The #MeToo movement in Bollywood will go down in history as a bitter memory. Many prominent names including Subhash Ghai, Vikas Bahl, Alok Nath, Sajid Khan and Nana Patekar were accused of sexual allegations. Though some managed to escape from the accusations, others had to pay heavy prices for their deeds. While filmmakers and their names were removed from the credits of their upcoming releases, actors like Alok Nath were expelled from CINTAA. However, the movement that was embraced and hugely appreciated soon took a backseat and today the only discussion we have about it is in our minds. While the horrific detailings still continue to give us goosebumps, accused are back leading their normal lives. The classic example being Alok Nath. Rape-Accused Alok Nath Gets Six-Month Non-Cooperation Directive by FWICE in Vinta Nanda Case.

Vinta Nanda and Alok Nath's case was one of the most discussed ones in the entire #MeToo movement. And while a case was registered under his name, the sessions court had granted an anticipatory bill to him. What's worse? He has already bagged a movie on the #MeToo movement. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, he'll play a judge who has a strong take on sexual harassment. Yes, irony at its best. When the tabloid contacted the actor to get his confirmation, he replied saying he has no new projects in his hand currently. "Is there a problem? You sound sad that I’m doing a film. It’s a puny role for poor producers, let it release,” he said. Actor Khalid Siddiqui who plays one of the lead roles in the movie revealed details about Nath's role. He told the tabloid that Alok Nath would give a speech at the end on how molestation is wrong. Alok Nath May Have Been Falsely Enroped in Rape Case: Mumbai Court.

Meanwhile, Tanushree Dutta, who's tagged as the torchbearer of #MeToo movement in Bollywood is gearing up for her own web series on the same issue. The series is about the same movement and she plays someone who's like a guarding angel to all the victims.
