MUMBAI: Jiah Khan’s younger sister Karishma is furious at reports that Jiah was alcoholic, drugged and had earlier attempted suicide earlier too. The family sees these as allegations being circulated by Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj to portray Jiah Khan as a depressed, temperamental girl prone on a path of self destruction.
Speaking to India on the phone, with Jiah’s devastated mother Rabiyah in the background saying “Tell them, she was an angel… She didn’t deserve this”, Karishma clarified that the Bollywood actress had not attempted suicide earlier. She has also not seen any doctor for a slit wrist. Karishma said the autopsy report would clear her sister’s name.
The young actor, who met a premature end, was acclaimed for her acting in her debut film Nishabd, where she held her own alongside the legendary Amitabh Bachchan. This makes us feel that acting runs in her genes, considering her mum Rabia Khan too has done her share in the limelight; she acted in N Chandra’s superhit 1986 movie Ankush. And now Jiah’s younger sister Karishma Khan will be making her debut, if rumours are to be believed.
We heard that Rabia Khan was already in talks with a few producers to discuss investing in Karishma’s debut film. However, with the sudden and unfortunate news of Jiah’s suicide, we presume that Karishma will be taking her time to recover from the shock before she can make any move towards working on a debut film. Apparently when Jiah was alive, she was quite excited about her sister’s potential movie career..
Well, Karishma definitely is a good-looking girl, and we’re sure she will have a great chance at success in Bollywood. But after such a cruel twist of fate that was her sister’s life, would this new Khan kid want to be a part of the film industry? We wonder…
