According to director Ram Gopal Varma, who launched Jiah in 'Nishabd', she was very depressed. In a string of tweets following reports of her demise, Varma said, "The last time I met her jiah told me that everyone around her makes her feel like a failure... Inspite of being highly appreciated in Nishabd nd being a part of hugely successful Ghazni and Houseful she had no work for the last 3 years... I dont know the reason what led to this but jiah was very depressed about her career and scared for her future."(sic)

Others who knew Jiah have tales that suggest poor self worth. According to Bollywood freelance photographer Viral Bhayani, who took this photo of Jiah on her last birthday, "These pics were taken on her last birthday at her Juhu home. I was also present at her home but she refused to pose as she was worried that fashion blogs would comment on her looks. Although she looked quite hot, my convincing did not work. I was introduced to her few years back to her by industrialist Kapil Mehra as a young singer and not an actress. As far as I know her album never came out but her album was ready."
