Pradeep Kumar's wife Pavani Reddy has finally opened up on his suicide and revealed that the Telugu actor took the drastic step over a small argument with her. Pavani, who had married Pradeep a year ago, was reportedly the last person who had a word with Kumar before his suicide. She asserted that the two had a casual dispute just like any other couple. However, she is still finding it difficult to accept the fact the Pradeep killed himself over such a minor misunderstanding.
"I had a conversation with Pradeep before he committed suicide. A small misunderstanding arose out of the conversation. Every couple faces this kind of situation. We have had even bigger disputes than this one, but he had never taken such an extreme step. His suicide was a big shock for me too as the misunderstanding was not such a big deal," Pavani told a web portal.
The actress even recalled the entire conversation she had with Pradeep hours before he committed suicide.
"I returned home from the shooting at 11.00 pm. I spoke to Pradeep about a birthday party. He was happy and attended it gladly. But he was damned tired and angry with something. He was telling me that he was suffering from a severe headache due to the hectic work. After that he started drinking a lot and I have never seen him drink so much," Reddy stated
"When Pradeep was saying something, I was attending to some other work. This led to an argument and I went inside the washroom and started crying. Pradeep knocked the door and smashed a glass pane when I did not open the door. My brother Shravan applied the medicine to his injured hand," Pavani Reddy added.
Pradeep kumar, who is known for his role in 'Saptha Matrika', was found hanging in his Hyderabad residence on Wednesday early morning.
According to the media reports, post the argument Pavani had left Pradeep alone in his room. She later went back to the room at 4:30 am to wake Kumar for an early morning shoot only to find him dead. Pradeep was soon rushed to the nearby hospital, where he was declared brought dead.
