Anu Malik denied those allegations against him but as per the reports, he had already paid a heavy toll for it. She revealed that he misbehaved with her, when she was a greenhorn in the Hindi music industry.

"The allegations made against my client are emphatically denied as completely false and baseless". In a long Twitter post, Sameer recounted the incident. In a lengthy social media post, he wrote that Anu Malik asked Shweta to sing but she requested him if she could give the voice test from a separate room.

After Shweta Pandit and Sona Mohapatra's accusations of sexual harassment against Anu Malik, two other women survivors have recently exposed the composer for his misdeeds. And during that time we were working on the song so Anu requested Shweta and her mom to sit in recording hall. After working on song Anu called her, "Beta aap kuch ganna sung chahte ho toh suno". When she said no, he said that then you must be so lonely. While recalling the incident, she said that at the second meeting at Sahara studios during her struggling days, Malik asked her if she had a boyfriend. She said that Malik said that he would give her a song with Sunidhi and Shaan but only if she kissed him. "I told him no and urged him to let me go, but he pulled me by my hair and stuffed my face in his lap, hurling abuses as he did so". I was only 15 years old then, still in school. "I don't know why they are still quiet", she told mid-day, adding that she hopes the channel and production house take a stand against Anu Malik.

While recounting the incident, the survivor told Mid-Day, "He simply unzipped his trousers and asked me to lick him!"

Calling it the "worst experience of her life", the singer said she was depressed for months after the incident and could not even bring it up with her parents.
