Actress Sandhya Mridul, who has been vocal about “Me Too” movement and avid supporters, and had a similar horrifying experience with Alok Nath, expressed her gratitude. She tweeted, “It took a while…but, we did it…! I hoped but never imagined this day would come. Thank you @CintaaOfficial @sushant_says @vintananda #metoo”
A little while ago, Writer-producer Vinta Nanda accused actor Alok Nath of allegedly raping her. She narrated her horrifying ordeal in a Facebook post. She was the writer and producer of television serial ‘Tara’ in the 90s, in which Nath played a lead role.
The actor had later filed a civil defamation suit against the Nanda after she accused him of rape. He also sought a written apology, along with a compensation of Re 1 and a restraining order against Nanda. However, the application was rejected by Mumbai’s Dindoshi Sessions Court.
