Things are getting difficult for actor Alok Nath by the day as one by one woman are opening about the harassment they had to go through because of the senior actor. After Vinta Nanda and a crew member of Hum Saath Saath Hain, now actress Sandhya Mridul,who has been a part of number of Bollywood films including Force, Ragini MMS 2 and Angry Indian Godesses, has accused the actor of sexual harassment. In an interaction with HuffPost, the actress shared her ordeal and gave detailed account about the incidents which traumatised her. In the opening paragraphs of her account, Sandhya recalled the time when she was shooting for telefilm with late Reema Lagoo and Alok Nath and how she was impressed with this babuji.
However her thoughts about the actor changed over night when, "Till one night after an early pack up. The cast went out for dinner. At dinner he got progressively drunk and started insisting I sit with him and that I belonged to him and other stuff that I don't clearly remember but it made me very nervous and uncomfortable. My co-star realised what was happening and got me out of there." Sandhya said. She went on to describe what happened after they returned to the hotel saying, "We went back to the hotel without dinner. It was late and I was back in my room and the costume dada came to my room to give me my clothes for the next day as I had a very early call time. Few minutes after he left there was a knock on my door I opened the door thinking it was him again .. it was an inebriated Alok Nath I instinctively tried to shut the door but he pushed it and lunged at me, I stepped aside he went flying past me into the room .. I fell back toward the bathroom door he lunged at me again screaming I want you you're mine .. I dodged again he went into the bathroom and I think I latched the loo door and ran out of my room down the corridor into the lobby. Fortunately, my DoP was there making a call from the reception."
"He came back to my room what ensued was traumatic because a belligerent Alok Nath refused to leave.. kept screaming shouting threatening abusing trying to grab me.. but at some point we managed to make him leave. The hairdresser was called and made to sleep in my room I was so shaken up," she added. Even after all this he did not stop and continued harassing her with calling her no. of times in the night. Elaborating on the same she stated, "It didn't stop there .. every evening he would drink and every night calls were made to my room. I dreaded the ring.. I had to keep it off the hook most of the times. But then he would come calling. It was a catch 22 situation. I had the hairdresser moved in to my room permanently. I was a nervous wreck."
How horrifying and sad this is?! Wonder how the actor would react to this allegations.
