The 25-year-old actor reportedly hanged herself at her Juhu residence. Jiah was brought up in England and had shifted to Mumbai with her mother Rabiya recently.

"She had been depressed for some time due to personal issues, but was keen on returning to acting soon. She was also meeting filmmakers regarding projects," sources close to the actress said.

According to the police her maid, watchman and neighbours are being interrogated to find out her last visitors. Police sources said that the incident happened at about 11pm and no suicide note was found. The body has been sent to Cooper Hospital for postmortem.

Amitabh Bachchan, who heard of the news online tweeted, "-WHAT ...!!! Jiah Khan ??? what has happened ? is this correct ? unbelievable !!!"

Jiah had a fortnight back tweeted, "So sorry I have been off twitter! Took a bit of a break from twitter verse.. sometimes u need a sabbatical to recollect ur thoughts."

well i am a doctor. Not psychiatrist i am rdiologist. what i believe is that as a muslim if one is a good muslim that is strong believer of true GOD and mutaki then there is no place for depression in a muslim's life. I mean a good mutaki muslim cannot get depressed because he or she has strong belief in ALLAH. we get depressed when we r away from our islam. so stick to basics of the religeon and leave rest to ALLAH. enjoy this short life according to islam teaching and be prepared for the final day of judgement. MAY ALLAH HELP US ALL. AIMEN

Dear Yoosuf Mangalore,
Are U pointing at the usage of word actor in the article? Just in case yes, then I want to humbly say that the word' actor' is correct usage and there is no need for rectification because the contemporary English usage agrees with actor and not with the usage of the word actress. Hence it is now referred to as ACTOR in leading role Female and all actors irrespective of gender are addressed as actor only. Similar changes have been made in case of headmaster/headmistress too. They are now called just 'headteachers' and not referred on basis of gender.
Thank U

123"Then if there comes to you guidance from Me, then whoever follows My Guidance he shall neither go astray, nor shall be distressed.

124 "But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur'an nor acts on its teachings.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection."

125 He will say: "O my Lord! Why have you raised me up blind, while I had sight (before)."

126 (Allah) will say: "Like this: Our Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) came unto you, but you disregarded them (i.e. you left them, did not think deeply in them, and you turned away from them), and so this Day, you will be neglected (in the Hell-fire, away from Allah's Mercy)."
