As this #MeToo campaign is piling up, the accusations of harassment are also not stopping against veteran actor Alok Nath. The actor usually used to play father character in movies now has been on the target of women who accused him of sexually harassing them.  After Vinta Nanda and Sandhya Mridul, actor Deepika Amin has come forward with her tale of harassment at the hands of the said actor. Deepika Amin recently appeared in the movie Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. 

Taking to Twitter, Deepika wrote how during an outdoor shoot of a telefilm, early in her career, Alok tried to barge into her room. 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. #metoo.”

She also 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. 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 behavior. 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.”

On October 8, writer-director Vinta Nanda wrote a long post detailing how she was raped 19 years ago by Alok while she was on her way back from a party. On Wednesday, actor Sandhya shared her story from her early days as an actor when she was attacked by a drunk Alok while on an outdoor shoot.
