MeToo Shocks Bollywood! Mallika Dua Joins Vinta Nanda in Accusing the'Most Sanskari Babuji of Rape

Vinta Nanda reveals shocking details of being raped by Bollywood's'sanskari actor

In a long Facebook post, she did not name the actor but virtually identified him as being "known as the most #Sanskaari (Cultured) person in the film and television industry", said that his wife was her best friend and they had been part of the same circle over the years.

The "sanskaari actor", as she calls him, was a drunkard and was pursuing the lead actress of a popular 90's TV serial Tara. She wrote, "He was an alcoholic, shameless and obnoxious, but he was also the television star of that decade, so not only was he forgiven for all his bad behaviour but numerous guys would egg him on to be his worst". "I remember being violated endlessly". "When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain".

"I started to walk home on the empty streets. It was a nervous breakdown I was going through, but I was trying to be courageous", she wrote, "I tried to pick up the threads of my life but channels and networks and sets and rehearsals started to freak me out".

She also detailed Nath's alleged misbehavior on the sets of Tara, which was launched in 1993 as one of the first Indian TV shows that focused on the journey of a modern city woman.

Manchester City’s tactics a compliment to Liverpool, says Virgil van Dijk
Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson dismissed suggestions the Premier League title race was already down to two teams. In the end, however, the teams finished just as they started, playing to a 0-0 draw to split the points.

"I was producing and writing the No 1 show on TV called Tara".

The production team had made a decision to remove him from the show, she adds. "I needed the job and didn't want to leave it as I needed the money". "It was after this that I quit", she said.

Nanda also shared that Alok Nath "brutalised" at her own residence after offering to drop her home from a party. Reacting on the accusations levelled against him, he reportedly said that he is neither denying, nor agreeing with it. It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it. He also stated that he does not want to talk much about it as for the matters if it has come out, it will be stretched. "At one time she used to be such a good friend. today she said such a big thing. All our shows went off air with immediate effect and my production company was made to shut down", she wrote. "In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything", he added. His thoughts on the current #MeToo movement in India, which prompted Vinta Nanda to speak up after all these years, were a revelation... about just what a man's perspectiive shouldn't be right now. "It is high time", she stated.
