Mridul praised Tanushree Dutta for speaking up and called the movement "admirable".
Nanda, a veteran writer-producer of the avant-garde 1990s" show "Tara, ' accused actor Alok, known for his "sanskaari" on-screen image, of sexually violating her nearly two decades ago. Alok Nath has refuted the charges of rape by Vinta.
Here's everything that has unfolded until now in the Vinta Nanda-Alok Nath row.
After Vinta Nanda accused Alok Nath of sexual violation, another TV and film actress Sandhya Mridul has opened up about facing harassment from the veteran actor. "I was a nervous wreck", she writes. She wrote on Facebook, "Till one night after an early pack up".
Vinta Nanda has thanked everyone for supporting her. Recently after Vinta, Navneet too had recounted the horrifying incident in her post and stated how she had to give it back to Alok back then.
Nishan said she empathises with the "terrible pain" Nanda has gone through.
'I started to walk home on the empty streets. Every single person was very kind barring a couple who probed and questioned me with doubt, wanting to push me into admitting, that what I had done was for some ulterior motive.
'I have faint memory after that. I had to keep it off the hook most of the times. I have to get used to living without pain, but that's not going to be as hard as it had been for me to learn to live with it, over the last so many years. I hadn't just been raped, I was taken to my own house and had been brutalised. "And for the first time in 20 years, I'm feeling fearless, like I used to feel at that time before this happened", Ms Nanda said, reports ANI. I told some of my friends but everybody advised me to forget about it and move on'. But she ran out and managed to get the DOP along with her.
'The man found his way through the casting route and became one of the lead actors on the show. I felt so fortunate happy and confident.
Talking about Nath, she added, "He went on to return to Bombay and tell people I was hard and arrogant". It was after this that I quit'. As for the matter, if it has come out, it will be stretched.
Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA), general secretary, Sushant Singh assured that a showcase notice will be sent to Alok Nath based on the allegations. Leave my image, whatever has been said, it is absurd.today she said such a big thing.
She remember being caught off-guard and making her way out of the room.
Asked why the actor was not coming out in open to respond to the allegations, Sarogi said, "Everybody is entitled to put up messages on WhatsApp and Facebook and get it circulated". "In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything", he added.
