The news maker Swamy Nityananda, who is allegedly involved in an extramarital relationship with noted actress Ranjitha, is likely to file a defamation lawsuit against SUN TV and Nakkeran, which aired the sex video tape on March 2 involving Nityananda and Ranjitha in compromising positions.
M. Shridhar, a Chennai-based lawyer, has been appointed to defend the Swamy’s case. Shridhar, who vehemently denied any wrongdoing on the Swamy’s part, said the defamation lawsuit would be filed against the news channel and Nityananda’s ex-driver Lenin Karupan (who shot the now infamous video) to salvage the Swamy’s reputation.
The lawyer also confirmed that Nityananda is expected to be in Bangalore soon. According to sources from his ashram, Nityananda will neither travel by plane or train, but will travel by road to evade a possible arrest or draw the attention of fellow travellers. Nityananda was last seen in public attending the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar.
