Veteran actor Alok Nath, who is known for playing the roles of a stereotypical Indian father on large screen, had his image on point until writer-producer Vinita Nanda came out of the shell to accuse him of raping and harassing her. After Nanda’s shocking revelation about the actor, a Hum Saath Saath Hain crew member revealed how Alok stripped in front of her on the sets of the film and manhandled her. Things did not stop there as Sandhya Mridul also accused Alok Nath of violating her sexually.
Now another fresh allegation has come up against the ‘Sanskaari’ Alok Nath as Deepika Amin revealed her shocking experience regarding the actor. Amin, who recently worked with Alok in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, called him a drunkard who has a habit of harassing women.
“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”.

According to India.com, Deepika shared the horrific incident with Firstpost saying:
“I was young then. Alok Nath was playing my father (in the telefilm). It was an off day (on set) and everyone was in the hotel. It was morning around 10AM or so and Alok Nath knocked on my door. I opened my door and there he was standing, leaning against the door.”
“He came in and sat down on the bed. I stood at the door, as I didn’t know what to do. I purposefully kept the door open as members of the unit were milling about. Then I saw an AD (assistant director), waved brightly at him, said ‘Hi’ and called him in. When he came in (to my room), he saw this person sitting on the bed, and he realised [what was going on]. He tried to help me. Alok Nath kept mumbling something (in a drunken state). And then he decided to go. While stepping out, he fell flat on his face, hit his head on the floor. He got up, lurched out and then walked away.”
Not only Alok Nath but many other veteran actors like Nana Patekar, Ronit Roy, and Rajat Kapoor has also been unmasked by the #MeToo movement. It all started with Tanushree Dutta revealing the dark days of her life accusing Nana Patekar of sexual assault and now nothing is stopping women to come forward and share their stories as well.
