25-year-old Bollywood actress Jiah Khan allegedly committed suicide on Monday night by hanging herself at her Juhu residence, police said. According to the police, her maid, watchman and neighbours are being interrogated to find out her last visitors. Jiah made her acting debut in Ram Gopal Varma's controversial movie, 'Nishabd', where she acted opposite Amitabh Bachchan.
Upon its release in March 2007, the film received mixed reviews, but Jiah was noted for her confidence, attitude, and sex appeal.
She also got a Filmfare Best Debutant Nomination.
She then appeared alongside Aamir Khan in A R Murugadoss's 'Ghajini', the Hindi remake of the director's own Tamil film of the same name.
Later she appeared as a supporting actress in Sajid Khan's multi starrer comedy film 'Housefull' (2010). This was her last film.
Jiah was brought up in England and had shifted to Mumbai recently to act in Hindi films.
Actor Dia Mirza reportedly broke the news of Jiah's death on micro blogging site Twitter.
