In the #MeToo movement, Alok Nath was accused of rape by writer-director Vinta Nanda. Soumik Sen, who directed Madhuri Dixit in Gulaab Gang, was also blamed for alleged inappropriate behaviour by three women.
Film and television actor Alok Nath has been issued a six-month non-cooperative directive by the Indian Film and Television Directors' Association (IFTDA) after he refused to show up for a POSH (Prevention of Sexual Harassment) inquiry.
The court said that while the screenwriter has submitted before the court that after she read about the #Metoo movement against sexual harassment in October last year, she gathered the courage to report about the incident, it added that she had not lodged the report immediately after the incident due to “her own benefit”.
Indian Film & Television Directors' Association (IFTDA), along with its mother body, Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) said they will take a decision regarding the sexual harassment charges made against Sajid Khan and Alok Nath within a week.
The next step in the probe is yet to be decided, the police said, adding that Nath has not been arrested. The legal recourse available to the actor includes applying for anticipatory bail and moving court seeking to quash the FIR.
Alok Nath, aka as the Sanskaari Baauji, is popular for essaying some of the most 'saintly' and 'cultured' characters on the silver screen. He has, in fact, immortalised the role of the ever-sacrificing father of the daughter who has reached 'marriageable age'.
New Delhi, Feb 24 (ANI): It seems like Bollywood actress and former porn star Sunny Leone has taken the pledge to help smokers kick the butt. The actress has been roped in for an anti-smoking campaign along with ‘Sanskaari Babuji’ Alok Nath and ‘Tanu weds Manu’ fame actor Deepak Dobriyal. Present at the launch of the ad in Mumbai, Sunny Leone also confessed that she herself used to smoke. The ‘Mastizaade’ star can be seen in a traditional avatar in the quirky ad and carries the look effortlessly. Talking about the bad habits, Sunny Leone also confessed that she loves hogging on junk food and this is one bad habit which she wants to get rid of. She said that smoking is not cool and instead is very disgusting. We hope, everyone is listening to Sunny.
