Though Uddhav was very calculating in his approach, certain discrepancies crept between him and one of the erstwhile Shiv Sena leaders, Narayan Rane and resulted in Narayan Rane being expelled from Party. Uddhav suffered yet another blow when he broke – up with his cousin, Raj Thackeray on various grounds of disagreements.
His cousin, Raj quit the Shiv Sena in 2006 and established his own political party, known as the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena or the MNS. Uddhav had a narrow brush with death in July 16, 2012 when he suffered severe bouts of chest pain. He was rushed to the prestigious Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai following this and had to go through an angioplasty.

At 55 years of age and having suffered heart problems, Uddhav still goes strong and has his life partner in Rashmi Thackeray. He is a Hindu and also has two children, named Tejas and Aditya Thackeray.
