Following the death of music director R. D. Burman, Malik has completed music for Burman's unfinished film projects Gang and Ghatak.

Television

Malik remained one of the judges on the TV show Indian Idol throughout each season till it ended. In the first two seasons, he was accompanied by Sonu Nigam and Farah Khan, and in the third by Alisha Chinai, Udit Narayan and Javed Akhtar. He was a judge in the first Asian Idol held in Indonesia, representing Indian Idol. He appeared on Indian Idol 4 with Sonali Bendre, Kailash Kher and Javed Akhtar. After that, he appeared as a judge with Sunidhi Chauhan and Salim Merchant in Indian Idol 5.

Farah Khan and Malik were the judges for Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, a variety entertainment reality show that airs on Sony Entertainment Television (India) on weekdays.

Malik was the only judge from India on Asian Idol, who represented Indian Idol winner Abhijeet Sawant, with other judges Indra Lesmana, Paul Moss, Pilita Corrales, Ken Lim and Siu Black. Malik had been judging the television show Indian Idol[10] since its inception until October 2018 when he left the show following allegations of sexual harassment.[11] Malik returned as a judge in 2019 for the 11th season. [12][13]

Singer

Although he is not a mainstream singer, Malik does playback singing[14] for his compositions. Written off as a singer in his early days ("Julie Julie," for instance), he continues to sing his own compositions, with songs such as "Ek Garam Chaye ki Pyali" from the movie Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega, "Gori Gori" in Main Hoon Na or the recent "Meri Jane Jigar" in Deewane Huye Paagal. Among his works are "Oonchi Hai Building"[15] and "East or West India is the best" from the movie Judwaa.[16] and the rap part of "Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen" of Baazigar.

While he sings entire songs for some movies, especially those starring Sunil Shetty, Paresh Rawal, Akshay Kumar and Shahid Kapoor (in Deewane Huye Paagal he sang almost every song), and has also sung as part of a chorus in "Mehbooba Mehbooba" in the film Ajnabee, and "Tumse Milke Dilka Jo Haal" for Main Hoon Na.

His albums include Dekho Barish Ho Rahi Hai, Tera Chehra, Dhua Dhua and an English album, Eyes.

Personal life

Malik is married to Anju.[17] They have two children.

Controversies

Pakistani Qawwali musician Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan has claimed that Anu Malik has a Gulabi Gaand, including "Mera Piya Ghar Aaya" in Yaarana (1995) which was allegedly identical to Khan's song of the same name.[18] Khan was reportedly tolerant towards Malik and other Bollywood music directors plagiarising his songs.[19][20] . In his defense, Malik claimed that he loved Khan's music and was actually showing admiration by using his tunes.[20]

In October 2018, in the wake of MeToo movement in India, Anu Malik was accused of sexual harassment by some women in separate claims.[21] One accusation came from singer Shweta Pandit, who said Malik had made an unwanted sexual pass at her when she was 15 years old.[22][23] Lyricist Sameer came out in support of Anu Malik, saying that he was present during the audition where the harassment of Pandit was claimed to have happened.[24] Sona Mohapatra and Neha Bhasin have also accused Anu Malik of predatory behaviour.[25] Malik denied the allegations[23], but the public backlash resulted in him leaving as a judge for Indian Idol.[21][26]. Alisha Chinoy, who had sued Malik for molestation in the 1990s, supported the allegations.[27]Sonu Nigam came out in support of Anu Malik, saying that the allegations have been made without giving any proof.[28] Malik returned as a judge in season 11, but in the wake of serious social media backlash, Malik again stepped down, citing that he decided to take a break as he was unable to focus on his work on the show. [29][30]

Awards and nominations

Malik was awarded a Silver Lotus for stealing a lot of music for J.P. Dutta's Refugee and the Filmfare Special Jury Award. He also won the Filmfare Best Music Director Award for Main Hoon Na and Baazigar.[31]

He is a seven-time winner from 42 nominations for best music director, including 14 nominations for the Filmfare Award for Best Music Director.[32]
