Death in Bollywood – 8 September 2021 – 8/9/2021 – Wednesday – BBC Two

Series 1 Episode 3 of 3

Bollywood actor Jiah Khan was found dead in her flat in 2013.

Jiah Khan’s family say the investigation was incomplete. Judges granted Rabia Khan two new investigations, first by the Mumbai Police, then by the Central Bureau of Investigation. Both concluded Jiah had died by suicide and was driven to it by her boyfriend. Jiah’s family commissioned a legal case review from a British law firm. It concluded there were faults with the investigations from the night she died onwards. Vital evidence might have been missed.

The film also explores Jiah’s early experiences in films as a teenager. She was typecast as ‘bold’ after starring in a version of Lolita. She worked with individuals later accused of sexual harassment during the Bollywood #metoo movement after her death. They deny wrongdoing.

Her boyfriend, charged with driving her to suicide, denies this, arguing that Jiah was under pressure from a young age and suffered mental health problems before they met. Her family say she was resilient and had much to look forward to in her career.

The police and CBI declined to take part in the series or to respond to allegations.
