Writer-producer Vinta Nanda accused sanskaari veteran actor Alok Nath of raping and harassing her 19 years back when they were working on the hit show ‘Tara’. Soon after her allegations, several other actresses came forward to share how Alok would embarrass and harass them with his behaviour.

Alok Nath replying to Vinta’s allegations in an interview to ABP said, “Kuch to log kahenge. Neither I am denying this nor do I would agree with it. 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.”

Not only Vinta Nanda, but actresses Sandhya Mridul and Deepika Amin too accused Nath. Now the veteran actor has not only filed a criminal complaint but has also sent a defamation notice to Vinta Nanda. Nath’s lawyer told NDTV, “We have requested the court to order police to investigate the allegations. The allegations are meant to tarnish our client’s image. We do not want to seek monetary compensation.” 

Nath is also demanding that Nanda takes down her post in which she has shared her ordeal about how he raped her and took advantage of her as well other actresses.

Meanwhile, FWICE has sent a notice to Alok Nath seeking his reply on the issue. And we wonder if Alok will send notice to other actresses as well who have accused him of misbehaviour.
