The sudden demise of Bollywood actress Jiah Khan aka Nafisa Khan has left the entire industry in a shock. The news that Jiah Khan committed suicide came as a surprise to all. Not only Bollywood but celebrities from the television industry too are mourning her death.

The young actress made her debut with the legendary star Amitabh Bachchan in 'Nishabd', when she was just 18 years old. Jiah was later seen playing a pivotal role with the Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan in Ghajini. The talented girl that Jiah was, she also got noted in her third and last movie Housefull in 2010.  

Television actor Pawan Shankar, who was last seen in Sony TV's Kya Huaa Tera Vaada expressed his grief over Jiah's death. Pawan says, "Jiah Khan was a family friend. I know her mother Rabia for quite a long time. In fact, she was the first friend I made when I came down to Mumbai looking for work. So, our family shares a good bond together."

Talking about Jiah, Pawan says, "I met Jiah when she came from London to make her career in the acting field. She was pretty young at that time.  The news that she ended her life is really heart-breaking. Just imagine the amount of pain her mother would be going through, who lost a daughter who was just 25."

Pawan Shankar, who shares a good bond with Jiah's family, was present during Jiah's post-mortem examination, when the family needed much support. Pawan also said that he would be present for the funeral ceremony.

He further added, "Every actor should be familiar with the pros and cons of this profession. If it brings you in the lime-light, it will also bring you a phase when the voices around attempt to tear you down. One should be aware of all the circumstances, as acting is meant for those who cannot live without it. To maintain a financial equilibrium, one should resort to an alternative medium."

While concluding, Pawan Shankar said that he feels Mumbai is a scary place, where people get lonely very soon. It's the addiction to fame and money that takes a toll on life. "This world is a beautiful place to live in. So one should just enjoy work and then explore life" he concludes.

May Jiah's soul Rest in Peace!

I wish people could be more understanding and helpful to those suffering from depression especially in a industry like TV and films. The nature of these works are mentally demanding and not everyone is strong. To suffer in silence and to take's one life, she must have in pain so much. I just wish she could have had someone to help her get through that dark moment. RIP
