Jiah Khan's suicide and pressures in Bollywood
Jiah Khan's sudden death has raised uncomfortable questions on Bollywood as people are once again talking about the pressure cooker atmosphere, celebrities have to experience. After it was learnt that 25-year-old ended her life because of a failed loved relationship and inability to make rapid progress in her career, celebrities want people to take on challenges and not to give up.

Her first co-star Amitabh Bachchan was quite disturbed with the news of her death. “Win can be elusive agree .. but what is wrong with being second or third ! How many others get to 2nd and 3rd positions!!” Bachchan tweeted.

He also tweeted, “There are pitfalls and rejections in every one’s life ..tell me one human that has been devoid of this ? But we must fight it and win.”

Sushmita Sen, after getting the news also wrote, “2 (to) commit suicide is 2 (to) give in 2 (to) a moment of madness, where one is beyond hopeless n too tired n weak to share. NOBODY shud(should) give in like that.”

Answering a raging question about the industry’s pressures and frustrations, Madhuri Dixit told NNIS, “There is an ugly side not only to the industry but also to life itself. There has to be a sense of balance, which we are losing slowly and becoming very extreme.”

Defending the industry, Neha Dhupia said, “There is pressure everywhere. We are living in a world that doesn't promise you anything on a platter. We never know what has actually happened.”

Even Juhi Chawla said that people have images about celebrities and she is seen as this jovial person, always smiling but she has had her share of heartbreaks. Jiah Khan went away at a very young age and she may never know but a lot of people loved her and will miss her. It's a shame no one told her that when she was still alive and asked her to fight harder.
