New Delhi: Jiah Khan’s tragic suicide – which sent a chill down everybody’s spine almost a fortnight back – has apparently inspired a filmmaker to make a movie on the sensitive topic.
According to a leading daily, ‘Bold Bollywood’ was launched at a five star joint recently.
The film – which tells the story of three aspiring actresses who come to Mumbai to make a career in Bollywood - has actors like Hazel Keech, Sandeepa Dhar, Shweta Bharadwaj, Rajpal Yadav and Manoj Joshi playing key roles.
“The media reports surrounding the sad death of Jiah Khan, the heartbreak and the subsequent loss moved me. Success in Bollywood is elusive and there are a lot of pitfalls. My film is a sincere attempt to expose the underbelly of the film fraternity,” debutant director Rikshhit Matta said.
Matta added that “One of the characters is similar to Jiah Khan and the ups and down she went through in her career and life.”
Shabana Hashmi – who will be producing ‘Bold Bollywood’ – said “We want to bring forth the dark side of the glamour world. Even for our future projects, we want to take up subjects with a message that bring about an awareness in society.”
Jiah Khan committed suicide by hanging herself in her Juhu apartment on June 3 when her mother and sister were not at home.
