Similarities Of Pratyusha & Jiah Khan Suicides That Will Shock You


The not solved Jiah Khan and Pratyusha Banerjee suicide cases have been the two most high profile suicide cases in recent times that made both the B-Town and Television World Shocked. There are lot of similarities between the two cases.

Almost of the same age: Jiah was 25 when she died, Pratyusha was a year younger. Two promising lives, and careers, met an abrupt end, for reasons that are still speculative.

Troubled relationship: Following the death of Jiah, there were numerous reports of her ending her life because of her alleged abusive relationship with Sooraj Pancholi. The CBI even charged Sooraj with abetment of suicide. He was later arrested, and released on bail. Pratyusha’s boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh is also in the dock.


Death by Hanging: On June 3, 2013, Jiah was found hanging from a ceiling fan at her flat in Sagar Sangeet building in Juhu, Mumbai. Pratyusha Banerjee is said to have hanged herself from a fan at her Kandivali residence, on April 1, 2016.


Murder not suicide, say mothers: Jiah’s mother Rabia has constantly been stating that her daughter did not take her life, but was murdered. She even filed a petition in Bombay HC, claiming the same. The petition stated, among many other things, that a person who commits suicide would have his or her eyes popping and tongue protruding out, while in case of Jiah it was not so.

Career Problems although Good Start: Another theory that did the rounds following the deaths of the two actresses was that they were struggling in their respective careers.
