#MeToo: Now Sandhya Mridul accuses Alok Nath of sexual harassment

12 October 2018

In light of these accusations, the Producers Guild of India has set up a committee, headed by Sneha Rajani, to address issues of sexual harassment at the workplace.

Apart from Alok Nath and Nana Patekar, other prominent industry members such as filmmaker Vikas Bahl, singer Kailash Kher and poet-lyricist Vairamuthu have also been implicated as alleged sexual predators in separate #MeToo accounts.

A day earlier, Indian director Vinta Nanda who produced and wrote hit TV serialTara has alleged that veteran actor who was part of the show, raped her.

"At the very start of my career, I was shooting a telefilm in Kodaikanal".

After Vinta Nanda accused Alok Nath of rape, actress Sandhya Mridul shared her horrifying experience of working with the actor. Shahane said in the interview that people in the industry have said that Alok Nath was poor at handling his drinks and this nature of him was known by others in the industry. People are saying that he is no Salman Khan but on Television, he was the top star. "I was a nervous wreck". The latest is Sandhya Mridul, the actress who was seen in films like Page 3, Angry Indian Goddesses and Socha Na Tha among many others. However, she kept mum because the victim has herself asked her to not share the experience.

'I started to walk home on the empty streets. Whom I have always love and respected. "I was shell-shocked; I couldn't muster the courage to speak up against him".

'I have faint memory after that. "I was quite young but I still remember vividly how terrible he was". When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain. "My co-star realised what was happening and got me out of there". I told some of my friends but everybody advised me to forget about it and move on'.

'The man found his way through the casting route and became one of the lead actors on the show. I continued to write the show'. When I want to name them, I will name them. It was after this that I quit'. It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it. As for the matter, if it has come out, it will be stretched.

The Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA) has made a decision to send him a show cause notice. People will say anything to spoil the image.

The incident left a deep impact on her and she further said, "I don't actively do movies anymore. I was made to shoot 18 hours a day, I slept for 4-5 hours if I was lucky".

He is yet to comment on the allegations that have emerged today. "In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything", he added.
