Since, Tanushree Dutta spoke out about harassment on Nana Patekar, which initially started India own MeToo movement. After that women came out and spoke about what they have faced. Several stand up comedians, as well as names from Bollywood came out. The latest name is shocking which is Alok Nath. MeToo movement now hit Alok Nath.
India’s MeToo Movement is started.
A TV writer, producer and director Vinita Nanda, who has now come out with an elaborate account of not just being harassed by the male lead actor of her yesteryear hit show Tara, but also being allegedly raped by him.
Though she hasn’t named the actor directly, all the references that she has used to describe him (‘sanskaari’ actor among others) seem to be clearly pointing towards our very own sanskaari babuji Alok Nath
Vinita narrated the incident on her Facebook page which she experienced two decade ago :
I was invited to a party to this mans house, his wife, my best friend was out of town.
It was usual for our group of friends from theatre to meet regularly so there was nothing unusual about my going to the party.
As the evening flowed, my drinks were mixed and I began to feel strange.
Then at around 2am I left his house.
Nobody followed me or offered to drop me home, which was what was rather unusual.
All I knew at the time was that I had to get home. I could sense it wouldn’t be right for me to stay there any longer.
I started to walk home on the empty streets although the distance to my own house was long.
Midway I was accosted by this man who was driving his own car and he asked me to sit in it and said he would drop me home.
I trusted him and sat in his car.
I have faint memory after that.
I can remember more liquor being poured into my mouth and I remember being violated endlessly.
When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain.
I hadn’t just been raped, I was taken to my own house and had been brutalised.
I couldn’t get up for my bed.
I told some of my friends but everybody advised me to forget about it and move on.

We were in and out of each other’s homes, we belonged to the same group of friends, most…

Im pretty sure most men in the film industry are experiencing sleepless nights these days as #aloknath -the so called #sanskaari bapuji makes it to expanding list of predators. Like Kangana said in a film – abhi toh inhe aur zaleel hona hai. Bring it on!

Just spoke to a few senior journalists and they tell me #Aloknath always had a bad image in the industry – He is known to be a drunkard and extremely rude personality in real life. The #Sanskaari image is nothing but “DHONG”
