MUMBAI, June 3 (UPI) -- Bollywood actress Jiah Khan hanged herself in her Mumbai home Monday night, the Times News Network reported.

"She had been depressed for some time due to personal issues, but was keen on returning to acting soon," the Indian news network quoted a source close to the actress as saying. "She was also meeting filmmakers regarding projects."

The 25-year-old actress was raised in England and moved to Mumbai recently with her mother, Rabiya, TNN said.
