Vinta Nanda Puzzled By 6-Month Ban On Alok Nath

Vinta Nanda is not impressed by  the  6-month ban  imposed  on her alleged rapist Alok Nathby  the Federation Of  Western India Cine Employees(FWICE).

Says Nanda, “I don’t know what Six Month Non-Cooperation Directive exactly means but I’m grateful to Ashoke Pandit and his team, which heard my case, for having taken a step forward. I have faith in my entertainment industry.”

 She feels the  endeavour to  get  legal redress  for sexual offences  is an uphill  task for women in  the entertainment  industry. “I’m a nobody like most other people also are and to make a position for yourself in the creative space for a nobody is very very hard, especially if you’re a woman. I don’t think anybody other than whose been through it knows how much and what you have to negotiate to be noticed here. The courage and confidence required is immeasurable. So if your courage as well as confidence is attacked you’re left with nothing to live with but fear as your companion.”

 However  Vinta doesn’t want  to undermine  the efforts  of  film producers’  organizations  to  restrain alleged  sex offenders. “I know it isn’t easy for Ashoke and his team to deal with my case. I know how tough it must have been for them to even arrive at this decision. Therefore I must thank him and respect all involved with this decision.”

As per  Ashoke Pandit  the  chief adviser  of  FWICE,  “It’s a ban by the FWICE which means all 24 crafts of films & TV will not work with him. So the Producers who want to cast him cannot do so for six months.”
