In an unforeseen incident, a woman had allegedly tried to immolate herself in front of Tamil actor Ajith Kumar's house on Monday evening. The woman was stopped by the people who were at the spot and the incident was reported in the nearby police station, with authorities rushing to the venue and arresting her. The unfortunate incident has left many shocked as a video has gone viral on social media showing the woman trying to set herself on fire while shouting that she had lost her job because of actor Ajith. 

According to reports, the woman has been identified to be a nurse named Farzana, who was earlier dismissed from her job for taking videos of Ajith and his wife Shalini during their visit to a private hospital last year. It is being stated that she had requested for financial help from Ajith and asked the actor and Shalini in getting her job back. However, Farzana is said to have had a few other issues with the hospital management and the help was denied. Reports further say the woman had lost her job after she sent an email to Ajith requesting to meet him in person. 

Actor Ajith is yet to respond to the woman's allegations and an official statement is meanwhile awaited for a proper clarification. On the work front, Ajith will next be seen in the action film, Valimai, directed by H. Vinoth under Boney Kapoor's Bayview Projects LLP banner. Featuring music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, the film has been announced for a Pongal 2022 theatrical release, with the makers releasing a first glimpse video sometime back, which has received a huge response.
