Veteran actor Alok Nath, who has been accused of rape and sexual harassment by writer-producer Vinta Nanda has granted anticipatory bail by the Dindoshi Sessions Court.
The actor who had gone into hiding after Vinta registered a complaint against him has finally breaks his silence on the matter.
“The honourable court and my lawyers have advised me to keep completely silent for now. In fact I’ve been quiet throughout. Maybe, some words escaped my mouth in my state of angst. But otherwise I’ve been lying absolutely low for the last three months,” IANS quoted Alok as saying.

“It is not right for me to make any comment at the moment. But yes, we (Alok and his team of lawyers) got anticipatory bail, and we’re very grateful for that. Now, when I am in a position to speak I will have a heart-to-heart with you,” he stated.
He did however speak about his wife Ashu, who has stood by him throughout, calling her his pillar of strength.
“She has been a pillar of strength for me. I am grateful to God that in my journey she has been my co-traveller throughout. She has been with me always. And my truth is her truth, and that’s God’s truth. So I am grateful to God for that,” he said.
Alok says his next legal move would depend on the court order.
“I cannot preempt anything right now. But one thing I can tell you. This battle will reach its logical conclusion, and the truth, whatever it is, will be revealed,” he added.
