Actor Uday Kiran’s suicide has led to various speculations among those trying to unearth the reasons for his taking the extreme step. It was widely suspected that his inability to manage financial matters led to the tragedy.

On Wednesday, investigators have gone a step closer to confirm that it was indeed financial issues that led to the suicide.

It is learnt Uday’s personal manager Munna, on the pretext of making a movie with Uday in the lead, collected over `30 lakh and disappeared about a year ago.

This had become a huge financial burden for Uday as those who had given the money started pressuring the actor, forcing him to stay at home for the last four months resulting in depression. Police reportedly took Munna into custody for questioning on Wednesday.

The 33-year old actor, once the heartthrob of teenage girls, is learnt to have discussed the issue with wife Vishista, who advised him to approach the police. Uday reportedly refused to lodge a complaint fearing that it would become a controversy and affect his career further.

“Uday Kiran approached a few close friends in Telugu film industry and sought their intervention. Some did not take it seriously, while others were hesitant to meet the actor. Uday Kiran had his worst moments ahead of suicide”, sources added.

The Police who received preliminary postmortem report of the actor and questioned the family members are likely to close the case as suicide. While the police are looking into the role of Munna, Uday Kiran’s family members have not come forward to lodge a complaint against him yet. The actor committed suicide at his rented flat in Jyothi Homes, Srinagar Colony.
