“MeToo isn’t a moment. It’s a movement, a galvanisation,” Harnidh Kaur, a writer who has tweeted actively through this wave of #MeToo, often to share anonymous accounts of sexual harassment, told Quartz. “There’s a strong cabal of women supporting and protecting each other and it’s about time.”

Meanwhile, the storm continues to roil Bollywood. Just days after allegations surfaced against director Vikas Bahl and actor Rajat Kapoor, another big name has been outed.

Writer and showrunner Vinta Nanda has accused a veteran actor of having violently raped and brutalised her around 20 years ago. Taking cognisance, industry body Cine And TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) today (Oct. 09) tweeted saying that the actor, now believed to be Alok Nath, would be sent a show-cause notice to explain why he should not be expelled.

Reacting to the allegations, Nath told a news channel:

Neither I am denying this nor I would agree with it. It (rape) must have happened, but someone else would have done it.
