A few days ago, Malik had stepped down as judge from the ongoing season 11 of the music reality TV show after growing outcry against him over allegations of sexual harassment, levelled by singer Sona Mohapatra. He then said Indian Idol has been the best and the most regular platform for singers and has given many iconic singers to the industry. I am extremely elated. "From here on the responsibility only increases two fold", the composer said in a statement.More news: Putin, Xi inaugurate `Power of Siberia` pipeline to boost energy ties
Malik, in a statement, had denied the allegations, saying he was being "cornered" for something he did not do. The composer also said that he maybe forced to take legal action to defend himself.

"I walked up to Sony and I told them that because of these idiotic, horrible, malicious things that you will read on Twitter, how will you work? I will approach it with my heart and soul and will guide the participants with love and the right advice". Let me clear my name and come back.
