Charmee: Everytime i hear such news , i just blank out … It’s d same rite now … RIP Jiah.

Ram Gopal Varma: Never ever seen a debutant actress with more spunk and more spirit than Jiah when I was directing her in Nishabd. No matter what her problem was I just so wish she applied her on screen philosophy of Nishabd to her own life which is to ‘take lite’. The last time I met her, Jiah told me that everyone around her makes her feel like a failure. In spite of being highly appreciated in Nishabd and being a part of hugely successful Ghajini and Housefull she had no work for the last 3 years. I don’t know the reason what led to this but Jiah was very depressed about her career and scared for her future.
