Bollywood actress Jiah Khan was found dead at her residence last night around 11 pm.  The actress whose real name was Nafisa Khan, was reportedly depressed about her career and love life.

The body of 25-year-old Jiah Khan, was discovered on Monday evening at her home in Mumbai. She shared her house with her sister and mother, who reportedly found her body hanging.

Police are investigating and hoping to get answers after the post-mortem test reports arrive. Although an investigation is currently underway, Indian media suggests the reason Jiah took her life was due to a failed relationship with Suraj Pancholi, whom she had dated last year. The actress was supposedly heartbroken and wasn’t too happy with her career either.

Khan was the daughter of Indian-American Ali Rizvi Khan, and and Rabiya Amin a Hindi film actress from the 1980s. According to her website, Ms Khan was born in New York but the family moved to Chelsea area of London. She later returned to New York at 17 to study at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

Khan’s Bollywood debut came in 2007  in the  controversial film Nishabd, based on the Vladimir Nabokov’s novel Lolita.

RIP Jiah.
