Much loved actress Himani Shivpuri has said that Alok Nath’s behaviour was known by many and has referred to it as “open secret”.
“If he (Nath) has done it, then it is very bad. You cannot force any woman to do anything against her will, using your power. It is tough for women… Whenever we shot in daytime, he would be mild and normal but after having liquor he used to be this Jekyll and Hyde person. He used to change completely. I heard from actresses that they had a tough time working with him,” said Shivpuri, as quoted by Hindustan Times.
Shivpuri has worked with Nath in a number of films over the years, some which have been major hits. She continued, “People were not that willing to open up at that time, even Vinta reported this after so many years… While we were in Dubai once for ITA awards, he had consumed liquor and his wife was worried and was disturbed with his behaviour as he was drunk. He was also once caught peeing in open and was deplaned from a flight as he had misbehaved on the flight.”
She also added, “Media it seems was ill-informed about his image. Everybody knows what kind of a person is. Some things are open secret in the industry”.
Nath has been accused of rape and sexual harassment from the producer of CINTAA Vinta Nanda as well as actress Sandhya Mridul to name just two.
