I instinctively tried to shut the door but he pushed it and lunged at me, I stepped aside he went flying past me into the room. While she forgave him eventually, she said the "damage was done" as he told others in Mumbai that Sandhya was hard to work with.

He came back to my room what ensued was traumatic because a belligerent Alok Nath refused to leave. kept screaming shouting threatening abusing trying to grab me. but at some point we managed to make him leave.

On Monday night, Vinta Nanda shared her harrowing account of being raped and violated by a man, whom she identified as the 'sanskaari' actor who played the male lead on her show Tara. In a way, it was me who made her what she is. He created an environment in which I was made to feel threatened, so I asked the producers to release me from directing the series because I didn't want to be around where he was.

The actor said the stress of dealing with the situation at hand soon caught up with her and she fell sick.

The "most hard part" and the "main reason" she took so long to come out with the truth was because while she was working on this new series, Alok asked her to come to his house again and she allowed him to violate her.

"He pulled a chair next to my bed and howled. He says he had learnt his lesson and that he would go to therapy and change it all".

This, when in a few hours that she had scenes with "Bauji". "A very disillusioned, disgraced and unsure me returned home". He laid the foundation others like him built on. Attitude my biggest crime. Post the conference, she spoke to a publication about approaching Alok Nath's wife for help.

"Alok Nath. You know this to be true".

She said she may have forgiven the actor to preserve her sanity but she will never forgive him for what "you did with Vinta". "I salute Vinta's courage; I wish I could show the same courage, but life has come way past it and I can't put my family through this". What I went through is nothing compared to you. "What Tanushree has started is admirable".
