Vinta Nanda files police complaint against Alok Nath

Alok Nath

Mumbai, Oct 17: Writer-producer Vinta Nanda on Wednesday filed a police complaint against actor Alok Nath, whom she has accused of sexually violating her 19 years ago.

The complaint was lodged at the Oshiwara police station, Nanda said in a statement.

“The police was very co-operative and they took my statement. It was not easy for me to give my statement as it is like reliving your pain. We have given a written complaint against Alok Nath and they registered the same,” Nanda said, adding that she gave her statement to a female police sub-inspector.

Amid the #MeToo movement that got sparked in India after Tanushree Dutta renewed a decade-old allegation against Nana Patekar, Nanda of “Tara” fame came out about her unsavoury experience with Alok, who has for years enjoyed a holier than thou image on-screen.

Several others also came out about their experiences with Alok, leading film and television associations like CINTAA (Cine and Television Artistes Association) and IFTDA (Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association) to send him notices.

Alok had rejected IFTDA’s notice on the ground that no police complaint had been filed against him. Instead, he filed a civil defamation suit against Nanda, demanding a written apology and compensation of one rupee.

Nanda’s lawyer had said on Monday that her client will remain undaunted in her fight against the sexual violation she faced even if defamation suits come her way.

Jacqueline Fernandez

Genda phool, sung by Badshah and Payal Dev, has garnered over 550 million views on YouTube, and actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who stars in its music video, is happy.

The song ran into controversy upon release in March when charges of plagiarism rose. The song draws its hook line from a classic Bengali folk song, “Boro loker biti lo”, and social media was quick to notice that fact. Badshah later contacted Ratan Kahar, creator of the Bengali original, in an effort to sort things up.

The video features random shots of Durga Puja festivities, and Jacqueline is seen in a sari that is worn the traditional Bengali way in some scenes.

“I am extremely happy and grateful that people have showered so much love towards the song. We crossed 550 million views recently and it’s insane. I had so much fun shooting this song. It was a different experience as genre was unexplored for me. The whole process was super exciting, from wearing a Bengali attire that I had never donned to experiencing the touch of folk music and overall, the vibe with its beats,” said Jacqueline.

“It was lovely to see the fan videos as well as the fans recreating the looks and making dance covers on it. I am so happy that we could entertain everyone with this track during the lockdown”, she added.The song also has Pahari and Gujarati versions.
