Film actor Uday Kiran’s wife Vishita told the police on Saturday that she tried contacting her husband from her friend’s birthday party using someone else’s mobile on last Sunday night, but he did not respond.
She said she could not use her phone since it was not charged. She left home in the evening that day after Uday Kiran told her that he would join her later. When he did not turn up, she called him from another mobile. When there was no response, she went home around midnight to find her husband dead.
Vishita said Uday and she were in love for nearly one and a half years before their wedding when the police sought another statement from her in connection with Uday Kiran’s death.
She told the police that Uday Kiran had financial problems, but more than that, he could not come to grips with reality after Tollywood nudged him out at a time when he was establishing himself as a hero.
