She has been identified as Farzana, and was accompanied by another woman when they reached Thala Ajith’s house on Monday after her previous failed attempt. She was again stopped by the police officials posted at the actor’s house.
It is reported that she used to work as a nurse at a private hospital near Teynampet. She was then dismissed from her job after she shot and uploaded a video of Thala Ajith and his wife Shalini on social media when they had visited the hospital last year.
After the video went viral on the internet, the hospital management decided to relieve her of her duties for breaking employment rules.
Farzana had then reportedly approached the actor’s wife to help her get back her job. However, they refused to do so since the hospital management apparently had other issues with her as well.

Both the women were detained post the incident. However, no case was registered against them.
