Mumbai, Oct 18: Singer Anu Malik has denied allegations that he sexually harassed singer Shweta Pandit, who has called him a "paedophile" and "sexual predator"."The allegations made against my client are emphatically denied as completely false and baseless. My client respects the #MeToo movement but to use this movement to start a character assassination mission is obnoxious," Malik's lawyer Zulfiqar Memon told IANS.
Pandit, in a Twitter post, recounted her ordeal with Malik in an incident dating back to 2000. She claims once in a cabin at a studio, he told her he would give her a song with Sunidhi Chauhan and Shaan "but first give me a kiss now".
"He then smiled, what I would recall the evilest grin I've seen," Pandit said of the incident when she was all of 15 years old.Before Shweta, singer Sona Mohapatra called out Malik.
