Did young Tollywood actor Uday Kiran attempt suicide earlier?
Though police said they had no such information, it is learnt the depressed actor reportedly attempted suicide in his rented apartment a few months ago.
Ever since, Uday Kiran’s alleged suicide attempt in his bedroom, his wife Vishitha began spending more time with him and used to be in constant touch over mobile phone when she is away.
On Sunday night too, when Uday Kiran did not answer her call, Vishitha, who was away, suspected something wrong and asked her parents to go to her flat. On her return home, she noticed the body hanging from the ceiling and called the 108 emergency medical service and Banjara Hills police.
Uday Kiran was supposed to accompany Vishitha to a birthday party at the house of a close friend of Vishitha in the city. He, however, managed to convince his wife to attend the party alone.
When Vishitha left, her father Govind Rajan and mother kept company with Uday at the flat, watching a movie on the TV.
Minutes after Govind Rajan and his wife left for their home in Manikonda, the actor took the extreme step.
Govind Rajan said there were no disputes between Vishitha and Uday Kiran. “He was worried over his career due to lack of film offers,” said Rajan.
It is learnt that the actor’s father VVK Murthy is living along with his second wife separately after the actor got married to Vishitha. The young actor, who got married against Murthy’s wishes, had a rift with him over property.
Finally, the body of the actor was shifted to his rented house in Srinagar colony. The Movie Artistes Association (MAA) will shift the body to its office for paying condolences. Later, the final rites will be held at Erragadda graveyard on Tuesday.
Cops Told to Probe Actor’s Suicide
Hyderabad: A practicing advocate on Monday filed a petition before the AP Human Rights Commission seeking investigation into Tollywood actor Uday Kiran’s suicide. However, the Commission advised the petitioner to approach the police. It directed the police to investigate the issue. PN Arun Kumar filed the petition alleging that the actor was cheated by the Telugu film industry and faced discrimination by a section of producers and actors. The state government gives incentives to the Telugu film industry for making good movies. However, a section of people control the industry, he said. Uday Kiran faced problems in Tollywood and was depressed due to financial problems.
