After the changes they made in the script, I felt that I don't suit the character.
UTV has also clarified that Jiah left "Yahoo" after creative changes were made to the script.
Speculations in the industry about Jiah Khan being dropped out of Ken Ghosh's project are completely erroneous. It was a mutual decision whereby Jiah opted out of the project seeing a misfit between the character and Jiah," said Ram Mirchandani, COO, UTV Rampage Motion Pictures.
Jiah is a wonderful actor with some amazing talent. We have signed her for our next projects and really look forward to working with her.
