Alok Nath On Vinta Nanda Allegations: I Made Her What She Is!

"Kuch to log kahenge (people always have something to say)". In a long Facebook post on Monday, the woman behind one of India's most forward looking soaps from 90s, Tara, accused actor Alok Nath of assaulting her sexually on more than one occasion. Alok is known for his roles as a stereotypical Indian father, personifying religious traditions and moral values in films and TV shows.

"When I spoke years ago, not a single person came in support of me".

Mumbai: Actor Alok Nath, who has been accused of rape by "Tara" writer-producer Vinta Nanda, on Tuesday said the allegation is "absurd" as he "made her what she is". Twitter has been baying for Ms Nanda's alleged rapist Alok Nath's blood since her Facebook post last evening detailing not just the harrowing rape but also the years of isolation, depression, trauma and suffering that she endured after.

Vinta, in her account, describes how her drinks were allegedly spiked at a party at Alok's house nearly a decade ago. I can remember more liquor being poured into my mouth and I remember being violated endlessly.

It was so brutal that the next morning she woke up, it was paining badly. I hadn't just been raped, I was taken to my own house and had been brutalised", she said, "I couldn't get up for (sic) my bed. I was insulted and humiliated by the CEO, asked to get out of his office and told that women like me should be thrown out of the country.

After the incident, Nanda said that she narrated her ordeal to her friends but they asked her to keep quiet and move on. Now, she says, she's not afraid.

It is very hard but we must prepare, continue improving and show big commitment", said Emery. We worked and, with patience, we knew we could go forward.

Despite adhering to the change ordered by the channel, Nanda said, four of her other shows running on the same channel along with "Tara" were sent off air by the newly appointed CEO in the aftermath of Nath's departure. "I could sense it wouldn't be right for me to stay there any longer", she wrote.

"We don't have a redressal system in the industry", she added. "I needed the job and didn't want to leave it as I needed the money". "It was after this that I quit", she said. People will say anything to spoil the image.

Asserting that the "drug user" allegations against her by Alok Nath are absolutely fabricated, she had said, "It's taken me 8 years to get where I am and I don't want some alcoholic fool to mess it up for me". It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it (sic).

Recounting her ordeal, Nanda said Nath's wife was her best friend. She added that she also suffered because of this man's "power trip" but made it stop by slapping him eventually.

"However, we only have to hear to women's stand because they are considered weak". "In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything", he said. "It is high time", she stated. But the global #MeToo phenomenon encouraged her to go public again and on Saturday to file a police complaint against Patekar, who issued a denial. Agnihotri's lawyer denied the "frivolous" claims.
