With the MeToo movement that has taken over the country, particularly the Hindi film industry, another prominent name has come out and spoken about her horrific and terrifying experience back in the day during her acting career. We are talking about none other than Soni Razdan, mother of Alia Bhatt and a prominent actor back in the 80’s and early 90’s.
In one of her recent interviews, she narrated an incident when someone tried to rape her but didn’t succeed. She said, “Like there was an incident that happened to me when I was on a film shoot and somebody tried to rape me, for example, that kind of thing. Luckily they didn’t succeed. You know the only reason I never said anything at that time and it sounds really odd maybe but I realised if I would have opened my mouth that person would have gone through a lot of problems. He had a family, small children. And at that time I said, ok, nothing really happened, I managed to control it but obviously I never spoke to that person again. I did not, not talk about it because of any shame or anything like that. I felt that I would be hurting his family, whom I knew.”
When asked about Alok Nath and Vinta Nanda’s allegations against the actor, Razdan stated, “I have seen him behave very very, I would say lecherously after he has been drunk. Even at one time, I wouldn’t say he made a pass at me but I didn’t like the way he was looking at me.”
That’s truly some shocking revelations!
