#MeToo: “Your Time Is Up,” Actress Sandhya Mridul Calls Out Aloknath On Twitter

After writer-director Vinta Nanda came opened up on the harassment and misconduct she faced in the hands of Aloknath, actress Sandhya Mridul has accused the actor of similar charges through a lengthy post on Twitter. Sandhya Mridul, known for her work in TV series such as  Swabhimaan and Koshish, and recently in the film Angry Young Goddesses describes how she was thrilled to be cast in a telefilm with Alok Nath. But she clearly wasn’t prepared for the way things would unfold soon after. Shooting for the telefilm began in Kodaikanal, and Alok Nath soon revealed his alcohol-fuelled side.

Sandhya Mridul’s full post much like Vinta Nanda’s, it is deeply detailed. She writes of how Alok Nath would try and force his way into her hotel room where, lunging and screaming, “I want you, you are mine.” When she would lock the door after a struggle, he would call her on the phone. Desperate, Ms Mridul had her hairdresser move into her room with her and could barely shoot. She also reveals how, one day, Mr Nath allegedly confessed to having ruined his life and family by drinking to excess and promised to go into therapy.

Ms Mridul recalls her co-star, the late Reema Lagoo, who played her mother, and others on the unit helping her through the traumatic period. But was shocked to find on her return to Mumbai that Alok Nath had allegedly spread the word that she was difficult to work with – something Vinta Nanda says he did with her as well.

In the end, she puts out a stern note: “Mr Alok Nath, you know this to be true. As do few others. I stand by you Vinta. What I went through is nothing compared to you. More power to you. To us all. I am certain there are others. I urge you to come forward. Your time is up sir.”
