Telly show to recreate Jiah Khan’s suicide?


After an in-the-pipeline Bollywood film, actress Jiah Khan’s suicide has now inspired a TV show. An upcoming episode of Yeh Hai Aashiqui will be loosely based on the incident.
Says a source, “The story revolves around a film actress, who, while on top of her game, falls in love with a director’s son and gets extremely possessive about him. The boy — an aspiring actor — ends up signing a film with her, but after she delivers a string of flops, replaces her with a newbie. Unlike Jiah, who took her life by hanging herself from a fan, the actress in the show will jump off the fourth floor of her building. The central characters will be played by Mihika Verma and Rithvik Dhanjani, while Bobby Darling will play her friend and business manager.”
We tried contacting producer Vikas Gupta, but he didn’t respond to our calls or text messages. Jiah was found hanging in her Juhu home in June this year. Career disappointment and an allegedly failed relationship with Aditya Pancholi’s son, Suraj, were blamed for the suicide.
