Also read | TV writer-producer on Alok Nath's reaction to sexual assault allegation: Do you think he will admit? As per the recent developments in the case, Vinta Nanda has spoken to the media about the allegations. During the Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing in the US Senate, Dr Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of assault when they were teenagers, was repeatedly asked "how can she remember something that happened decades ago".

Nanada went on to write that her drink was mixed with sedative during the party and she began to feel 'strange.' "As the evening flowed, my drinks were mixed and I began to feel odd". In a way, it was me who made her what she is.

In a statement to NDTV, she said, "I support every woman and man who is standing up for herself/himself in the #MeToo movement".

Nanda has claimed that the actor called her to his house and allegedly "violated" her.

She goes on to allege that the actor was harassing the female lead of the show and how he "would mess" with her while everyone on the set was "silent". She added that she also suffered because of this man's "power trip" but made it stop by slapping him eventually.

She then says that her drinks were mixed and she was quite drunk and was walking back home when Alok offered to drop her home.

"I was completely shattered by then", Nanda said. She said that despite being traumatised by the experience, she found work writing and directing a TV serial for another channel. "You should come and tell me everything about what's happening".

"However, we only have to hear to women's stand because they are considered weak". While Alok Nath, in an interview with a news channel, had given a rather ridiculous response to these alllegations, the female lead of "Tara" that Nanda spoke about, Navneet Nishan, has chosen to speak up in support of Nanda.

The actress slapped him and he was asked to leave the set as he could not be a part of the show any longer.

Consequently, Nath was dropped from the show.

Following very serious allegations on Nana Patekar, Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, among others, the Film & Television Producers Guild of India is forming a committee to look into the matter and provide possible help to the victims. Soon after, the show was shut down completely.

Nishan said she empathises with the "terrible pain" Nanda has gone through.

"What followed because of my silence was even worse".

"I had friends who rallied around me and helped me clean up and restart my life in 2009, which meant that I had lived my trauma for 10 long years. I became easy prey because the message had been put out that I was afraid and so I would not open my mouth", she said. "Social media also saved me", she added.
