Jiah Khan Bio/Wiki 2018

Most people dream of beauty and popularity. Most folks tend not to understand that beauty and popularity will not bring you happiness and contentment. Her family was of the Muslim religion. They lived in New York City when their daughter came to be. Her dad was an American citizen of Indian ancestry. His name was Ali Rizvi Khan. Her mom was Rabiya Amin. Rabiya was from Agra, Uttar Pradesh. During the 80s she’d worked as a Hindi movie performer. When Jiah was a little child she moved to London where she spent the bulk of her youth. She studied her craft at the Lee Strassberg Theater and Film Institute found in Manhattan for a brief time. She once said that after she saw Ram Gopal Vermas former protégé Urmila Matondar in the film Rangeela she was inspired to visit Bollywood. Jiah was just six at the time that she viewed this picture. Jiah was assumed to have her movie debut when she turned 16. She was cast in the movie Tumsa Nahin Dekha by Mukesh Bhatt. The director and the young performer both believed the character was much too mature for her to impersonate and she backed from the deal. Jiah Khan is the name she picked to play under until 2012 when she changed her name back to Nafisa Khan. She’d eventually make her debut two years later at the age of 18. She was cast in the movie Nishabad by Ram Gopal Verma. Her mom and sister returned to the house they shared with the performer to find that she’d committed suicide by hanging. Her sister found the suicide note left by Jiah and the family has supplied a copy of the note to the authorities investigating the issue. It’d seem; according to some that Jiah was distraught over an intimate relationship and stopped her life. No one will ever be sure of the reason she determined this was the course of action she should take because to commit suicide a man must be emotionally distraught to the point where their decision making procedure isn’t trusted. Our hearts go out to the friends and family this wonderful young lady left behind
