Udai Singh I (? –1473) a.k.a. Udaikaran or Udah, was the Maharana (r. 1468–1473) of Mewar Kingdom. He was a son of Maharana Kumbha. When Rana Kumbha was offering prayers to Eklengji (Lord Siva), Udai Singh I assassinated him and proclaimed himself the ruler. In 1473 he was assassinated by his brother Raimal who became the Rana after him.He was nicknamed ‘murderer’ in chornicle's of Mewar and such was the hatred that many omitted him from the genealogies of Mewar. 
In an act of patricide, he killed his own father, Rana Kumbha, while he was offering prayers to his deity, Lord Eklingji.
Udai Singh proclaimed himself as the new king and came to power. He ruled Mewar for five years; till he was defeated by his own brother Raimal and had to flee from Mewar. He fled to Delhi and offered his daughter to the Sultan of Delhi in marital alliance in return for his support. Udai Singh was struck by lightning before the marriage and died.
No Persian historian record of any proposed alliance by made by udai to any sultan except few rajput chornicle's
This account,however is mentioned in Mewar chornicle 'Vir Vinod' by Kavi Shyamaldas,which Todd mistook for sultan of Delhi than malwa as modern historian's believe it was Sultan of Malwa Ghiyath shah,not sultan of Delhi who agreed to render assistance to Udai Singh,and in return Udai Singh agreed to give his daughter in marriage to him The proposed matrimonial alliance was aimed at establishing friendly relations between the two States. But the destiny had it otherwise. Rana Udai Singh was struck with lightning, when he was returning to his camp, after completing the negotiations, and thus the entire plan fell through and no marriage took place.Surajmal and Sahasmal, however, remained in the Malwa court and continued to press the Sultan to help them in recovering their patnmonj . Sultan Ghiyath Shah finally agreed to assist them and with his forces marched on Chittor
