To a question regarding Jagadish being served a bank notice recently and whether that could have been the cause, he said, “No, it has no connection with this. That issue has been there for some time now. Business issues are different.”

Shreyas also rejected “misleading reports” that the death was due to cardiac arrest. He said, “On getting to know, he was immediately rushed to the hospital this morning...he had attempted suicide by hanging.”

Jagadish's death to be investigated, says police

Police said investigations are on and all due process will be followed. Indian Express reported DCP (North) Saidulu Adavath saying that Jagadish’s wife had filed a complaint. “We are investigating the case from all angles. Recently, his mother-in-law passed away and he was depressed because he was attached to her. He was also under medication for stress,” he told the media.

Jagadish, who also owned a pub in the city, was also a builder and businessman along with being a film producer. According to reports, the pub was recently involved in a controversy following late night partying by some film personalities and crew, resulting in a temporary cancellation of its licence. Jagadish has produced several films including Snehitaru, Appu and Pappu, Mast Maja Maadi and Ramleela.
