Alia Bhatt’s on-screen mom accuses Alok Nath of harassment

Deepika, who has also worked in Bollywood films like Fan and Ranjhaana, explained her account in detail

After Vinta Nanda, Sandhya Mridul and a crew member of Hum Saath Saath Hain, now actress Deepika Amin who starred as Alia Bhatt’s mother in ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’, has accused Alok Nath of sexual harassment.

Deepika, who recently worked with the actor in ‘Sonu Titu Ki Sweety’, shared her side of #MeToo story on her social media handles. Taking to her Twitter account, the actress narrated the incident writing,

"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."

Take a look at her tweet here:

Deepika, who has also worked in Bollywood films like Fan and Ranjhaana, explained her account in detail 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."

She further added,

"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."

It is shocking to come across so many actresses blaming Alok Nath for the same reason. What re your thoughts on the incident? Do let us know in the comments section below.
