Veteran actor Alok Nath has reacted to allegations of rape levelled against him by television writer and producer Vinta Nanda. In a response that might stun many, he said, “Kuch to log kahenge [People will say something] Neither am I denying this nor do I agree with it. It [rape] must have happened, but someone else would have done it. Well, I do not want to talk much about it. As for the matter, if it has come out, it will be stretched.”
The actor also sarcastically said that people only listen to the women in such matters. “However, we only have to hear the women’s stand because they are considered weak,” he said.
When asked about his image after the allegations, he said, “What do I have to do with people? People will say anything to spoil the image. Leave my image, whatever has been said, it is absurd.”
Nath also went on to to say that Nanda became a big name because of him. “At one time she used to be such a good friend. Today she said such a big thing. In a way, it was me who made her what she is. It is useless to react on the allegations as in today's world whatever a woman says, only that will be considered. In such a situation, it would be wrong to say anything,” he added.
