Filmmaker and writer Vinta Nanda posted about an incident on her Facebook page accusing an “alcoholic” Alok Nath of raping her 19 years ago. No sooner did she reveal this, support started pouring in from all side. Speaking about the response she has been getting, she reportedly said that she is overwhelmed with the support she is getting. She also added that Tanushree Dutta has definitely has broken grass-ceiling but this has been going on from some time.
According to Vinta, if they don’t change, they will never change. Fortunately, it’s far behind in her case and the trauma is not that close as it’s to other people. She had really put herself and she felt that it’s important that young girls get a sense of confidence from that. She added that it’s a good time for women and girls and she thinks all should rally together to make sure that in future, nobody tries something that’s not respectful for women.
Here’s how celebrities in Bollywood have been applauding her courage to come out and speak about it.
Heart wrenching. 😢😢😢😢 https://t.co/myVEYDAfTu
