Bollywood actress commits suicide


Bollywood actress Jiah Khan, who made her debut starring opposite acting legend Amitabh Bachchan, died in an apparent suicide at her home in Mumbai, police said Tuesday.

The 25-year-old, who grew up in London before moving to India for a career in Bollywood, was found dead in her home by her family.

“We suspect she hung herself at her home” late Monday, a police officer said, adding that no suicide note was found and her body had been sent for a postmortem.
