv show after having been accused in the #MeToo movement. The music sensation was booked for sexual harassment as claimed by singers Sona Mohapatra and Shweta Pandit. The news of Anu Malik returning on the show as the jury had been doing the rounds for a while and had faded away. However now, Bollywood Life has exclusively brought out the news of Anu Malik coming back on the show along with co-judges Neha Kakkar and Vishal Dadlani.

The music composer is believed to have shot for a promo of the upcoming season. The makers decided to have him back in unison as Anu has been a part of the show ever since it first aired in 2004. With Indian Idol, Anu Malik is a name that comes as a synonym of the show without whom the show seems incomplete. 

It came as a major setback to the music director as he went on from being super busy to being unemployed after the Me Too incident. Anu had earlier opened up on the episode and said that he used to be flooded with offers juggling between radio, television and films, not being able to make time to differentiate between day and night. However, post the allegations, he faced severe rejection from the producers and on television. 

Indian Idol has been the longest-running singing reality show in the country. Anu Malik has been the part and parcel of the show since the beginning and the show is not the same without his added comments and sher-o-Shayari amidst the contestants performing.
