Bollywood actress Jiah Khan, who made a striking debut opposite superstar Amitabh Bachchan in Ramgopal Varma's Nishabd, is believed to have committed suicide by hanging herself with a piece of cloth, at her Indian apartment at Sagar Tarang in Juhu, Mumbai.

The 25-year-old actress who was brought up in England, had also starred opposite Aamir Khan in Ghajini and Akshay Kumar in Housefull.

While her body has been shifted for postmortem at Cooper Hospital in Juhu, the Mumbai Police is investigating reasons that would have led to her demise. They are learnt to have searched her residence and recorded statements of her housemaid, building security guard and her neighbours.

Jiah Khan's death follows the same pattern of supermodels and actresses Nafisa Joseph and Viveka Babajee who committed suicide in the same gruesome fashion by hanging themselves.

Similar to Viveka's case, where her 'lover' Gautam Vora was said to be the last person to have visited her, the Police is now tracking leads about who would have visited Jiah Khan's residence before her demise.

This is so deeply sad. I so wish girls would kick the boys that cause them heartbreak out of their lives rather than take their lives.Value yourself girls please! Careers also must not break fact be like a phoenix...and rise again and again!

My prayers are with her family. May her soul rest in peace.

I hope this comes as a wake up call to the bollywood industry. It's not easy being an actress in such a cut throat business. She commented that she felt like a failure. She wasn't a failure By any means. She was a beautiful, talented young girl, who made it to the film industry upon her own merits. I just wish someone had reached out to her before it was too late.

This is such sad news - Jiah was so talented, and had so much of her life ahead of her. I hope that she rests in peace, and I hope her close ones get the strength to deal with such a loss.
