Just after rumours about the self-styled godman being part of Bigg Boss 6 broke out; it was widely misreported that he has been accused of rape by popular Tamil actress Ranjitha.
A report from Press Trust of India (PTI) stated, “Swami Nithyananda was in news after southern actress Ranjitha accused him of raping her more than 40 times.”
But the godman’s spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar was quick to react, “Its amusing how misconceptions chase Brand Nithyananda. Ranjitha is actually a disciple of the Swami and has NOT accused him of anything at all.”
When asked about the reports about Nithyananda’s appearance on India’s biggest reality show Bigg Boss, Bhagwagar held onto his earlier stance, saying, “I’ve been told, the godman has been approached earlier, but it’s too early to confirm or deny.”
