Tollywood dialogue writer and director Rajasimha Tadinada, who is known for his work in films like RudhramadeviBommarilu and others, was hospitalised in Mumbai on Thursday.

According to reports, Rajasimha had attempted suicide by consuming sleeping pills because of depression. Several media reports suggested that the reason for his depression was that he wasn’t getting work in the film industry.

However, in a video uploaded by YouTube channels, Rajasimha has issued a clarification stating that he was hospitalised because of some issues he developed as a diabetic. The writer has added that nobody needs to worry about his health.

“I’m fine now. Thank you to all those who were concerned about me. I will return to Hyderabad in three days and come and meet you all,” he says.

Rajasimha Tadinada has written the script and dialogues for around 40 films, including the Anushka Shetty starrer Rudhramadevi. His other well-known films are Anaganaga O Dheerudu, Boni, Kalidasu, Bommarillu and Shankar Dada MBBS. However, his debut as director with Okka Ammayi Thappa turned into a damp squib as the film flopped at the box office.

Rajasimha forayed into Sandalwood as a writer and penned the script for director Navneeth’s psychological thriller Bakasura, starring Rohitt and Kannada Crazy Star Ravichandran. He is also venturing into the Tamil film industry with cinematographer Natarajan Subramaniam’s film.
