That well-known actor raped me: Vinta Nanda

Writer-director Vinta Nanda, who has accused Alok Nath of raping and harassing her, says while she was not anxious about naming the actor, she did not realise that the incident which scarred her life 20 years ago will blow up on social media.

In a Facebook post on Monday, Vinta alleged that Nath raped her a couple of times 19 years ago after he was sacked from their show Tara for misbehaving with its lead actress.

"Irony is that the man, the predator in question here is the actor par excellence who is known as the most #Sanskaari (cultured) person in the film and television industry", Nanda added in the post. Though she hasn't named the accused, the usage of 'Sanskari in the description clearly point at the actor Alok Nath, who is referred to as sanskaari babuji.

"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.

She alleged that after he found out that the team was thinking of dropping him for his obnoxious behaviour, Nath came to the sets drunk.

The actor also went on to say that he is unfazed by what people will say after being accused of a sexual violation. "When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain". He created an environment in which I was made to feel threatened, so I asked the producers to release me from directing the series because I didn't want to be around where he was.

After the splendid performance against the Fulham , Unai Emery is of the opinion that Lucas Torreira is full of confidence now and that he can play at the "best level" for the club.

In a statement to NDTV, she said, "I support every woman and man who is standing up for herself/himself in the #MeToo movement".

The production team had chose to remove him from the show, she adds. It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it.

"When she complained to us, we made a decision to let him go", she wrote. "I will be exploring things, I want to protect myself".

Alok Nath has responded to Nanda's allegations, saying to news channel ABP News: "Neither I am denying this nor do I would agree with it. It was after this that I quit", she said. "In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything".

"He continued to drink till the time he was called for the shot", she added, "When the moment came and the camera rolled, he felt up our female lead and very viciously". Agnihotri's lawyer denied the "frivolous" claims.
