Mumbai: Swami Nithyanand – the name became synonymous with controversies after a series of allegations were hurled upon the self-styled godman. And Nithyanand refuses to stay out of news as he has a penchant for attracting celebs who believe the godman can rid them of their woes. After Vivek Oberoi, Juhi Chawla and Tamil actress Ranjitha, the new disciple whom Nithyanand has found is Tamil actress Kausalya.
Kausalya, who played lead roles in famous Kollywood films like Sollamale, Vaanathaippola and Priyamudan, and later turned into a character artist with Vijay’s movies Thirumalai and Santhosh Subramaniam, recently joined the spiritual leader’s ashram as a disciple.
Apparently, Kausalya was bothered by a severe back pain over the last couple of years. She is said to have tried various treatments, before her friend suggested she try the healing therapies at Nithyananda’s ashram.
“Swami Nithyananda is a well-known healer and an enlightened personality. His aura and knowledge is abounding. But just as controversies follow Brand Nithyananda in the media; glamour comes marching and rallying behind him,” remarked his publicist Dale Bhagwagar.
“However, in spite of the constant media speculations and controversy overdose, Swami Nithyananda remains almost unaffected and always smiling,” he pointed out and added, “Nothing is able to scar his mind or persona, and his legion of followers keeps growing.”
