Before Bollywood actress Jiah Khan committed suicide in early June, her younger sister was reportedly in talks to make her film debut and follow in the footsteps of her acclaimed sibling, according to gossip website BollywoodLife.com.

Khan's mother, Rabia Khan, was rumored to be in talks with producers to discuss investing in her daughter Karishma Khan's film career.  However, with the sudden news of Jiah's suicide, the website "presume[d]" that Karishma will be taking time to recover from her sister's death before moving forward with any work on a debut film. The report added that when Jiah was alive, she was excited about her younger sister's potential movie career.

Rabia was an actress herself, starring in N Chandra's 1986 movie Ankush. Jiah made her film debut in 2007's Nishabd alongside Amitabh Bachchan.  The film was loosely based on Nabokov's Lolita and she received a Filmfare Best Debutant nomination for her acting skills. She then starred in 2008's Ghajini and 2010's Housefull, according to IMDb. Rabia said the late actress was unhappy about her acting career. Jiah was exploring a career in interior designing besides acting in films, according to her mother.

Jiah was born Nafisa Khan on Feb. 20, 1988, in New York. She was raised in London and her official website said that she studied English literature and Art from MPW in London. At the age of 17 she went on to study Shakespeare and method acting at the Lee Strasberg's Institute in New York.

The 25-year-old hanged herself at her Juhu residence in Mumbai on June 3. She left behind a six-page suicide note, which is now being investigated following claims of mismatching handwriting compared to other letters written by the late actress. Suraj Pancholi was Khan's boyfriend and the last to speak to her before she killed herself. A Mumbai court deferred the hearing of his bail plea in connection to the suicide. Pancholi was held on the charge of abetting Khan's suicide and his hearing was postponed to June 21.
