Bollywood actor Jiah Khan committed suicide in her Juhu flat on Monday night at 11 pm. The reason of her suicide is still unknown. Preliminary reports suggest that Jiah committed suicide though the cause of her death is still unconfirmed. Dia Mirza reportedly broke the news of Jiah’s death on micro blogging site Twitter.
Also known by the name Nafisa Khan, Jiah made her Hindi film debut in 2007 opposite Amitabh Bachchan in the controversial Nishabd. The following year, Jiah went on to appear in the commercially successful Ghajini with Aamir Khan. The actress was last seen in Sajid Khan’s multi-starrer Housefull in 2010. Reacting to the shocking news of Jiah Khan’s suicide, Amitabh Bachchan Tweeted:
It’s not been a fortnight since actor and Bollywood star – Sanjay Dutt went to jail that we see two more B-Town folks on the wrong side of the law. Vindoo Dara Singh is in police custody for the murky IPL spot-fixing and betting case and the starlet Sana Khan – whose career hasn’t even taken off – is on the run.
Sana Khan has been declared absconding after she was charged with alleged attempted abduction of a 15-year-old girl for rejecting her cousin, Naved’s marriage proposal. Navi Mumbai Police have already arrested four persons – Sana’s cousin Naved Khan (22) and his three friends Kshitij Dubey (22) and Vismit Ambre (23) and a 17-year-old boy minor – in the case. Hunt is on to trace the 25-year-old actress.
Thanks to Salman Khan and Big Boss, Sana Khan got a role in Mental, a Sohail Khan movie starring Salman Khan. The movie is under production and is stalled now since Sana is on the run. I fail to understand why Bollywood walas are so callous about law??? Do they think that they are too influential or powerful that they are beyond law? NO WAY! Sanju Baba and Vindoo has learnt the hard way and now it is Sana’s turn.
Cannes 2013 is on and this year the festival will see the largest contingent from Bollywood as Cannes is celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema. Bollywood stars who have already landed at the French Riviera are Amitabh Bachchan as the 12-Day Cannes Film Festival opened with the screening of The Great Gatsby, Vidya Balan who is part of the illustrious jury, the lovely Frieda Pinto and Sonam Kapoor who is there as one of the Brand Ambassadress for L’Oreal.
Cannes Film Festival is keenly watched by fashionistas to dwell over the style quotient of divas from the celluloid. Vidya Balan made three appearances, all in traditional Indian wear by Sabyasachi Mukherjee – one in a maroon lehenga (I particularly loved the simple Choli bereft of any gaudy embellishment), another in a lovely ivory saree paired with a brown blouse with gold embroidery on the shoulders and a final one in a peach coloured lehenga-styled in Mughal regality for the Gatsby screening. The final look was a little OTT for me.
Big B made a couple of appearances. The sporty/safari jacket that Bachchan donned was out of place. Rest of the Gatsby team were dressed up in greys and blacks. Bachchan’s striped blue Safari jacket and white pants and shoes did not compliment his natural style. And gawd that belt at the waist was a disaster. At The Great Gatsby screening Amitabh Bachchan was again the odd one out in his shimmering BLINGY jacket. Could have gone for a Bandhgala with sober embellishment if he wanted BLING.
Sonam Kapoor please apna Nath utaar do. (No pun intended! Nath Utaarna also means losing virginity, which I am sure Sonam’s done with.) Our stylish diva too opted for an off-white saree (Anamika I think) with a lattice work full-sleeve jacket for Gatsby screening but that huge nose ring was definitely an eye sore. Another appearance in a scalloped Anamika Khanna jacket with lattice work paired over high-waist pants was chic. She was also spotted with Frieda Pinto in a black and grey ensemble was nice too but I have my reservations over wether those gold danglers went with the look.
Oh yes Mallika Sherawat too was there at The Great Gatsby screening in an yellowish-orange sleeveless gown. Thank god there wasn’t any slits or sheerness or cleavage revealing elements in her ensemble.
Latest Bollywood entrant and star-daughter, Shraddha Kapoor recently had a fashion faux-pas moment. At a function, Shraddha wore a black sequined short dress and flesh-toned knickers. Couldn’t really understand the colour choice for the underwear. Wouldn’t black been the apt colour??? Anyway wearing contrast colour panty was a hidden fashion blunder on Shraddha Kapoor’s part but flashing them while sitting definitely was a blatant fashion faux-pas. I fail to understand why can’t they sit ‘propah’ while wearing a short dress.
My dearest Preity Zinta has been busy with IPL and is judiciously present at all the King’s XI Punjab’s matches. She relegiously dons custom-made Kings XI logoed tops and salwar-kameezs. But at one of the recent matches I discovered that PZ has let her belly grow. Must be relieved after PVR agreed to distribute her Ishq In Paris, Preity must be indulging in Punjab’s butter-chicken and dal-makhani. In the picture here PZ’s belly-bulge is very prominent. Poor girl wasn’t aware of the camera on her or else she would had taken a deep breath and sucked in her tummy.
I was rather shocked to see the images of pop-star Lady Gaga on a LV wheelchair in Chicago the past week. Gaga has been confined to a wheelchair since February this year, when she suffered a labral tear in her hip that caused her to abandon the remaining U.S. dates of her Born This Way Ball tour.
By the way Lady Gaga earlier spun around in a custom 24-carat-gold Mordekai wheelchair designed by Ken Borochov.
Woh…I am amazed by things celebrities do to stand-out and how the luxury brands are there to cater to all their needs. I am sure next time a Bollywood star breaks a leg or a hip, he/she will not be caught dead in a regular wheelchair or crutches!
