Actor Alok Nath, accused of rape by writer producer Vinta Nanda has moved the court pleading for anticipatory bail. Describing Vinta’s allegation as malicious, Alok’s lawyer is quoted as saying, “She has woken up like Rip Van Winkle after 20 years to file the case. My client’s reputation is affected. His liberty is affected.”

To which Vinta responded saying that she had no idea she was opening up a pandora’s box when she spoke against Alok Nath. “When I came out with the truth in October 2018, other than what he had done to me, I was only aware about Alok Nath having harassed Navneet Nishan relentlessly for over four years during the making of Tara. But soon after that, when I heard what he had done with Sandhya Mridul, Deepika Amin, Himani Shivpuriji and several others I realised that we were not the only two he had bullied.”

 

No matter how malicious Alok sees Vinta’s intent to be, the fact is, the issue has gone far beyond her. Says Vinta, “Here is a serial offender we’re talking about, one who was vicious and unpardonably volatile in his behaviour with every powerful woman he encountered in his work space. Let time reveal the truth.”
