Depressed over no roles, actor Uday Kiran ends life
Hyderabad: Apparently depressed over not getting films for nearly one year, young Telugu actor Uday Kiran committed suicide by hanging himself here Sunday night, police said Monday.
The 33-year-old, who acted in 19 films including three Tamil movies,
ended his life in his flat at Srinagar colony around midnight. He was
alone in the flat.
Kiran`s wife Vishita, who had gone out for a family party, rushed to the
flat after he did not respond to her mobile phone calls.
She immediately took him to Jubilee Hills Apollo hospital here where the doctors declared him dead.
A police officer quoted his wife and other family members as saying that
he was in deep depression for the last few days.
He refused to attend the birthday party of a relative in the city Sunday night and sent his wife for the same.
Vishita grew suspicious when he did not respond to her phone calls and
rushed to the flat where she found him hanging from the ceiling. With the
help of neighbours, she shifted him to hospital.
Kiran was depressed over not getting any new film since February last year.
Family members told police that he was in touch with a Tamil filmmaker
and was waiting for his phone call Sunday. He became depressed when he did
not get the call.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Ashok Kumar told reporters that no
suicide note was found. He said investigations were on into the cause of
Born Jan 26, 1980, Kiran began his film career with Telugu film "Chitram"
in 2000. The movie was a super hit. "Nuvvu Neenu", "Manasantha Nuvve"
and "Sriram" were some of the other popular films of the actor.
It was on Oct 24 last year that he married his long-term friend Vishita.
