Bollywood woke up to a very bad news this morning – Jiah Khan, all of 25, committed suicide at her Juhu residence on Monday at 11 pm. Jiah was found hanging at her flat in Sagar Sangeet building in the upscale Juhu area of Northwest Mumbai.

The cause of the suicide is not yet clear, police said, adding that post-mortem reports are awaited. Apparently Jiah’s mother and sister had gone out and the actor was alone at the house when the incident occurred. No suicide note has been found. Police are questioning the domestic helps, security people and neighbours to find out what could have possibly led Jiah to take such a drastic step.

The actor, of British origin, came to Mumbai in 2006 to pursue a career in acting. She made her Bollywood debut in Ram Gopal Varma’s Nishabd opposite Amitabh Bachchan. Later she was seen in Aamir Khan’s Ghajini and Akshay Kumar’s Housefull. Jiah’s co-stars and the entire film fraternity is in a state of shock, and they expressed their sadness on Twitter right after Dia Mirza broke the news on the microblogging site.

Amitabh Bachachan: “WHAT …!!! Jiah Khan ??? what has happened ? is this correct ? unbelievable !!!(sic).”

Farah Khan: CAN’T register that jiah is no more..worked with her in Housefull n she was so beautiful n such a good soul.2 young 2 go jiah.

Ram Gopal Varma: Shocked and choked to hear about Jiah … So young and so pretty … Just cant believe that someone as young nd so full of life is just dead … Never ever seen a debutant actress with more spunk and more spirit than Jiah when i was directing her in Nishabd … No matter what her problem was I just so wish she applied her on screen philosophy of Nishabd to her own life which is to .’take lite’ … The whole unit of Nishabd was literally in love with Jiah(sic)”

Why did Jiah Khan commit suicide?

Though the actor did not leave behind a suicide note before bidding adieu to the world, early reports indicate that Jiah was not particularly happy with her career in Bollywood

jiah’s mother Rabiya Khan has also told the police that her daughter was not happy with the way her career was shaping up in Bollywood. She was upset since she couldn’t do well in an audition in Hyderabad on Sunday and told her mother that she did not feel that her career was moving forward. She was highly disturbed and wanted pursue interior designing instead.

Meanwhile Jiah’s alleged boyfriend, actor Aditya Pancholi’s son, Suraj Pancholi is also being questioned after a report revealed that Jiah was also going through a crisis in her personal life too, and apparently the last call she made was to Suraj.

At the moment it is difficult to pinpoint one reason why Jiah took that drastic step of ending her life in such a horrific manner. She has left no suicide note and police are probing her domestic help and security people to find more about the incident. The entire film fraternity is in a state of shock, trying hard to come to terms with the untimely tragic death of the young actor.

PS: Suraj Pancholi had said in an interview that his parents are friends with Jiah’s family. Aditya Pancholi, television actor Urvashi Dholakia and producer Mukesh Bhatt were spotted visiting the actor’s residence.
