Soon the lead pair changed to Preetha and Pandiarajan. Unfortunately, this project did not reach the post-production stage and resulted in being shelved. In the second half of 1998, C.

As fate would have this, this project too did not reach the end of production. The next film Love Pannunga Sir which starred Livingston did not progress even after being announced in January 1999. His consequent project called Vandharu Jeicharu, also failed to reach the theatres.

Ranganathan decided to step back a little and look towards an alternative to Tamil cinema. After deliberation and discussion, he decided to try something different and moved away from cinema and more towards television industry to try his hand on television shows and serials. He began working with K. Bhagyaraj, and the collaboration resulted in the making of Vilakku Vacha Nerathula, which was a Tamil soap Opera and aired on Kalaignar TV.

The show began airing in the year 2009 and starred actors like Sanjeev, Delhi Kumar among others. In the year 2014 C. Ranganathan worked as an actor in the movie Lingaa where he portrayed the character of a security guard. In 2015, this acting streak continued as C.

Ranganathan made appearances in two films, namely Nayyapudai and Mudinja Ivana Pudi.
