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.

Khan made her Bollywood debut in 2007 with the controversial film “Nishabd” (“No words”).
