Even though she didn't take his name directly, it has been reported that she confirmed the name to IANS through a message stating that she thought, "sanskaari would do the needful". It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it. Nanda said she made a decision to out Nath because she was feeling guilty for having kept the incident to herself while asking others to speak up.

While Vinta hasn't named the actor directly in the post, she identifies him as a "sanskaari" actor who was the lead in Tara. "When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain".

This was after producer Vinta Nanda made stunning disclosures on she was raped and brutalised in the 90s soon after shooting the famous TV series Tara.

This was the fifth straight game Washington hasn't scored a touchdown in the third quarter, dating back to past year . It was a showing that didn't do Washington any favors as it battles through a division that is anyone's game.

"All I knew at the time was that I had to get home". I started to walk home on the empty streets although the distance to my own house was long. It is the rising voices against sexual harassment across the world as part of the #MeToo wave that gave her the courage to pen down the experiences which had left her shattered.

Vinta, a veteran writer-producer of the avant-garde 1990's show "Tara", levelled serious allegations against Bollywood's very own "sanskari babuji" Alok Nath that he had sexually harassed her nearly two decades ago. Nanda wrote that once she was invited at Alok Nath's house for a party. I empathise with Vinta for the awful pain she has gone through; it is unimaginable. "It was a nervous breakdown I was going through, but I was trying to be fearless", she wrote, "I tried to pick up the threads of my life but channels and networks and sets and rehearsals started to freak me out". One of the shows was Tara where this Sanskari lead actor would harass the lead actress. However, Alok Nath managed to get a role in her serial, due to which she asked to be relieved from directorial duties and only write the show to avoid working with him. Without naming Nath, she said she also suffered because of this man's "power trip". "I will be exploring things, I want to protect myself". "I continued to write the show", she said. "It was after this that I quit". "In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything".

She said it took her two decades to heal and she has waited 19 years to tell her story, adding that "The couple of times that I wrote about what I had gone through created more complications because I stopped getting work".
