    RGV : Jiah Khan was the "Most Innocent Sexy Girl" he had ever seen

    jiah khan news

    Jiah Khan, British American actress, model and singer who appeared in Hindi films made her Bollywood debut with Ram Gopal Verma's Nishabd opposite Big B. She was nominated for Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut and had catapulted herself into the Bollywood 100 Crore Club with Ghajini and Housefull.

    But, On 3 June 2013, she was found dead in her flat in the Sagar Sangeet building in Juhu, Mumbai after apparently hanging herself.

    Ram Gopal Verma revealed that "She was the most Innocent Sexy Girl have he had ever seen" in his book Guns and Thighs.

    Varma says, when he first met the actor, he thought "she was the most innocently sexy girl” he had ever seen. During the making of Nishabd everyone in the unit, including the director, was convinced that Jiah would become a huge star but her career, strangely, never took off. “When I heard of her suicide, I cried uncontrollably though I was never really close to her. She was one of the few people who couldn’t cope with the disappointments and frustrations the film industry is replete with."

    Verma also admitted that casting the megastar in Nishabd and Aag was a mistake. "... If somebody argues that Amitji had no business doing those films without knowing what he was getting into, yes, he was guilty of misplacing his trust in me, but he was not guilty of not doing his best."

    In a chapter titled ‘My love affair with Amitabh Bachchan’, Varma writes that Big B’s makeup man told him on first day of the shoot that Nishabd would not work and looking back he admits that it was a misjudgement on his part. "By that time my proximity to him had blunted my sensibilities as a viewer of his star performances and the filmmaker in me got greedy and dumb enough to experiment with him as an actor, resulting in Nishabd and Aag. It’s not so much the quality of those films that I am talking about here but the idea of casting him in those roles."

    The director also mentioned, those critics, who complain I make films in a hurry my answer to them is "I would rather live in the moment and make my film right now, than endlessly plan in the hope of it becoming a masterpiece."

    "Incidentally, the longest time I have taken and maximum money I have spent in my career on three film -- Dud, Ag and Department -- which are three of my biggest flops. I rest my case," said Verma.
