Sandhya Mridul described how Alok Nath, known for his ‘sanskaari’ roles, would get drunk on set and harass her night after night.
Two days after writer-producer Vinta Nanda’s charges, now actress Sandhya Mridul has accused Alok Nath of forcing himself on her.
Film and TV actor Alok Nath has been accused by another industry insider for sexual harassment and bad behavior.
Alok Nath’s screen daughter Renuka Shahane thanks her stars. “My God! I am so glad I wasn’t on any outdoor with him ever,” says Shahane.

She Said: “We were shooting for a night scene and I had taken a change of costumes to him. Once I handed him the clothes, he started stripping in front of me. I was taken aback, and tried to make my way out of the room as soon as possible. When I tried to run out, he grabbed my hand and manhandled me. I remember yanking my hand out of his grip and rushing out of the room,”
The 43-year-old actress shared a detailed account of the incident on Twitter in which she wrote that an inebriated Nath had made untoward advances on the sets of ‘Koshish’ where he was the lead. While she did not specify the exact year of the incident.
Sandhya said that on the shoot what was to begin in a few hours, she had a few scenes with “babuji” and in one she had to sit on his lap and cry. “I still feel nauseous when I think of it (sic),” she said.
I finally broke my silence I screamed shouted cried and it was done. I believed him. I had to. He left. He got away. I don’t know how I shot with him for the remaining days and weeks.
I’m grateful to my co-actors, my DOP & especially the late Reema Lagoo for finally taking him on & protecting me like a mother from then on.
