In the heat of #MeToo movement filmmaker Vinita Nanda shared a heart-wrenching account and accused actor Alok Nath of sexually molesting girls and raping her. Mahesh Bhatt, who is a close friend of Vinita heard this case and immediately responded on it, he said: "She is a friend. I am quite devastated. We have sat down and she has spoken about her personal issues, financial issues, and her relationship problems and never brought this out. What was it that was keeping her.”
Vinita shared a harrowing story on Facebook, she did not name the predator but the details she shared made everyone guess the criminal. Mahesh Bhatt had worked with Vinita on the sets of hit serial Kabhie Kabhie that aired in 1997. He added: "By saying 'Why are you saying it now?' I am not doubting her. I am saying, 'Why didn't you tell me?' When Mallika Sherawat said somewhere that she was being solicited by men when she was working, I said 'Why didn't you tell me. You should come and tell me everything about what's happening."
Mahesh Bhatt’s wife Soni Razdan also responded on this case, she commented: "Oh Vinta Nanda, so sorry you had to deal with this all alone so many years ago. Can anything be done? What is unacceptable is the fact that the channel did nothing to protect the girl in question amounting to the most abject callousness on its part. Things really need to change."
When Alok Nath was asked about the case, he gave the most hysterical reply, he said: "Neither I am denying this nor do I would agree with it. It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it. Well, I do not want to talk much about it as for the matter if it has come out, it will be stretched. We only have to hear to women's stand because they are considered weak."
