Drunk Alok jumped at me saying, 'I want you, you're mine': Sandhya

After writer-producer Vinta Nanda, actress Sandhya Mridul and another unnamed woman accused actor Alok Nath of sexual misconduct, actor Deepika Amin also levelled similar allegations against Nath on Wednesday. "#IbelieveyouVintaNanda #metoo #Timesup", she wrote. You know this to be true.

Citing that the allegations were pertaining to a 19-year-old incident, Ashok Saraogi said that the move was aimed at tarnishing Alok Nath's reputation.

I have a lot more to say. Tele-series Tara writer Nanda is the first one to break her silence against Nath.

Himani Shivpuri said she encountered first-hand an instance of Mr Nath's allegedly bad behaviour on a flight. However, he later got the channel authorities to change the storyline of the show and came back to join the series.

'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, numerous guys would also egg him on to be his worst, ' Nanda wrote, adding that he even harassed the show's lead actress, who was not interested in him. I opened the door thinking that it was him again. "My heroes, Navniit Nisshan Ameeta Nangia Grusha are such wonderful people", read her post on Facebook. "He said he was an alcoholic and that he had destroyed everything, his family, his marriage and I was like his daughter". "I haven't thought beyond it". I stepped aside, he went flying past me into the room.

Sulawesi, Indonesia - after the quake and tsunami
A string of earthquakes in Lombok in eastern Indonesia killed more than 550 people over the summer. The quake triggered a tsunami warning.

Cine And TV Artistes' Association (CINTAA) is looking into the matter closely and have stood by Vinta. "She said she can't say or do anything about it", she told the website. I continued to write the show'. "It is high time".

Citing an incident, Amyra said: "I have had an actor squeeze himself up against me during a shot in a song and whisper in my ear that he was so glad that I was in the film with him. We are planning to file a defamation suit", he said. "What I went through is nothing compared to you". "It [rape] must have happened but someone else would have done it", he said. "In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything", he added.

The #MeToo movement has spread like fire with a lot of women from the industry speaking about sexual harassment.

The woman further revealed the reason she didn't inform the makers of Hum Saath Saath Hai, about it.

The producers' organisation said it would set up an internal committee to lead this effort. And there was no social media to make ourselves heard, directly. The allegation resurfaced as the #MeToo movement garnered steam in India. Recently, a lot of such cases have come to the fore, with big names like Vikas Bahl and Rajat Kapoor being accused of harassement by women.
