Bollywood actress Jiah Khan has allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself at her residence in Mumbai, police said. The 25-year old actress reportedly hanged herself at her Juhu residence on late Monday night.

According to the police, her maid, watchman and neighbours are being interrogated to find out her last visitors. Jiah made her acting debut in Ram Gopal Varma's controversial film 'Nishabd' in which she acted opposite Amitabh Bachchan. Upon its release in March 2007, the film received mixed reviews, but Jiah was noted for her confidence, attitude, and sex appeal.

She also got a Filmfare Best Debutant Nomination. She then appeared alongside Aamir Khan in AR Murugadoss's 'Ghajini', the Hindi remake of the director's own Tamil film of the same name. Later she appeared as a supporting actress in Sajid Khan's multi starrer comedy film 'Housefull' (2010). This was her last film.
