Indian actress Jiah Khan’s mother found the actress hanged in her room in what authorities called an apparent suicide. She was 25.
A police source in Mumbai tells Reuters that there was no suicide note, and the case is not being treated as suspicious, though they are presently questioning Suraj Pancholi, the son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, with whom Khan last spoke on the phone.
Khan, whose real name was Nafisa Khan, was born in New York and grew up in London before moving to Mumbai to pursue acting full time.
In addition to Nishabd, the young actress also had supporting roles in 2008 psychological thriller Ghajini and comedy Housefull in 2010. Housefull would ultimately be her last film.
