Is it possible to modify "any" object in a thread which has not created it?
As we know that if the objects are UI controls, then attempting this would throw an error stating "Control accessed from a thread other than the thread it was created on"

Yes, you just have to be aware of the rules and the process involved. If you google that error message, you'll find all kinds of examples about how to do it.

Won't it throw similar kind of error? I am confused because objects other than UI controls dont have InvokeRequired property.

you can access and update objects in different threads. it wouldn't throw an exception for other objects other than UI controls(its a validation imposed on such objects). the only thing would be you have to make sure there is no concurrent update on the object state because you will need to handle those scenarios to prevent data corruption.
There are a bunch of ways provided by .net to make your classes thread safe. the simplest one would be locking ...

hope this shed some light ...
