Alok Nath likely to file defamation suit against Sandhya Mridul, Vinta Nanda

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

Following accusations made by Vinta Nanda and actors Sandhya Mridul and Deepika Amin, Renuka, known for championing women's causes on social media and for her support of actor Tanushree Dutta, has said that she was aware of the accusations against the veteran actor. Alok Nath, who became associated with the "sanskaari" tag because of the recurring virtuous roles he played in films and shows, is the subject of the several #MeToo stories beginning with a terrifying account of alleged rape and persecution by Vinta Nanda, the writer of his Nineties' TV show Tara.

Indian actress Sandhya Mridul, who has worked in movies like Page 3 and Saathiya, has also accused Alok Nath of harassing her. I was the leader. He also said that Alok Nath will speak to the media and will call a press conference after two days.

"Alok Nath was very impressed with me and called me "God's own child" and openly praised me every day". I was over the moon. I was a big fan of this wonderful Babuji. I'm grateful and fortunate.

However, she recalled that one night, Alok got 'progressively drunk'. Once I handed him the clothes, he started stripping in front of me. "I'm sorry. More power to you, to all of us". The actors went out for dinner.

In an interview with Mid-Day, the woman recounted her horrific experience during the last schedule of the film in Mumbai. I fell back toward the bathroom door he lunged at me again screaming I want you you're mine. It was an Alok Nath in a state of drunkenness. I instinctively tried to shut the door but he pushed it and lunged at me. Post this, I called my Antakshari assistant Ashwini to come up to the room and stay with me. "I stil feel nauseous when I think of it". 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.

"We were shooting for a night scene and I had taken a change of costumes to him. I heard from actresses that they had a tough time working with him", said Shivpuri, as quoted by Hindustan Times. "I have spoken what I had to because this was a now or never moment for me", she said.

I finally broke my silence, shouted, screamed, cried and it was done.

The writer hailed the move and said, "I am glad CINTAA is taking action against him". But she ran out and managed to get the DOP along with her. The damage was done.

He further revealed that to ensure a "good legal battle" he has advised his client to not make any comments in the media as they can be used against him. You know this to be true.
