Bollywood Actor Denying allegations of rape leveled by writer-director Vinta Nanda. Alok Nath’s lawyer said that he would file a defamation against the Vinita Nand who had made such claims. He also said that they would not take any other legal recourse until the complainant approached by the police or the court.
Two days ago, Vinita Nanda in her Facebook post alleged that in 1999, she was sexually assaulted on more than one occasion and also harassed by Alok Nath, whom she did not name directly but referred to as “the most cultured person”, a quality Alok Nath is synonymous with because of the kind of characters he plays.
On Tuesday morning, another actor Sandhya Mridul on her Twitter account she twitted during a film shoot, Alok Nath misbehaved with her as well and allegedly harassed her for days. A third allegation also surfaced against Alok Nath when an unnamed crew-member from a 1998 film says that Alok Nath allegedly stripped in front of her.
Advocate Ashok Sarogi said, that “Nineteen years is a very long period of time.” In India, every person has a voice and there was no reason to wait for such a long period of time. Even now, the allegations have been made on social media but the lady has not approached the police or the court.“This itself indicates that something is being done purposely only to malign his image and nothing beyond that.”
“We will not take any legal recourse until any legal action is taken against Mr.Alok Nath but we are planning to file a civil defamation against the lady so that she doesn’t make any more defamatory statements against our client in the media,” he said.
