So far the real cause of Uday Kiran’s death is unknown, though several stories are heard like lack of film opportunities, his mother’s death, his father’s second marriage, financial problems, etc. Uday Kiran’s father himself admitted that he and Uday did not speak to each other for about six years and that he doesn’t know anything about his own son’s whereabouts.
