#MeToo: Actress Sandhya Mridul accuses Alok Nath of sexual harassment

HOLLYWOOD CALIFORNIA- APRIL 06 Sandhya Mridul arrives for the 14th Indian Film Festival Of Los Angeles- Opening Night Red Carpet at Arc Light Hollywood

The #MeToo movement gained momentum in India after Tanushree Dutta spoke up against Nana Patekar nearly two weeks ago. After Anurag Kashyap dissolved Phantom Productions in response to serious allegations on his ex-partner Vikas Bahl, writer and director Vinta Nanda named and shamed Alok Nath for brutally raping her more than a decade ago. Talented actress Sandhya Mridul too mentioned a similar experience with Alok Nath.

Veteran Bollywood and television actor Alok Nath has made a decision to take legal against writer-producer Vinta Nanda, who has accused him of raping her.

In the past few days, many women not only from Bollywood but from the other industries as well, have come forward and narrated their traumatising stories of assault. "Her suggestive remarks like "sanskaari" and that the person concerned was the "lead actor" and a 'television star of that decade" were good enough to determine that Vinta was indeed referring to Alok. "I am so sorry", she wrote.

Though she shot the schedule despite all this, she said, the incident scarred her for life. "But Vinta's post brought it all back", she said. "A very disillusioned, disgraced and unsure me returned home". Whom I have always love and respected. "I believed him. I had to".

'I have faint memory after that. When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain.

Later, her hairdresser was moved into her room as a safety measure. Till one night after an early pack up. She said, "I was motivated by Tanushree, seeing her speaking up I felt that I should also speak".

Thanking co-stars and staff for protecting her, she quoted, "I'm grateful to my co-actors, my DOP & especially the late Reema lagoo for finally taking him on & protecting me like a mother from then on". Well, I do not want to talk much about it. However, we only have to hear to women's stand because they are considered weak'.

Meanwhile, Sushant Singh, who is general secretary of the Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA), has assured Vinta that they will send a show cause notice to the veteran actor. "It is absurd and a ploy to sabotage my image".

She further detailed how Nath praised her profusely, however his behavior soon starting to make Sandhya feel uncomfortable. Ms Nanda said that Mr Nath didn't deny he was her alleged rapist when she spoke about it earlier and the fact that he is denying it now means he's scared. In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything'.
