#Me Too : Alok Nath raped me, claims Tv Show Writer Vinta Nanda

As part of #Me Too movement, Veterna TV writer, producer and director Vinta Nanda, alleged that actor Alak Nath, who portrays god fearing and religious man in on screen, has raped her more than once.

He was sacked from then iconic show 19 years ago for sexual misconduct with it’s lead actress too, Vinta claimed.

Vinta made the revelation in an elaborate Facebook post.

She describes how Alok’s wife was one of her best friends who visited each other’s homes often and made their “arts shine in the content renaissance that came along with satellite television in 1990s.”

On Alok, Vinta said he was an entitled drunk : “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 many of the guys would egg him on to be at his worst,” wrote Vrinda.

Vinta further alleges that four shows that did well on TV were unceremoniously pulled off air after Nath’s sacking. The newly appointed channel CEO, Vinta claims, asked for their closures and insulted her saying women like her should be thrown out of the county.

On the first instance of rape, Vinta writes ““I was invited to a party to this man’s 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.”

Following the revelation, several celebrities have taken to Twitter to support Vinta and shame Alok.
