After filmmaker Vinta Nanda opened up about being assaulted by Alok Nath, two more women - actor Sandhya Mirdul and a female crew member of Hum Saath Saath Hain - have come forward to allege that the Indian actor sexually harassed them as well.

Another antonymous woman had alleged that Nath "stripped" in from of her during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain.

Traumatised and shocked by the incident, the woman added that she refrained from reporting the incident to Sooraj Barjatya. She addressed media on Tuesday with regard to the same and claimed that Alok Nath should be scared because he can not get away from what he did to her and also to his lead actress Navneet Nishan while working on a serial, Tara.

But, in an overnight her thoughts about him was changed.

She continued, "I am glad CINTAA is taking action against him". There was this person who came for room service and he started masturbating in front of me. "My co-star realised what was happening and got me out of there", Mridul added. Deepika Deshpande (film and television actress) had mentioned about this to me when we were doing 9 Malabar Hill together sometime in the late '90s.

"She shared that Alok Nath later showed up at her hotel room door: ".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. I fell backwards towards the bathroom door he lunged at me again screaming I want you you're mine.I dodged again. When I tried to run out, he grabbed my hand and manhandled me. She claimed Nath traumatised her with calls every night after the incident.

She recounts how during an outdoor shoot for a telefilm Nath tried to barge into her room.

The woman added that she then remembers yanking her hand out of his hold and rushing out of the room. Elaborating on the same she stated, "It didn't stop there. every evening he would drink and every night calls were made to my room". I dreaded the ring. Post this, I called my Antakshari assistant Ashwini to come up to the room and stay with me. It was a catch 22 situation. "It has taken me years to lay those demons to rest and move on", said Sandhya. "I was a nervous wreck". Vinta Nanda, shared an harrowing experience of being raped by Alok Nath. He said he'd be going on therapy for it and Sandhya believed him as she "had to" and recalls her struggle at completing the shoot on the show for the remaining period and thanked the members of the cast and Reema Lagoo for supporting her during the time.

The lady didn't take up the matter with the Barjatyas, the makers, also known for their "Sanskaari" image, "I was shell-shocked; I couldn't muster the courage to speak up against him".
