Going by the title of the post, I sure you have realized its a post on the darker side of fame.We see celebs/starlets etc just snuffing out their life because a boyfriend dumped them or due to depression.Competition today,is literally killing people. Celebs are always in the public light , wear fab clothes and have the best of the stuff, so why is it that we usually see a starlet hanging herself from the ceiling after a seemingly innocuous fight with her boyfriend or a failing career. The news of Jiah Khan’s suicide disturbed me immensely and it got me thinking.I realized that these celebs also have the same basic needs like you and me do-that is love,food,water,shelter. Most of the ladies who committed suicide were deprived of love in their personal life. Be it , Nafisa Joseph ,Vievka Babajee ,Kuljeet Randhawa or Jiah Khan; these girls succumbed to to the pressures of life and were disillusioned by the very industry that gave them their fame and a setback in their personal life caused them to end their lives, leaving behind stunned family members, friends and fans.
A Miss India Winner in 1997 . A MTV VJ. Amongst the Top 10 contestants in Miss Universe in 1997. Head girl of her school. Beautiful to the core. So what made this Bangalore beauty take her own life? Bad luck in love. When her relationship with TV actor Sameer Soni did not work out , she was engaged to a business man named Gautam Khanduja. Her tragic tale was a classical tale of the “other woman “ where she was kept in the dark about her boyfriends divorce. Apparently, the boyfriend told her he was divorced when he was not. An ensuing conforntation took place and Nafisa ended her life when she was just 26 yrs old.She was found hanging from the cieling in her flat in 2004.
Too young to go Nafisa. Too young.
Kuljeet Randhawa was a model and actress. She was a part of the famed Hip Hip Hurray series. But the gorgeous lady,who was the daughter of a police officer couldnt withstand the pressures of life and her work and hung herself to death. I do wonder ,what could be so bad that she had to take her own life. Unfortunately, with her death, the truth about her death also died.
A very famous Mauritian model of the 90‘s.Gorgeous and lived a charmed life on the outside. She found fame when she starred in the Kama Sutra ads in the 90‘s.Later on,she went on to become a top ramp model for esteemed designers of that time like Rohit Bal , Jj Valaya ,Suneeet Verma-to name a few. Also ,she was a pageant title holder in Mauritius in 1993. But the lady was depressed. A separation from her boyfriend Gautum Vohra led to her suicide and her suicide note said “You Killed Me Gautam Vohra”.
Tragic, she was 37 at the time of her death.
Jiah Nafisa Khan:
An unconventional beauty with an unconventional debut in Bollywood. She starred in Nishabd in 2007 opposite the mega star Amitabh Bachchan which was an interpretation of Lolita.But, unfortunately, her career never took off. 3 films in 3 yrs and none for the past three years led to a feeling of failure. A recent ad audition in Hyderabad coupled with personal problems led her to take her own life leaving behind a distraught mother and two sisters. At 25 she had her entire life in front of her. RIP Jiah Khan.
Bollywood and the media have many tragic stories like these. However, it is not limited to the glamor world only. Kids commit suicide because they get bad marks or women jump out of the window due to marital problems. Its important not to take a depressed persons statement lightly as you never know when they will do something drastic. Always read between the lines if a child tells you hes facing problems at school or a friend of a relative tells you Life is not worth living..You may just save someone’s life.
