The actress filed a complaint with the Kerala police after photos of her went viral on social media. The arrested person, Kiran Kumar, is a production executive who was once friends with the actress.

According to the report, Kiran Kumar hid his marriage from Mythili and befriended her, which the actress got to know later and ended the relationship with him.
Kiran Kumar starting threatening Mythili for money with these photos and said would ‘leak’ the photos online if she failed to give him the money. Mythili ignored his threat, and Kiran Kumar went ahead and posted the photos on social media which have now gone viral.
