As for the matter, if it has come out, it will be stretched.

"However, we only have to hear to women's stand because they are considered weak", he reportedly said. She posted about the incident on Facebook on Monday, writing that he had sexually abused and violated her endlessly at a party.

It was eventually decided that Nath would be let go, and when the actor learnt of it, he arrived for the shoot "drunk on our sets" and "continued to drink till the time he was called for the shot".

In the Facebook post, Nanda called the actor - popular for his roles as a stereotypical Indian father, personifying religious traditions and moral values in movies and TV shows - "alcoholic, shameless and obnoxious".

Ms. Nair also clarified that reports about CINTAA sending Mr. Nath a show-cause notice were made by Mr. Singh in a personal capacity.

When she felt that it was time to go home, she was approached by the said "man" who asked her to sit in his vehicle.

Track live forecasts of river flooding ahead of Hurricane Michael
Michael's core , with maximum sustained winds of 110 mph, was about 335 miles south of Panama City, Florida, as of 2 p.m. That's just below the threshold for a "major" hurricane, and forecasters say they still expect Michael to get stronger.

Severino, then Sabathia for Yankees in Games 3, 4
Don't forget Boston's No.3 starter , Rick Porcello, who has a 5.47 ERA in 24.2 playoff innings. "You know what the situation is". He hasn't recorded an out in the sixth inning since July 27, dogged by inflammation for the better part of the last two months.

ABP News reported that while Nath acknowledged the #MeToo movement, he said that his "image" should be left alone. Claiming that she was a good friend at one point, Alok added that "in a way" he was responsible for making Vinta who she is today.

It's taken Vinta nearly 20 years to tell her story of harassment, sexual assault and abuse that started on the sets of the hit Tv show Tara, and just about five minutes for the man who epitomised 'sanskaari' values in desi pop culture, to dismiss them. It is useless to react on the allegations as in today's world whatever a woman says, only that will be considered. The situation got so dire, she added, that the female actor even slapped him.

"When I spoke years ago, not a single person came in support of me". I shout out to each one of you who have suffered at the hands of predators to come out and say it aloud. Silence is unsafe. I became silent, due to which I had to suffer so much. What do I have to do with what they say? "When she complained to us, we made a decision to let him go", she wrote in the lengthy post.

"It will not stop now and it should not stop". It is encouraging. It is just a beginning.

Addressing women at large, Nanda said: "Please speak. It was a nervous breakdown I was going through, but I was trying to be fearless", 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". I want to take my time and decide the legal action I will take. "I became easy prey because the message had been put out that I was afraid and so I would not open my mouth", she said this while saying that it has been 20 years and now she feels liberated to talk about this.
