The #MeToo movement in India has taken a storm after Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutt accused Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleasss in 2008.
More and more women stepping up and sharing their horrifying experiences. Till now, several other prominent personalities from the industry including Rohit Roy, Subhash Ghai, Alok Nath, Kailash Kher, Vikas Bahl, Chetan Bhagat, Rajat Kapoor have been accused of sexual harassment.
The latest name adding to the list of the accusers is Mallika Dua’s father and acclaimed journalist Vinod Dua. In a detailed Facebook post, filmmaker Nishtha Jain accused Vinod of sexual harassment.
Nishtha has accused Vinod of sexually harassing her in June 1989, when Nishtha had met Vinod for a job interview. Besides telling her a lewd sexual joke, he asked her, “Tumhari aukat kya hai?” (What is your worth?) when Nishtha quoted her salary expectations. Then Nishtha got a job elsewhere but Vinod found out from his friends and encountered her at the parking lot of her office. He then slobbered all over her face and for several days stalked her before giving up.
