MORE WOMEN ACCUSE ALOK NATH
After writer-producer Vinta Nanda, actor Sandhya Mridul (above) and a crew member of the film Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999) have accused Alok Nath of sexually harassing them. The crew member told Mid-day he began stripping in front of her when she handed him a change of clothes for a night scene, manhandling her as she tried to run away. Sandhya said he entered her hotel room by force and lunged at her drunk, while shooting for a telefilm. She locked him in her room. He would also knock on her door every night. He apologised later, blaming it on alcoholism.
