Jiah Khan’s suicide very unfortunate, says Vidya Balan

Kolkata, June 20 (IANS) Terming Bollywood actress Jiah Khan’s suicide as “unfortunate” actor Vidya Balan Thursday said she could never understand why people resort to taking their own lives.

“It is very unfortunate. I hope no one ever has reason enough to end their life. I really can’t imagine whether that requires courage or the opposite of that, because I have never been able to fathom why people commit suicide…I think it is very sad,” Vidya said on the sidelines of a promotional event for the forthcoming film “Ghanchakkar” at the Park Hotel here.

The 25-year-old Britain-born Jiah was found hanging at her flat in Sagar Sangeet building in the posh Juhu area of northwest Mumbai June 3 when her family had gone out.

Jiah shot into the limelight with her 2007 debut movie “Nishabd”, in which she starred opposite Amitabh Bachchan. She was also seen in films like “Ghajini” and “Housefull”.

Vidya was dressed up as her character Neetu for the promotional activities of the film in a polka dotted matching ensemble.

“People will see me and think this is the girl from ‘Ghanchakkar’…loud makeup and matching clothes,” said Vidya.

Directed by Rajkumar Gupta, “Ghanchakkar” hits theatres June 28 and stars Emraan Hashmi as the male lead.
