The nation got shocked in 2010 when a video circulated, featuring controversial godman Swami Nityananda with a woman. That woman is none other than Tamil actress Ranjitha. This videotape was splashed across television channels down South. Later, Swami Nithyananda and Ranjitha claimed that the video was morphed and headed to court to demand an investigation. However, The Forensic Sciences Laboratory in Bengaluru confirmed that the video had not been tampered with, but Swami Nithyananda denied the decision and challenged the findings.
But now, according to the latest reports, the central forensic lab has also confirmed that it was indeed Swami Nithyananda and Ranjitha who are in the video. Who is Ranjitha? Let us tell you about her in detail:
She was born as Sreevalli, she was given the name Ranjitha by National Award-winning director P Bharathiraja. She made her debut in the South film industry with the 1992 film Nadodi Thendral. She has worked in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada films with top actors. She won many awards in the field of acting.
In the year 2000, she married an Army major. But unfortunately, Ranjitha and Rakesh’s marriage ended in 2007. The actress was back in the spotlight after the sex scandal with Swami Nithyananda, when Sun TV telecast a clip of the two in an amorous state. Now, after all that sex scandal buzz, she is leading the life as a Sannyasin at the self-styled godman’s ashram on the outskirts of Bangalore.
