'Jiah Khan was a happy soul'
Voices from Bollywood on the late actress Jiah Khan
Siddharth Jain: The producer had signed Jiah for a three-film contract. He says, “It’s shocking to hear about her. We were planning to work together. Since the last seven-eight months, she seemed aloof and wasn’t around. I wish I knew what was bothering her. Also, not known widely, she was very emotional apart from being sensitive and kind.
Aamir Khan: The actor shared screen space with Jiah in Ghajini. He says, “I am deeply pained to hear this very tragic news. Jiah is a close family friend and I can only imagine what grief her mother and her family must be going through. I wish I had known that she was troubled and needed help.”
Chunky Pandey: The actor, who worked with Jiah in Housefull, says, “She was so much fun. We shot our portions in Italy and Macau and she was game for all kind of improvisations. She was a very happy soul, always laughing and I still can’t believe what happened to her. In fact, I recently bumped into her and she looked very confident and happy.”
Amitabh Bachchan: @SrBachchan
“WHAT ...!!! Jiah Khan ??? what has happened ? is this correct ? unbelievable !!!”
Ram Gopal Varma: @RGVzoomin
I dont 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 nd being a part of hugely successful Ghazni and Houseful she had no work for the last 3 years.. The last time I met her jiah told me that everyone around her makes her feel like a failure just Cant believe this girl died.
