“My client respects the #MeToo movement but to use this movement to start a character assassination mission is obnoxious.”

Pandit is not the first one to name the music director, currently a judge on reality singing TV show “Indian Idol”.

Last week, singer Sona Mohapatra had also called Malik a “serial predator”, a claim he had denied.
