India's Me Too Movement has finally arrived and women have got the courage to share their ordeal in front of the whole country. They are now naming their sexual offenders and their stories are heart-wrenching. After Vinta Nanda, Sandhya Mridul and an anonymous crew member from the film Hum Saath - Saath Hain, actress Deepika Amin has now accused actor Alok Nath of harassing her. In an elaborate Facebook post, Deepika Amin shared her story.
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. I was quite young but I still remember vividly how horrible he was." She added, "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."
