Name: Ms. Jiah Khan
Date of Birth: 20 Feb 1988
Passed Away On: 03 Jun 2013
Address: Mumbai, Maharashtra
British-American Actress Jiah Khan had a relatively short-lived career in Bollywood. Having debuted with none other than Amitabh Bachchan as the leading lady at the age of 18, Jiah then would go on to act with some of the biggest names of Bollywood viz. Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar.
Jiah Khan was born on 20 February 1988, New York into an American Musim family of Ali Rizvi Khan and Rabia Amin who herself was a Hindi Actress of 80s. After finishing her studies in art and literature from MPW London she was then admitted into Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in Manhattan only to leave it midway to embark on acting career in Bollywood.
She made her professional debut with Ram Gopal Verma’s directional venture “Nishabd” for which she was nominated to Flimfare Best Female Award. In 2008 she was seen alongside Aamir Khan and Asin in Ghajini which set the cash registers ringing. In the following years she starred in “Housefull” alongside Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmukh, Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta.
An actress who took everyone by surprise through her bold portrayal of ‘Jiah” with her very first film, could not go on to further bolster her professional career as she committed suicide on 3 June 2013 over an alleged fallout of her relationship with another newcomer, Suraj Pancholi.
