Bollywood Actress Jiah Khan’s mysterious suicide is planned to hit the silver screen with film stars well-known Marathi actress Tejaa Deokar playing the role of Jiah Khan
Without revealing much, Tejaa said, “Yes we are making Nati on the life of an actress who is frustrated with her career and especially her love life. It is a journey of a woman and the circumstances that compel to her commit suicide. I have to lose a lot of weight in the first half of the film and I am rigorously working on it. In the second half, I need to put on weight. I am also working on the stories of different models and actress who have committed suicide in the past.”
On being asked if the film is based on the recent Jiah Khan’s suicide case, Tejaa replied, “I believe performing the character will create no controversy at all. Why should I bother to take permission from her mom? Had it been some great politician or someone who may have done something for our country, then I would care to seek permission. If it were someone like Indira Gandhi, then we would definitely have sought permission. Also, my producers will have to look into all this. I as an actor need to just do my job.”
About Suraj Pancholi, she says, “Both hands are needed to clap. While in love we cannot blame the other.” Adding about her own love life she says, “My man is not from Bollywood at all. But I am very lucky to have someone so understanding and trustworthy. But, I must confess I would never think of committing suicide, no matter how tough things get. Life is full of problems we need to sort them out.”
Nati is being directed by debutant Yogesh Jadhav and is all set to hit the screens in the month of October. Some sources also claim the director is on the hunt for an actor who looks similar to Suraj Pancholi.
