jiah khan died

Actress Jiah Khan, who was laid to rest in Mumbai Wednesday, lived with her rescued cats, and was compassionate towards animals, according to an animal rights organisation.

She was an active supporter of PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) India, and even featured in an advertisement urging the Indian government to cut out glass-coated manja and not birds' wings. She also got into a tiny cage, all cramped up to show the plight of animals in zoos.

"Jiah was always there to help animals in distress and speak for them," Sachin Bangera, manager, Media and Celebrity Projects, PETA India, said in a statement.

"In Mumbai, she lived with her cats whom she had rescued, She would always be on the lookout for animals in distress and would work to provide them relief. Jiah was a compassionate person," added Bangera.

Twenty-five-year-old Jiah, whose real name was Nafisa, committed suicide by hanging herself Monday night, leaving her family, friends and associates shocked. She was seen in films like "Nishabd", "Ghajini" and "Housefull".

    I m surprised that ppl here shud point a finger at IF, how many of you asked about her?? IF would be guilty if her fans kept asking about her n IF did not comply. How many of you did?? You too r rip...ing her after her death. IF gives us news about the celebs we want to know about and celebs who are making news by work or otherwise...it is sad that Jiah Khan chose to make news otherwise. I have one question to ask, if she was compassionate about the animals in distress, why did she choose to ignore herself!! She should have shown compassion for her life too and towards the ppl related to her. But sadly, she is no longer there to answer these qs. Wish she had taken a step back before takin the step forward.

    thats why education is a must if u r highly educated u can earn alot of money...it happens with most of the people wht they choose as their career is not meant for them but they should not end committing suicide...youth of today's generation wants shorcuts so they quit their qualifications just to pursue modeling and acting
