We really admire star kids for their new face and debut films. We always get interested to know how they spend their lives being the children of stars. But not all star kids have a happy life. The modest or no success, broken homes and the failure to emerge out of their parents’ shadow are some of the reasons that force these kids to contemplate suicide. Here are some of the star kids who failed to stand above the struggles of the life and decided to end their lives.
1) Varsha Bhosle – Asha Bhosle
Varsha Bhosle was the daughter of Bollywood’s renowned and legendary singer Asha Bhosle. She shot herself in the head. She committed suicide just a day before her mother’s 79th birthday. Earlier four years ago from her death, she had consumed sleeping pills to end her life in 2008 also but survived. Varsha was apparently suffering from depression post her divorce. Varsha was a journalist living under the shadow of a legendary mother.
2) Sidharth Bedi – Kabir Bedi
Sidharth was the younger son of Bollywood and Hollywood actor Kabir Bedi. Unlike other star kids, Sidharth was studious and was a software engineer working in an MNC in the US. He studied at Carnegie Mellon University in the USA. He belonged to a broken family. His father had extramarital affairs. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed shortly thereafter with schizophrenia and committed suicide in 1997 at the age of 26.
3) Jiyah Khan – Rabiya Amin
Jiyah Khan’s suicide case is one of the much-talked cases of India. Its proceedings are still going in the court. She was the daughter of Ali Rizvi Khan, an Indian American businessman, and Rabiya Amin, a Hindi film actress in the 1980s. Khan’s father left the family when she was two and never came back. Describing her father’s absence she said: “A man who left his daughter when she was two, should be hanged in public”. She was already betrayed by her father and an add-on her rumored boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi’ betrayal made her difficult to breathe. Unfortunately, all because of this and unsuccessful Bollywood career, she ended her life by hanging herself.
4) Monika Chaudhary – Jagjit Singh
The late melodious singer too bore the pain of losing a child. However, she was his step-daughter. Monika Chaudhary hung herself from the ceiling fan. She was all broken, after two failed marriages and hence took the extreme step. Monika was Chitra Singh’s daughter from her first marriage before she married Jagjit Singh. Monika had been a print model in her time, but not as famous as her mother.
