Speaking to Pinkvilla, Anu Malik has been quoted saying, “I have requested SAI to call the singers who have been carrying out this social media campaign against me and explain themselves. If they have proof whatsoever against me, why don’t they show it? I am ready to face an inquiry. But, this entire malicious campaign against me has left me nowhere. I will clear my name soon and return with a clear mind.”
Further revealing the reason behind quitting Indian Idol 11, Malik said, “I have taken this decision voluntarily because I could not take the malicious allegations anymore and wants to return once my name is cleared off. The channel has been very supportive.”
