Vinta in a post on her Facebook account has alleged the lead actor of the soap opera of sexually exploiting her back then. Reacting on the accusations levelled against him, he reportedly said that he is neither denying, nor agreeing with it.
When asked whether this will affect his image amongst the audience, Alok Nath added, "What do I have to do with people?"
"He was an alcoholic, shameless and obnoxious but he was also the television star of that decade, so not only was he forgiven for all his bad behaviour, numerous guys would also egg him on to be his worst", Nanda wrote, adding that he even harassed the show's lead actress who was not interested in him. I started to walk home on the empty streets although the distance to my own house was long.
"All I knew at the time was that I had to get home". "When I woke up the next afternoon, I was in pain. Well, I do not want to talk much about it as for the matter if it has come out, it will be stretched", he told ABP News. "It was after this that I quit", she said. "It was a nervous breakdown I was going through, but I was trying to be courageous", 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".
Navneen also added that she stands behind any woman or man who is calling out these harassers and sexual predators under the #MeToo movement. She said, "I was invited to a party to this man's house, his wife, my best friend was out of town". Vinta wrote about how the actor known for his love for alcohol would regularly harass the leading lady of the popular soap, Tara Navneet Nishan. She said in her post that he even got her sacked when she complained.
The actor also finds it useless to react to such allegations as in today's time whatever a woman says, only that will be considered true and it would be wrong to say anything. "We asked him to leave the sets and told him that he was not going to be on the show any longer".
The spark is actress Tanushree Dutta, who in a recent interview accused well-known Bollywood actor Nana Patekar of inappropriate behaviour on a film set 10 years ago. Agnihotri's lawyer denied the "frivolous" claims.
