"Irony is that the man, the predator in question here is the actor par excellence who is known as the most #Sanskaari (cultured) person in the film and television industry", Nanda added in the post.
Later, confirming the same to IANS via SMS, Nanda said: "It is Alok Nath".
"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 said in the post.
She alleged that after he found out that the team was thinking of dropping him for his obnoxious behaviour, Nath came to the sets drunk. "When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain". I started to walk home on the empty streets although the distance to my own house was long. She says her drinks were mixed. The screenwriter of the 90s popular show - Tara - in a long FB post wrote about how the veteran actor had abused her. However, Alok Nath managed to get a role in her serial, due to which she asked to be relieved from directorial duties and only write the show to avoid working with him. "I will be exploring things, I want to protect myself". "It was after this that I quit". Reacting on the accusations levelled against him, he reportedly said that he is neither denying, nor agreeing with it. It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it (sic).
"I want someone who did that to me to be punished but I am not saying anything right now as I don't know what I am going to do next. I couldn't get up for my bed (sic).", she concluded.
The actor also finds it useless to react to such allegations as in today's time whatever a woman says, only that will be considered true and it would be wrong to say anything.
In what is being seen as India's #MeToo movement, several other celebrities like Vikas Bahl, Nana Patekar, Rajat Kapoor, AIB comedians Gursimran Khamba and Utsav Chakraborty have also been accused and Nath acknowledged that Nanda's claims are a result of this movement.
