Jiah Khan left all of Bollywood shocked early this morning as news of her suicide broke out. Amitabh Bachchan, Ram Gopal Varma and many other celebs have taken to Twitter to condole her death.
The actress whom we haven't seen for a while on the big screen, is said to have taken her life late on Monday night. Her mother who went for a stroll returned to find the house locked and no reply from Jiah. When the cops arrived, the door was broken down to find Jiah hanging.
On interrogation, it has been reported that Jiah's mom revealed that the actress had been auditioning for roles down South but nothing satisfactory had come of it, and as a result may have been depressed.
It's hard to reconcile this sad piece of news with the joyful pictures that the Twitter-buff Jiah had put up. Here's a look at Jiah, who in the last couple of months wished to go by her given name Nafisa Khan, in happier times.
