Jiah's tragic story inspires filmmaker

Actress Jiah Khan's tragic and untimely death left Bollywood in a state of shock. But tragedy seems to have also inspired one of B-Town's filmmaker to make a film on the incident.

The media reports surrounding Jiah's tragic death and lost love have inspired debutant filmmaker Rikshhit Matta to launch 'Bold Bollywood', a story which portrays the dark side of filmdom.

He says, "The media reports surrounding the sad death of Jiah Khan, the heartbreak and the subsequent loss moved me. Success in Bollywood is elusive and there are a lot of pitfalls. My film is a sincere attempt to expose the underbelly of the film fraternity."

The film is based on three aspiring actresses who come to Mumbai to make their Bollywood dreams come true. One of the girl's character is similar to Jiah Khan and the ups and down she goes through reflects the late actress's life.

"One of the characters is similar to Jiah Khan and the ups and down she went through in her career and life." Matta adds.
According to producer Shabana Azmi, "We want to bring forth the dark side of the glamour world. Even for our future projects, we want to take up subjects with a message that bring about an awareness in society."

The film will be presented by Shabana Azmi's Zahara Productions.
