His wife Deepa Narayan, whom he married in 1985, is a singer, and the two recorded an album together titled Dil Deewana. There was a big controversy surrounding his marriage as an woman, named Ranjana Jha, from Bihar claimed that she is Udit's first wife. Finally, he accepted her as his wife, whom he had earlier refused to acknowledge as his spouse. It was a “working arrangement” under which Deepa Narayan, Udit’s another wife, and son’s status would remain unchanged but Ranjana would also be accorded the status of the singer’s wife. The agreement was reached with the consent of Ranjana.
