Alok Nath On Vinta Nanda Allegations: I Made Her What She Is!

MeTooIndia #MeToo: Tara writer Vinta Nanda accuses 'most sanskaari' actor of rape, netizens want Alok Nath jailed

It took Vinta 20 long years to overcome the trauma. In the Facebook post, where she mentioned that she was sexually violated by the star TV actor of the 90s, she refrained from naming him.

Actor Sushant Singh, general secretary of CINTAA, said: "We, at CINTAA, would like to begin by saying we believe every word that Vinta Nanda has said about Alok Nath".

The shocking post within minutes took the media by storm with such high-level finger pointing towards the respected and appreciated father figure of Indian Film Screen. The producer also alleged that he had all her shows at the channel shut down, leading to the closure of her production company.

The "most hard part" and the "main reason" why Nanda took so long to come out with the truth was because while she was working on this new series, she says, "he asked me to come to his house again and I went to allow him to violate me".

Journalist Sandhya Menon who has been one of the main drivers of this phase of the movement in the country, has been sharing the deeply disturbing allegations she has been receiving from diverse women professionals made against industry stalwarts. I have faint memory after that. When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain. She goes on to describe the morning after a party at this man's house at the end of which he drives her home. According to a NewsMinute report, the actor, speaking to a news channel, said: "It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it. Well, I do not want to talk much about it as for the matter if it has come out, it will be stretched." this is how Alok Nath reacted to Vinta's sensible allegations.

Alok has said the allegation was "absurd" as he "made her what she is".

Talking about how she feels fearless after letting it out, Nanda said, "He did not deny it even in 2003, 2004 and 2005 when I had talked, written about it and published it". I dealt with the four year harassment by slapping the man in question and it is done and dusted.

"I was completely shattered by then", Nanda said. "It is high time", she stated. "I could sense it wouldn't be right for me to stay there any longer", she wrote. The two were working together in a show called Tara that used to air on Zee TV, and Vinta also claimed that Alok had misbehaved with the lead actress of the show, Navneet Nishan.

Though Vinta didn't name Alok in her original post, it didn't take the online community to connect the dots; especially because Navneet had spoken about his misconduct way back in 1994.

Many women in India have in recent days taken to social media to out sexual predators, emboldening others to come out with their experiences.
