TV actress Deepika Amin accuses Alok Nath of sexual misconduct, Renuka Shahane supports her claims 

#MeToo movement has opened new vortexes (not the pleasant ones!) for Alok Nath, who has now been accused of sexual misconduct by more than one woman. After former Tara producer accused him of rape, TV actress Sandhya Mridul also narrated how the ‘Sanskari’ babuji of the television world allegedly tried to force himself on her during an outdoor shoot. Now after them, another TV actress has claimed that Alok Nath has sexually harassed her.

On Wednesday, Deepika Amin shared her own #MeToo story on the social media. 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”

Deepika Amin shared the screen space with Alok Nath in the film Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. She shared the detailed account of her sexual harassment on the social media.

Her Facebook post further read, “But recently on the shoot of Sonu Ke Titu ki Sweety he was quiet and subdued . Maybe he has changed? Maybe because the director Luv Ranjan made it clear he wouldn’t tolerate bad behaviour. But after reading Vinta Nanda’s heartbreaking account I felt I had to support her. BELIEVE WOMEN . They have everything to lose by speaking out. #IbelieveyouVintaNanda #metoo #Timesup”

While talking to Firstpost, Deepika Amin shared, “This is an open secret in the industry. When actors sit around and chat, I’ve heard male actors say that women on set were upset with Alok Nath because he would knock on their doors at night. I wish some of these male actors would come forward.”

Alok Nath’s onscreen daughter Renuka Shahane opens up about him, says ‘he is different person when drunk’

 

Renuka Shahane, who played Alok Nath’s onscreen daughter-in-law corroborated her story and wrote, “Yes I remember telling you Renuka. And to those asking- why speak now- well i didnt hide it. The whole unit witnessed his bad behaviour. But no one said anything to him. @sandymridul s unit knew as well. Why didn’t they give him an ultimatum?”

The #MeToo movement kickstarted in India after Tanushree Dutta came forward with her allegations against Nana Patekar. The actress has recently filed FIR against the veteran actor and three others in Mumbai.
