Uday Kiran was deliberately sidelined by the top stars and producers

According to media report, a group representing Brahmins (Kiran's caste-group) alleged that two castes - Kamma and Kapu (to which a majority of Telugu heroes including the top four like Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna belong to) do not allow others to grow in the industry that produces highest number of films in the country after Hindi.

However, Telugu Movie Artists Association President Murali Mohan overruled such reports. He, however, admitted to the importance of caste in the Telugu film industry.

Mohan was quoted as saying, "Till the Telugu movie industry was based in Chennai caste was not a factor but things have changed after it moved to Hyderabad."

A lawyer, meanwhile, moved State Human Rights Commission and sought investigation into the suicide case. Arun Kumar, who filed the petition, alleged that four families were ruling the Telugu film industry and cited this as the cause for Kiran's suicide.

Kiran's wife Vishita found his body hanging in their flat in Hyderabad. She soon rushed him to Apollo Hospital at Jubilee Hills where the actor was declared brought dead.

Kiran earlier was engaged to actor-turn-politician Chiranjeevi's daughter. However, the marriage was called off due to some unknown reason(s). Later he tied the knot with his long-time friend Vishita.
