That well-known actor raped me: Vinta Nanda

MeTooIndia

I empathise with Vinta for the awful pain she has gone through; it is unimaginable. "It is high time", she said in the statement.

This was after producer Vinta Nanda made stunning disclosures on she was raped and brutalised in the 90s soon after shooting the famous TV series Tara. "The man found his way through the casting route and became one of the lead actors on the show". Navneet Nishan has finally opened up and extended her support to Nanda, who was the writer and producer of Tara. Without naming Nath, she said she also suffered because of this man's "power trip". The actress never had a cordial relationship with her co-star and had called him an alcoholic mess after he labelled her as a drug user in an interview.

"He was an alcoholic, shameless and obnoxious but he was also the television star of that decade, so not only was he forgiven for all his bad behaviour but numerous guys would egg him on to be his worst", the writer-producer wrote about Alok Nath's bad behaviour on the sets of Tara.

After HuffPost India published a detailed account of a woman who was sexually assaulted by Queen director Vikas Bahl in 2015, more women are coming out with their stories of harassment and assault. However, rubbishing all allegations, he said, "Neither I am denying this nor do I would agree with it".

She said the "most hard part" and the "main reason" why she took so long to share the truth was because while she was working on the new series, "he asked me to come to his house again and I went to allow him to violate me". Then at around 2am I left his house. Some time later, he allegedly attempted to get the female lead fired and himself rehired on the show. She shares that Alok told her to "come to his house again and I went to allow him to violate me". I could sense it wouldn't be right for me to stay there any longer. "I have faint memory after that". "When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain. I couldn't get up from my bed", she wrote.

While Nath is yet to address the allegations, the Cine And TV Artistes' Association will issue a showcause notice to the actor to explain why he "should not be expelled", member and actor Sushant Singh tweeted.
