Tanushree gave me courage to speak about assault: Vinta Nanda

Tanushree gave me courage to speak about assault: Vinta Nanda

In a press conference on Tuesday, Nanda said when she spoke about the incident, everyone around her told her "to keep quiet, shut up".

Reacting to Nanda's allegations, Cine And TV Artistes' Association or CINTAA official and actor Sushant Singh tweeted that Nath would be sent a show cause notice asking him to explain why he should not immediately be expelled from the film body.

Vinta Nanda in an interview to news agency ANI said that she will be meeting advisors and will decide her course of action.

While Nanda stopped short of naming Nath, in a Facebook post on Monday, the writer and producer of 1990's television show Tara alleged that the "lead actor" of the show and the "television star of that decade" not just raped her, but "brutalised" her in her own home.

Nanda alleged that Nath sexually assaulted her on more than one occasion after he was sacked from the 1993 show for misbehaving with its lead actor, Navneet Nishan. When he failed in all his attempts, he managed to get the Tara lead - Navneet Nishan sacked after she complained overtly.

When she felt that it was time to go home, she was approached by the said "man" who asked her to sit in his vehicle.

It was so brutal that the next morning she woke up, it was paining badly. He even added that it is him who made her what she is!

Bollywood was shaken with the allegations.

Alok Nath as we know, has acquired the "sanskaari" tag by playing a series of virtuous and honorable father figures.

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. "Well, I do not want to talk much about it As for the matter, if it has come out, it will be stretched", he said. She says the actor, known for his "sanskaari" on-screen image, raped her nearly two decades ago. I was questioning myself... I fought my battles there and then.

In the powerful post, she calls out to all who have suffered sexual harassment in their lives.

Nanada went on to write that her drink was mixed with sedative during the party and she began to feel 'strange.' "As the evening flowed, my drinks were mixed and I began to feel odd". He also went on to say that Vinta is saying all this because of the #Metoo wave going on in the industry now. I suffered the loss of the show and was further shamed by the man through media and I endured that. "It is high time". However, given the references about the show, people drew the parallels and in no time the comment section of the post was flooded with people mentioning Alok Nath as the accused.

The "Me Too" storm intensified with more women recounting their experiences of sexual harassment in the entertainment and media industry. Bollywood figures, stand-up comedians and other top journalists have all found themselves accused of abusing their positions to behave improperly towards women. She added Nath would use his influence and, continued to hound and sexually harass in the years to come which led to her "nervous breakdown". However, that soon followed producers asking Nanda to change the female lead as well.
