There are lot of controversies and allegations about Swami Nithyananda and actress Ranjitha, Swami Nithyananda, who was said to be in Haridwar attending Kumba Mela, has admitted his presence in the video with actress Ranjitha.

He said that a part of the video has his presence but later on it is morphed. He said that the Scandal video has been forwarded for further research and he does not wish to make any comments before that.

Swami Paramahamsa Nithyananda said that Ranjitha and her family were his devotees since very long and Ranjitha was there with him since he was sick, looking after him.

The 33-year-old godman said he was in a state of samadhi (trance) when the video showing him in a compromising position with an actress was taken. He alleged that the media onslaught on him was without any basis and that he was being held guilty without a trial. Because of this, I am getting millions of emails, phone calls and a flood of support from people who are not even my devotees.
