Actor Uday Kiran was supposed to tie the knot with megastar Chiranjeevi’s daughter Sushmitha sometime back.
After several years, actor Uday Kiran’s sister Sridevi has finally revealed the real reason as to why the wedding with megastar Chiranjeevi‘s daughter Sushmitha was called off. According to Sridevi, it was Chiranjeevi who came up with the marriage proposal to wed his daughter to Uday, who was having a rough time post a bitter break-up.
In fact, rumours were doing the rounds that Uday Kiran’s career had gone for a toss after his marriage was called off. However, Sridevi quashed the baseless reports.
In an interview to a Telugu channel, Sridevi said, “Uday had a hit a rough patch in his personal life after the breakup with a girl he loved. He was sobbing a lot. Chiranjeevi was very supportive during his down time. He was like Uday’s Godfather. And even Uday had a lot of respect for him. Chiranjeevi advised him a lot to move on and after some time he came up with the marriage proposal saying Sushmitha liked Uday. He is a wonderful person.” She also said that Uday was suffering from depression after his break-up.
Uday Kiran was married to Vishitha in 2012. Two years later, the actor committed suicide at his residence when the latter had gone out for some work. After his death, some of his fans raised slogans against Chiranjeevi.
Uday began his film career with Telugu film Chitram in 2000. The film was a super hit at the box office. Nuvvu Neenu, Manasantha Nuvve and Sriram were some of the other popular films of the actor.
