Controversies

In October 2018, amidst India's Me too movement, Alok Nath was accused of rape by TV producer Vinta Nanda who worked with him in the TV show Tara in the mid-90s.[17][18]. Alok Nath denied the allegation.[19] Subsequently, actresses Renuka Shahane, Himani Shivpuri, Sandhya Mridul, Deepika Amin, and an anonymous Hum Saath-Saath Hain crew member have either admitted to knowing about Nath's predatory behaviour or written about instances where they themselves have been assaulted by him.[20][21][22][23]

On 15 October 2018, Nath sued Nanda for defamation, asking for a written apology and Re 1 as compensation. He has filed the case jointly with his wife Ashu Nath.[24]

On 17 October 2018, Nanda registered a complaint against Nath in Mumbai Oshiwara Police Station.[25][26]

On 1 March 2019, Mumbai Mirror reported that Alok Nath is all set to play the role of a judge in a movie based on the Me Too movement.[27]
