Rumours were rife Uday Kiran's acting career in Telugu Film Industry was in a freefall after he called off the wedding, which allegedly irked Megastar Chiranjeevi. Uday was engaged to Chiru's eldest daughter Sushmitha. However, Uday called off the wedding later. There were several protests and criticism against Chiranjeevi and mega family citing main force behind Uday Kiran’s sudden downfall which eventually led to his suicide. Now years later, Uday Kiran’s sister Sridevi, who is now settled in Muscat, Oman, revealed the actual reason as to why Uday Kiran’s wedding with Sushmitha was called off. She said that it was entirely Uday’s decision to cancel the marriage after the engagement as he thought that both will be a mismatch for some reasons.
Sridevi rubbished the rumour by saying that it’s unfair to find fault with Chiranjeevi and his family. Chiranjeevi was supportive to Uday Kiran during his down time. He was like Uday’s Godfather and even Uday had a lot of respect for him. Chiru is a wonderful person. She requested everyone to stop the false propaganda. She also added that her brother Uday Kiran was not happy after marrying Vishita and blamed her that she didn’t even talk to them after her brother’s untimely demise.
