The Tragic Sunset of Uday Kiran


Just thirty-three; and no more. What unbearable suffering compelled him to end his life we may never fully know. It shocks and depresses all sane people.For some, though, it’s apparently a godsend. They jump to fish in not just troubled, but agony-filled waters. They rant and file cases against the so-called ‘Big Four’ in the film industry. They have no qualms in firing at the people they hold a grudge against, be it over the shoulders of a dead body.

Life in films, as in other competitive fields, is not easy. No one can make your career long-lasting. Nor can anyone suppress it forever, however powerful he may be. Youngsters need to be encouraged to persevere against all odds; not told that someone else is responsible for their failure to reach a goal instantly. Sadly, some students commit suicide when they fail an exam. Blaming those who set a tough question paper is a self-defeating attitude. Those who foster this are the true enemies of the unfortunate youngsters they claim to support.

I can only wish that Uday Kiran’s family finds the strength to tide over this heart-breaking loss. And as for the ambulance-chasers who speak against injustice meted out to him; will even the most ardent prayers inject some sense and sensitivity into their heartless pursuit?

One thought on “The Tragic Sunset of Uday Kiran

  1. it is a sad note for Telugu film industry to start 2014.
    wish MAA initiates some steps in such cases and also cases where actors neglect
    their own health and finances.
    thanks ggrajugaru for taking time to write
