The Me Too movement began after actress Tanushree Dutta filed a complaint against actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss back in 2008. Post this, a number of women came forward with their stories of harassment. Among them, 90s producer and writer, Vinta Nanda accused senior actor Alok Nath of raping her and sexually harassing her when they were shooting for the show Tara

Post this, she lodged a complaint with the police against the actor. Also, a number of film and television associations sent Alok Nath notices seeking an explanation on the same. Amidst all this, Alok Nath filed a defamation suit against Vinta Nanda and denied all charges on him. Later, when he learnt about the police complaint, he appealed in the sessions court for anticipatory bail. That bail plea has been deferred by the sessions court today. According to ANI, “Writer Vinta Nanda rape case: Order in Alok Nath's anticipatory bail plea has been deferred till 31 December by Dindoshi Sessions Court as dictation of the order was not completed.”

Amidst all the buzz, the veteran actor had been expelled from CINTAA after the case was registered against him under section 376 of Indian Penal Code. Vinta Nanda had broken her silence in a heart-wrenching post on Facebook about what had happened 19 years ago with her. Post this, a number of other women came out with their stories and the Me Too movement gained momentum in the nation.
