Allegations against Alok Nath are piling up. After Vinta Nanda and Sandhya Mridul, actor Deepika Amin has now come forward with her tale of harassment at the hands of Nath.
Taking to Twitter, Amin wrote how during an outdoor shoot, early in her career, Nath tried to barge into her room. She wrote: “Everyone in the industry knows that #AlokNath is an obnoxious drunkard who harasses women. Years ago on a telefilm outdoor shoot he tried to barge into my room. He slobbered over women, drunk and created a scene. The unit rallied around me and made sure I was safe. #metoo.”
She added that her unit then protected her from him and hence she felt safe, reports the Hindustan Times. Amin further wrote on Facebook that she was quite young at that time but remembers “vividly how horrible he was”. She goes on to elaborate how she again worked with him recently in the film ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ (2018) but he was sober on the sets.
On 8th October, writer-director Nanda, known for her TV series ‘Tara,’ wrote a long post detailing how she was raped 19 years ago by Nath while she was on her way back from a party. On Wednesday, actor Mridul shared her story from her early days as an actor when she was attacked by a drunk Nath while on an outdoor shoot.
