‘Tara’ Lead Actor Accused of Sexual Assault by Producer

MeToo Shocks Bollywood! Mallika Dua Joins Vinta Nanda in Accusing the'Most Sanskari Babuji of Rape

In a shocking turn of events on the movement, revered TV and film personality Alok Nath, who has played the roles of father, grandfather on-screen in nearly all the shows, has been accused by a woman of rape.

As more and more women are coming up with their #MeToo incidents, Vinta Nanda, writer and producer of some of the top shows of "90s, most notable among them 'Tara", shared her horrifying story on Facebook. In the post, she does not explicitly name Alok Nath, instead identifying him as an actor in Tara and "the most #Sanskaari (Cultured) person in the film and television industry".


After the incident, she was going through a tough period professionally and was writing and directing another show when Nath again managed to join the cast of the serial. He spoke to ABP and said, "Neither I am denying this nor do I would agree with it". According to him, rape must have happened but someone else would have done it. I shout out to each one of you who have suffered at the hands of predators to come out and say it aloud. "All our shows went off air with immediate effect and my production company was made to shut down", she wrote. "In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything". "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", Nanda wrote. Some time later, he allegedly attempted to get the female lead fired and himself rehired on the show.

"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, numerous guys would also egg him on to be his worst", Nanda wrote, adding that he even harassed the show's lead actress who was not interested in him. Tara was broadcast on ZEE TV. Vinita further wrote, "I was invited to a party to this mans house, his wife, my best friend was out of town". She shares that Alok told her to "come to his house again and I went to allow him to violate me". Then at around 2am I left his house. She underwent a nervous breakdown and revealed how channels and sets started to "freak her out", detailing how she would break down while pitching ideas to channels. I continued to write, but the couple of times that I pushed myself and found the courage to pitch for shows, I would break down during meetings. "Finally, I gave up". "Nobody followed me or offered to drop me home, which was what was rather unusual".
