Although we may claim to follow the lives of our favourite Bollywood celebs closely, there are some mysteries which remain unsolved till date. Actors have come and gone, but some disappearances remain unexplained. Some deaths shocked us beyond words. For instance, what really led to Jiah Khan’s death?
Sometimes, there is really no answer for the things that happen to us. Here is a list of 5 Bollywood mysteries that remain unsolved even today:
1. The Death Of Jiah Khan
Jiah Khan had just stepped into Bollywood and had even done a controversial film, Nishabd, with Amitabh Bachchan. However, she clearly led a troubled life which came to light when she killed herself in 2013. She had an abusive relationship with Sooraj Pancholi which was revealed in her suicide note where she hinted that he was the reason behind her suicide. There were rumours of an abortion as well, just before she killed herself. However, the investigation for her case is still ongoing.
2. Divya Bharti’s Death
In 1993, Divya Bharti was living the life that most 19 year olds can only dream of. Married to Sajid Nadiawala, she was supposed to become one of the biggest superstars in Bollywood. One night, while she was at home drinking with her husband and friend, Neeta Lulla, Divya went to her balcony in a drunken stupor and fell to her death five stories down. However, the question remains if that was indeed a suicide or murder. The case was eventually closed without conclusive results.
3. Parveen Babi’s Life
Parveen Babi was one of the hottest and most talented actresses that Bollywood had seen. Yet, she suffered from schizophrenia and spent her life feeling that someone was trying to kill her. Her former partner, Mahesh Bhatt had opened up about her issues in a talk show. She had even claimed that Amitabh Bachcha, with whom she was rumoured to have an affair, had tried to murder her. She died in 2005, alone in her apartment, and her body was found 72 hours after her death.
4. Mamta Kulkarni’s Sudden Disappearance
In the 90s, beautiful actress Mamta Kulkarni suddenly disappeared not only from Bollywood but also from the country. It was her friendship with underworld dons like Chhota Rajan and her relationship with leader of international drug cartel, Vicky Goswami, which caused her to disappear. She also apparently lived in Dubai in disguise for a while and came back to the country more than 10 years later.
5. Nafisa Joseph
While Nafisa had seen a successful model and video jockey, her private life had always been in shambles. Jumping from one relationship to another, she was finally engaged to marry Gautam Khanduja who suddenly called off the marriage a few days before the wedding. Unable to take it any longer, Nafisa took her own life. However, there were rumours of her suicide being staged and the truth being shoved under the rug.
Turns out, Bollywood is not all glamour and glitz, is it?
