Sundeep Kishan in talks to star in Uday Kiran biopic
The untitled film aims to tell the story of the departed actor, who had a meteoric rise and an almost equally dramatic fall in Telugu cinema
A biopic on Telugu cinema's hat-trick hero Uday Kiran is in the works. Actor Sundeep Kishan, who was last seen in Tenali Ramakrishna BA BL, is in talks to star in the untitled film to be directed by debutant Chandu.
Sundeep says he is very excited about the project and hopes Uday Kiran’s role suits him. "I connected with Uday Kiran’s character and liked the storyline narrated by Chandu. I have asked him to come up with a full-bound script. We will meet in the second week of December for a detailed narration. If things fall into place, I am comfortable producing it under my home banner, Venkatadri Express."
Sundeep recalls watching Uday Kiran from close quarters. "Uday Kiran was a typical Telugu boy-next-door actor and his story makes for an interesting film. I watched his journey in the industry. There is no need to delve into any controversy as there was so much drama in his life. We just need to depict it properly."
The untitled film aims to tell the story of the departed actor, who had a meteoric rise and an almost equally dramatic fall in Telugu cinema. Uday Kiran committed suicide at the age of 33 by hanging himself at his apartment in Hyderabad on January 5, 2014.
