Senior TV and Hindi film actor Alok Nath, who was seen in supporting roles in many blockbusters in the 1990s, has been accused of raping a writer named Vinta Nanda.

Vinta Nanda joined a #MeToo movement by sharing a terrifying post on Facebook last night, in which she shared about terrible experience during shoot of Tara and rape incident. 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". When asked about the accusations, he proclaimed, In a further statement that reeks of toxic masculinity, Alok Nath managed to call Nanda a friend and insult her by taking credit for her success.

After her successful TV show, Tara, was shut down, Nanda said, Nath invited her to a party. "Nobody followed me or offered to drop me home, which was what was rather unusual", she wrote. Taking to Twitter, the body's secretary, Sushant Singh, said that a show-cause notice will be sent to Nath to explain on the allegations of sexual assault. "I remember being violated endlessly". I couldn't get up for my bed. "When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain".

Apart from the allegations, Nanda had also revealed in her post that their friends had patched them up after the first horrific incident she mentioned. After the actress complained, Vinta removed the accused actor from the show. She further added that after nearly 19 years she is feeling fearless and it is he, Alok Nath who should feel scared. In a Facebook post shared on October 8, Nanda alleged that she had been "raped" and "brutalised". "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 shares that Alok told her to "come to his house again and I went to allow him to violate me. It was after this that I quit".
