After Vinta Nanda & Sandhya Mridul, Deepika Amin Accuses Alok Nath Of Harassment! Actress Sandhya Mridul shared her horrifying experience of working with the actor. Now, actress Deepika Amin has accused Alok Nath of harassment and shown her support to Vinta .
She recounts how during an outdoor shoot for a telefilm Nath tried to barge into her room. She wrote on social media, “Everyone in the industry knows that #AlokNath is an obnoxious drunkard who harasses women. Years ago on a telefilm outdoor shoot he tried to barge into my room. He slobbered over women, drunk and created a scene. The unit rallied around me and made sure I was safe. I was quite young but I still remember vividly how horrible he was.”
BELIEVE WOMEN- says Deepika
Deepika, who recently worked with Nath in a movie said that his behaviour was better on the sets. “But recently on the shoot of Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety he was quiet and subdued . Maybe he has changed? Maybe because the director Luv Ranjan made it clear he wouldn’t tolerate bad behaviour. But after reading Vinta Nanda’s heartbreaking account I felt I had to support her. BELIEVE WOMEN . They have everything to lose by speaking out. #IbelieveyouVintaNanda #metoo #Timesup,” she wrote.
Alok Nath has denied Vinta’s allegations
He said “In the current situation, if a women accuses a man, no one will consider to listen to a man’s version so it’s useless to react. I know her(Vinta Nanda) very well. I would not like to comment on it. She has the right to put forward her thoughts. Right now, I am trying to come to terms with the whole thing. Will comment later.”
According to latest reports, the actor is all set to take legal action against Vinta.
Seeing the number of allegations against the veteran actor, the Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA) has issued a notice to him seeking his stand.
Speaking at a press conference, IFTDA president Ashok Pandit said, “The entire federation supports the #MeToo movement. We have already drafted a notice which is to be issued to Alok Nath because Vinta Nanda is also a very respectable member of IFTDA.
