#MeToo: Sandhya Mridul accuses Alok Nath of sexual misconduct
Bollywood actor Alok Nath is facing the wrath of women whom the actor has allegedly been harassing for many years. After writer-producer Vinta Nanda opening up on her heartwrenching ordeal where the actor had been sexually harassing her for a number of years, we had a ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ team member opening up on how she was harassed by Alok Nath on the sets of the Sooraj Barjatya directorial. We now have actress Sandhya Mridul too accusing the veteran actor of the same.
Sandhya Mridul who has done movies like ‘Page 3’, ‘Angry Indian Goddesses‘ and ‘Socha Na Tha’, has opened up about facing sexual harassment by Alok Nath. She shared the ordeal that she faced while in a telefilm with Nath.
Sandhya said, “One night after an early pack up. The cast went out for dinner. At dinner, he got progressively drunk and started insisting I sit with him and that I belonged to him and other stuff that I don’t clearly remember but it made me very nervous and uncomfortable. My co-star realised what was happening and got me out of there.”
Check out her entire statement that she tweeted here.

We do hope that #MeToo movement garners much support from many prominent celebrities and the culprits face the consequences of their actions soon.
