Now Sandhya Mridul alleges sexual harassment at the hands of Alok Nath

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Actor Sandhya Mridul has opened up about her alleged sexual harassment at the hands of Alok Nath during the shooting of a telefilm, days after writer-producer Vinta Nanda accused him of rape. The actor, best known for her work in 1990-2000's TV shows such as ‘Banegi Apni Baat’, ‘Swabhimaan’ and ‘Koshish’, shared details of her harrowing story in a lengthy Twitter note, saying the incident took place in the beginning of her career and shattered her confidence in the profession.

Mridul said despite being the victim of Nath's overtures, it was she who suffered because he spread lies about her being a difficult person to work with. Nath essayed the role of her on-screen father, while late Reema Lagoo played her mother in the telefilm which was being shot in Kodaikanal.

The actor said one day when the shoot wrapped early the cast went out for dinner and it was then that the senior actor got “progressively drunk” and things went downhill from there. “...He 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.”
