Nine Months after the alleged sex scandal involving her with self-styled godman Swami Nithyananda broke out, actress Ranjitha made her first public appearance on December 30, 2010 (Friday) and denied she was the woman in the much-hyped video, contrary to Nithyananda’s admission to Karnataka CID interrogators in April 2010 that during her stay at his Bidadi ashram for more than a year, he ‘had sex with her many times’.
Claiming that she had been made a scapegoat because she was a celebrity, the actress said she had started visiting the Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam on the outskirts of Bangalore a little over a year ago after she was impressed by the yoga, meditation and other spiritual activities taking place in the ashram.

However, the very next day, the actress attended the 34th birthday of Nithyananda on January 1st, 2011 Saturday. She also took part in Anandotsava programme, held as part of the birthday celebrations, and showed Karpoora Aarathi to Nithyananda who was dressed up like God Perumal. (See the Picture).
Recently Ranjitha is said to have moved into a new apartment in Chennai, T.Nagar. Though she could manage to hide herself inside the room during the day time in the beginning, few residents located her indeed. Following that the neighbours of Ranjitha’s new rental residence have strongly opposed her for staying there and compelling her to vacate the house immediately.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, a resident said, “Yes. We have requested Ranjitha to Vocate the house immediately as the residents of the apartment are reputed family women and her stay may create unwanted problems”.
