1994 article about Navneet Nishan trying to sue Alok Nath. She was the lead of Tara & whom he used to harrass.
They might be lovers in the popular serial Tara but off-screen it's war.
Navneet Nishan, better-known as Tara, is suing Alok Nath for Rs 1 crore. It started when Nishan had a fight with costume coordinator Ashu Nath, who is also Alok's spouse. This brought Alok into the ring, allegedly misbehaving with Nishan on the set.
But the real red rag was Alok describing her as a drug user in an interview to Movie magazine.
Explodes Nishan: "This is absolutely fabricated. It's taken me eight years to get where I am and I don't want some alcoholic fool to mess it up for me." And she refused to act with him.
However, the serial makers, currently shooting the 140th episode, say they are not in a fix. Rumour has it they had shot a death scene with Alok but script-writer Vinta Nanda denies it: "The characters they play had been separated anyway. So real life is following reel life and we will keep them apart."
So, happy ending: death won't do them part, but scripting will.
