Ram Gopal Varma: Shocked and choked to hear about Jiah. Just cant believe that someone as young and so full of life is just dead. Never ever seen a debutant actress with more spunk and more spirit than Jiah when I was directing her in Nishabd. No matter what her problem was I just so wish she applied her on screen philosophy of Nishabd to her own life which is to 'take lite'. The whole unit of Nishabd was literally in love with Jiah. I don't know the reason what led to this but Jiah was very depressed about her career and scared for her future. Inspite of being highly appreciated in Nishabd and being a part of hugely successful Ghajini and Housefull, she had no work for the last 3 years.
