Ranjitha Breaks Her Silence : 'It's Not Me in Sex Tape'
April 30 (DC): After almost two months Tamil actress Ranjitha, who allegedly featured in the controversial videotape with Nithyananda, on Thursday broke her silence and denied that she was the one shown in the tape with the tainted godman. Ranjitha has also sent legal notices to Internet and video giants Google and Youtube asking them to remove all the video clippings of the tape from their websites in the next 72 hours failing which she will file criminal and civil suits against them. She has also rebutted claims in a section of the press that she had deposed before the Karnataka Criminal Investigation Department or given interviews after the videotape was aired on March 2.
Her lawyer — Prashant Mendiratta — told this newspaper from Delhi that he has served legal notices to Google and Youtube through fax and courier on Thursday.
“We have asked them to remove the controversial video clippings from the websites by May 2, failing which we will file charges against them under the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act,” said Mendiratta.
He said the videotape was shot with a “body double” of Ranjitha. “My client is not a devotee of Nithyananda but has met him. The allegations that she has signed the non-disclosure agreements are false and malicious. It is not Ranjitha in the tape. The entire tape is edited and will not stand as evidence in a court of law. The entire controversy has devastated her,” said the lawyer.
Regarding Nithyananda’s alleged statement that it was Ranjitha in the tape, Mendiratta said, “If Nithyananda is not in the tape how can he vouch for the lady in it?”
Ranjitha may also file a defamation case against Lenin — the former devotee of Nithyananda — who lodged a complaint against his guru. On her whereabouts, he said that she was in a “safe” place with her family.
