MUMBAI: Actress Jiah Khan, who hanged herself from the ceiling of her Juhu apartment between 11 pm and 11.30 pm on Monday night, had made her last call to Suraj Pancholi, son of Aditya Pancholi.
Police questioned Suraj Pancholi about the last call which Jiah Khan made at about 10.53 pm before ending her life. Suraj was called to the Juhu police station.
The 25-year-old actress was close to the Pancholi family and was reportedly in a relationship with Suraj who is a student at an acting school. Jiah reportedly went into depression after knowing that Suraj had a new love in his life.
Apart from exploring the relationship angle, police are looking at the possibility whether Jiah Khan’s depression after not doing well in an audition test in Hyderabad recently was also the trigger for the suicide.
Her mother Rabiya Khan has reportedly told the police that her daughter was depressed after the audition test in Hyderabad on June 2.
Since Jiah Khan had last acted in 2010 in Housefull, she was also considering interior designing as a career for herself, according to her mother.
The post-mortem report has confirmed that hanging was the cause of her death.
London-raised Jiah Khan had moved to Mumbai with her mother to make a career in films. She had made her Bollywood debut opposite Amitabh Bachchan in Ram Gopal Verma’s Nishabd in 2007.
