Alok Nath was first accused by veteran writer and producer Vinta Nanda of sexually harassing her not just once but on multiple occasions. Taking courage, several other actresses like Himani Shivpuri, Sandhya Mridul and Deepika Amin opened up about their harrowing experiences with Nath.


And now; interestingly it has been reported that in a feature film directed by Nasir Khan, the ‘sansakaari babuji' of Bollywood will be playing a judge who will take a strong stand against sexual harassment. The film is titled #MainBhi and at the moment features Khalid Siddiqui, Shawar Ali, Imran Khan along with Sonali Raut who will play the female lead of the film. 


Speaking about the same; Nath was quoted by a leading daily saying," I'm not doing any films at the moment. This was something I shot for a while ago.... Is there a problem? You sound sad that I'm doing a film. It's a puny role for poor producers, let it release."

Highlighting the relevance of the film; Khalid was quoted saying," The film deals with child molestation, a subject that hasn't been tapped on screen often, particularly with regard to boys. My character, along with the other, are affected by incidents that change our lives. We hope the film starts a debate on the subject." 


For the uninitiated; Cine and TV Artistes Association (CINTAA) had expelled Nath in November 2018 after he failed to appear for its meeting, but later his wife Ashu sued Nanda and the actor eventually got anticipatory bail.
