Thats why I wont do Uday Kirans biopic: Teja

Director Teja became a celebrity back in the early 2000s when 'Chitram' released.  Along with him, because of this very film, Uday Kiran became the talk of the town as a debutant hero who scored a blockbuster at a young age. Teja accidentally roped the same actor for his second film, 'Nuvvu Nenu', after failing to do it with Madhavan.  This time, again, the Teja-Uday Kiran duo struct gold at the BO.  It was a silver jubilee blockbuster.  Uday Kiran now started to become a youth icon for being a star without any film background, much like Chiranjeevi and Ravi Teja had been.  

Uday Kiran's career soon fell apart after his films started failing continuously from 2003-04 or so.  In 2014, the youngster committed suicide, leaving his admirers shocked and devastated.  Since then, there have been speculations that this or that director will make a biopic on his life.

Teja's name has been written in this context.  However, the 'Nene Raju Nene Mantri' director has categorically said that he will not make a biopic on Uday Kiran even though he knows all about his life.  "He used to confide in me about his personal life.  Yet, I won't make a film on him, as I don't want to cash in on his miseries," Teja has been quoted as saying.
