Everyone in the industry knows how Alok Nath harasses women: Deepika Amin
Mumbai : Deepika Amin turns out to be the new name who has alleged actor Alok Nath of sexually harassing her. Mr Nath was first accused by writer-director Vinta Nanda of raping and harassing her. After Vinta, a Hum Saath Saath Hain crew member revealed how Alok stripped in front of her on the sets of the film and manhandled her. On Wednesday, Sandhya Mridul unveiled how Alok had allegedly violated her.
Deepika Amin, who recently worked with Alok Nath in a recently released movie Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, has shared her part of the story on social media. She wrote: "Everyone in the industry knows that #AlokNath is an obnoxious drunkard who harasses women. Years ago on a telefilm outdoor shoot he tried to barge into my room. He slobbered over women, drunk and created a scene. The unit rallied around me and made sure I was safe. #metoo".

A news portal (Firstpost) quoted Deepika Amin as saying, "I was young then. Alok Nath was playing my father (in the telefilm). It was an off day (on set) and everyone was in the hotel. It was morning around 10AM or so and Alok Nath knocked on my door. I opened my door and there he was standing, leaning against the door".
"He came in and sat down on the bed. I stood at the door, as I didn’t know what to do. I purposefully kept the door open as members of the unit were milling about. Then I saw an AD (assistant director), waved brightly at him, said ‘Hi’ and called him in. When he came in (to my room), he saw this person sitting on the bed, and he realised [what was going on]. He tried to help me. Alok Nath kept mumbling something (in a drunken state). And then he decided to go. While stepping out, he fell flat on his face, hit his head on the floor. He got up, lurched out and then walked away," Deepika added.
#metoo movement has become a rage on social media in last couple of days with famous women sharing horrific incidents with their co-stars.
