Many of the people who have worked with the senior actor Alok Nath, have accused him of se*ual misconduct!
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, the producer Vinta Nanda accused the senior actor Alok Nath of se*ual harassment. And since then, many others have come out in her support making several shocking revelations on the actor.
This time it is the actress Himani Shivpuri who has talked about the actor’s behaviour which used to disturb everyone around him. She told PTI, “Whenever we shot in daytime, he (Alok Nath) would be mild and normal but after having liquor he used to be this Jekyll and Hyde person. He used to change completely. I heard from actresses that they had a tough time working with him.”
While Alok Nath had been known as the ‘sanskari bapuji’ before all these allegations, Himani says that the sanskari image was a media creation. She said, “Media it seems was ill-informed about his image. Everybody knows what kind of a person is. Some things are open secret in the industry.”
Narrating a few incidents from the past, she added on further as she said, “While we were in Dubai once for ITA awards, he had consumed liquor and his wife was worried and was disturbed with his behaviour as he was drunk. He was also once caught peeing in open and was deplaned from a flight as he had misbehaved on the flight.”
Himani even confessed that well known and important people have tried to take advantage of her or have misbehaved. And maybe at some point, she will come out with her #MeToo story.
She appreciated Tanushree Dutta and Vinta Nanda for speaking up after so many years. “When Tanushree spoke about it, she was thrown out of the industry ten years ago. It is the women who get targeted because the society will point fingers at them. Woman is a victim you should not blame her,” said Himani.
