Alok Nath's lawyer on 10 October termed allegations of rape and harassment against the actor by writer-director Vinta Nanda as "false", saying it was an attempt to "purposely to malign his image".

In an interview with Mid-Day, the woman recounted her horrific experience during the last schedule of the film in Mumbai. "He was extremely close to the Barjatyas, and Sooraj sir would have taken it badly", added the victim. The actress who has worked in several Bollywood movies including Force, Ragini MMS 2, and Angry Indian Godesses, said that while shooting for telefilm with late Reema Lagoo, and Alok Nath and how she was impressed with this baubji (Alok Nath).

It has to be recalled that Alok had made a few shocking statements like "they need to hear woman's stand as they are weak", "it is him who made her what's she is", "a single person isn't involved - either it's a ghost or another human being", and "it is a fragment of a certain imagination". The cast went out for dinner. My co-star realised what was happening and got me out of there.

Sandhya went on to describe the ordeal, "We went back to the hotel without dinner". It was late and I was back in my room and the costume dada came to my room to give me my clothes for the next day as I had a very early call time. I fell back toward the bathroom door he lunged at me again screaming I want you you're mine. When I tried to run out, he grabbed my hand and manhandled me. She said that no sooner had she reached her room, Nath knocked at her door in an inebriated condition. "I remember yanking my hand out of his grip and rushing out of the room".

The torture continued nearly every night as Nath allegedly kept calling her every night and would scream outside her room in the event that she kept the phone off the hook. I dreaded the ring. It was for the first time in my life, that my world had been taken over and I was flooded with calls and messages, many from unknown quarters, which I just couldn't ignore. She said she was so scared that she moved the hairdresser in her room permanently.

In a Facebook post, Nanda alleged that Nath raped her and harassed Tara's female lead.
