Telugu actor Uday Kiran committed suicide by hanging himself in his flat at Srinagar colony, Punjagutta here on Sunday night, the police said on Monday.

Kiran’s wife Vishita and neighbours rushed him to Apollo hospital at Jubilee Hills after finding his body hanging to the ceiling in a room late on Sunday night. Doctors of the hospital declared him brought dead.

Kiran was born on January 26, 1980. The 33-year-old actor got married to his long time friend Vishita on October 24, 2012 and ended his life 20 days ahead of his 34th birthday.

The actor was alone in his flat on Sunday night. His wife had gone to Manikonda on some personal work. She grew suspicious as Kiran was not responding to her mobile phone calls and rushed home only to find him dead.

Popular for his romantic roles in Telugu films, the actor made debut with Telugu film Chitram directed by Teja in 2000. The film became a smashing success. Some more blockbuster movies such as Nuvvu Neenu, Manasantha Nuvve and Sriram made him one of the most popular and promising stars in his early 20s.

He got engaged to the daughter of mega star and Union Minister Chiranjeevi in 2003. The proposed marriage was cancelled eventually. Kiran continued his career in films but could not secure successful films.

Tollywood heroes, directors and musicians rushed to the hospital to pay homage to the actor. Actor Srikanth expressing his shock over Kiran’s death said that the police should ascertain causes that compelled him to resort to the extreme step.

Music director Patnaik expressed his heartfelt condolences.
