Alok Nath Accused Of Rape!
Vinta Nanda, a veteran writer-producer of the avant-garde 1990s’ show Tara fame, has accused actor Alok Nath of sexually violating her almost two decades ago.
She shared her story on a facebook post.
The story did not just end there the famous actor could not handle being kicked out of the show.
“I have waited for this moment to come for 19 years,” Nanda wrote in a long, heart-wrenching Facebook post, referring to the “predator in question” as “the actor par excellence who is known as the most ‘sanskaari‘ (cultured) person in the film and television industry”.
Nanda said, “It is Alok Nath. I thought saying ‘sanskaari‘ would do the needful.”
Cine And TV Artistes’ Association or CINTAA has reacted promptly. Actor Sushant Singh, a CINTAA official, tweeted today to say that Mr Nath will be sent a show cause notice asking him to explain why he should not immediately be expelled from the film body. Mr Singh also advised Vinta Nanda to file a formal complaint, promising full support.
Vinta Nanda’s traumatic experience has been described as ‘terrifying’ and ‘heart-wrenching’ on Twitter, with many calling for Alok Nath to be prosecuted.
Filmmaker Vikas Bahl, singer Kailash Kher and actor Rajat Kapoor have also been outed as alleged predators.
