RIP, Jiah Khan!

Jiah Khan may not have risen to the heights of superstardom, the girl nonetheless had the distinct honour of working with some great actors in her short Bollywood career.

25 is too short an age to snuff one’s life out. Jiah Khan, who was found hanging at her flat in Sagar Sangeet Building in the posh Juhu area of northwest Mumbai around Monday midnight, has bid adieu from this world prematurely, leaving Bollywood in shock and disbelief.

Though the reason of her suicide is yet to be officially confirmed, people close to Jiah Khan say she was depressed about her career going nowhere. In the last six years, she worked in only three films, and had the leading role in just one.

Here’s a brief life sketch of the girl who told us to “Take Light” in her very first film. There was as much boldness and mystery to her as vivacity.

Jiah Khan was born in New York in 1988 to an Indian American father and a small-time Hindi actress mom. She was christened Nafisa Khan. She grew up abroad, and also joined the Lee Strasberg Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, but she quit it mid-way to pursue Bollywood dreams.

She was just sixteen when Mukesh Bhatt sought her to play the lead role in his 2004 production Tumsa Nahin Dekha opposite Emraan Hashmi. But she backed out, paving the way for Dia Mirza to step in.

It was in 2006 that Nafisa got her first Bollywood break with Ram Gopal Varma’s Nishabd which released in 2007. She changed her name to Jiah Khan and embarked on a promising career. What happened thereafter? What went wrong? Read on ahead.
