India’s Me Too movement led to some pretty explosive revelations as women from all sectors came out in open about their tormentors and harassers on social media. Bollywood was not spared too as Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Nana Patekar, Vivek Agnihotri, Vikas Bahl, Chetan Bhagat, Rajat Kapoor, among others were named and shamed publicly. Television industry director Vinta Nanda had a shocking account of how Alok Nath abused, raped and harassed her decades ago while she was directing him in a serial. After this, lot of other actresses came forward and confirmed Alok’s behaviour has objectionable over the years. CINTAA took an action against Alok and expelled him from the body. Their official statement read: In view of the various allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct against Mr. Alok Nath, after due diligence and consideration, the Exec. Committee of #cintaa has decided to expel him from the Association. @sushant_says @renukashahane @FIA_actors @sagaftra @RichaChadha.”
