It’s a sad, sad day for the Bollywood community.
Actress Jiah Khan was found yesterday by her mother after having hanged herself in her room. Authorities are reporting the 25 year old’s cause of death as an apparent suicide.
According to a police source, there currently is no suspicion of foul play, though the actress did not leave a suicide note. However, authorities are interrogating Suraj Pancholi, the son of Bollywood acting couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, as he was the last person Jiah spoke to on the phone.
Several of Jiah’s Bollywood friends, as well as her fans, have spoken out about her passing, including filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, who said:
"Never ever seen a debutant actress with more spunk and more spirit than Jiah when I was directing her in Nishabd…I don't know the reason what led to this but jiah was very depressed about her career and scared for her future."
Our thoughts are with her family.
