She then worked in Ghajini alongside Aamir Khan and Asin, as a supporting actress. She received praise from critics and audiences alike. The movie was a blockbuster hit and broke quite a few records.
The last film that she worked on was, Sajid Khan’s Housefull in which, she was one of the three lead actresses. As of now, it is unclear as to what exactly happened but the police aren’t ruling out homicide. Dia Mirza broke the news of her death on Twitter. Jiah Khan was rumoured to be dating Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab’s son, Suraj Pancholi and he was also the last person she spoke to over the phone before hanging herself.
