The aftermath of the sex scandal involving Swami Nityananda has even touched Mani Ratnam’s ambitious project Raavana. It is now confirmed that Tamil film star Ranjitha, who was allegedly filmed in a compromising position with Swami Nityananda, is playing a role in the Tamil version of the bilingual Raavana.
After the controversy hit national headlines, Ranjitha went underground and a shocked Mani Ratnam was for a moment faced with the dilemma of re-shooting her portions with another actress or going ahead with Ranjitha. Eventually, he opted for the latter.
Ranjitha plays the role of Raavana’s sister-in-law in the Tamil version. South Indian superstar Vikram plays the title role in the Tamil version, while he has done Ram’s role in the Hindi version.
Ranjitha has come under the spotlight after it emerged that rather than being a victim of the sting operation, she was allegedly the one who released the sex tapes with Swami Nityananda in public.
Sources in the Tamil film industry say that Ranjitha, a mother of two, fell in love with Swami Nityananda and they shared an intimate relationship. But apparently Ranjitha turned vengeful when Nityananda not only refused to marry her but allegedly also started seeing other women. - Mumbai Mirror, Mumbai, April 6, 2010
