We are still unable to come in terms with the bitter reality of young actress Jiah Khan's sudden demise. Khan, who hanged herself to death on Monday night, will always be loved and remembered by her fans. And, as for her family, it would be toughest phase of life for Jiah's mother and sister.
The reason behind Jiah Khan's decision to take up the extreme step still remains a mystery. While a few reports say that Jiah couldn't cope up with her failed Bollywood career, a few other reports say that Jiah was majorly disturbed due to her affair with Sooraj Pancholi. Whatsoever the reason might be, Jiah will always be missed by her fans and her loved ones.
Born as Nafisa Khan, Jiah made her debut with the film Nishabd, opposite to Amitabh Bachchan. Jiah's mother Rabia Amin too was an actress, who acted in films like Dulha Bikta Hai, Ankush, Locket, Vijay Anand's Hum Rahe Na Hum and Subhash Ghai's Meri Jung in a special appearance with Anil Kapoor.
In the past, Jiah had revealed her strained relationship with her father, who had supposedly deserted her mother. She had also said that her step-father too left her mother and her sisters. Hence, Jiah did not really share a good relationship with her dad. She's more of a mommy's girl.
