Uday reportedly ended his life due to the depression of not getting roles in films.
Born on Jan 26, 1980, the actor made his cinematic debut with Telugu romantic-drama Chitram in 2000. He went on to act in several successful films such as Nuvvu Nenu and Manasantha Nuvve.
He had also worked in Tamil films such Poi and Pen Singam.
In October last year, Uday married his longtime friend Vishita. Before that, in 2003, he was engaged to Chiranjeevi's daughter but the marriage was called off for unknown reasons.
