Child artist, a very famous face Taruni Sachdev, who acted in more than 50 commercial ads and shared her screen space with Amitabh Bachchan in the critically acclaimed film ‘Paa’, died in a Nepal plane crash last Monday. The 14 year old Taruni was one among the 13 Indians who became victims of the plane crash. Taruni’s mother Geeta Sachdev who accompanied her, also became the victim of the crash. Hearing the death news of Taruni Sachdev, who played his school friend in ‘Paa’, Amitabh Bachchan expressed shock. He tweeted, ““Just reading that Taruni Sachdev the girl child artist in Paa, has perished in Nepal plane crash, please God may this not be true.”
Abhishek Bachchan also tweeted, “SHOCKED and very saddened to hear about the Nepal plane crash. Lost 1 of my cutest co-stars. Little Taruni Sachdev from PAA. Speechless.”
May Taruni's soul and all the plane crash victims’s soul rest in peace.
