When asked if the makers of the show had approached him to join back as a judge, Anu told news agency IANS over phone: “Right now, I am at a recording. All I can say at this point of time…no comments.”
According to a source, the auditions will begin soon. There is no confirmation whether the makers will bring back Anu Malik on the show or not, but Vishal Dadlani and Neha Kakkar are expected to return and perform their judging duties in the upcoming season of Indian Idol.
