Jiah Khan's untimely death shocks film fraternity
The sultry beauty Jiah Khan who made a debut on silver screen with Amitabh Bachchan, presented a picture of rebellion, sex appeal and confidence. After Ram Gopal Verma's Nishabd, she was branded as the next best thing to happen to Bollywood. But her untimely demise, that too by reportedly hanging herself once again tells us that life is unpredictable and that people whose lives look perfect might have a different story to tell.

The 25-year-old actress, also known as Nafisa Khan was found hanging from the ceiling in her Juhu house, Sangeet. She was born and bought up in London and came to Mumbai for a career in Bollywood. She was initially chosen to debut in Mukesh Bhatt's film 'Tumsa Nahin Dekha 'at the age of 16. She backed out as she felt that the role was too mature for her but two years later in 2007, she did Nishabd, which instantly put her on the Bollywood map.

The film received mixed reviews but the actor came across as a gutsy lady and landed a similar role in Aamir Khan-starrer Ghajini. Later, she also worked with Akshay Kumar in Houseful. Not many of her fans know that she was formally trained in classical opera and five other forms of dance such as belly dancing, lambada, salsa, jazz, reggae, and Kathak.

Though the reason behind her death is not known yet, but police suspect it is a case of suicide. The incident happened when her mother and sister were not in the house, and they found her on coming back. Her mother is too shocked to comment on the incident but people from the film industry have taken to Twitter to express their condolences. Many are shocked, some are sad and some are asking the inevitable question: why?

Sympathising with the deceased, Shiv Aroor, Deputy Editor of Headlines Today, tweeted, “Sincerely hope sanctimonious fools judging Jiah Khan now, never find themselves in a position where suicide seems like the sweetest release.”

Sources close to the actress said, “She had been depressed for some time due to personal issues, but was keen on returning to acting soon. She was also meeting filmmakers regarding projects.”

Amitabh Bachchan, with whom she had done her first film Nishabd was shocked. “WHAT ...!!! Jiah Khan ??? what has happened ? is this correct ? Unbelievable!!!” Bachchan tweeted. Other celebrities prayed for the peace of her soul.
