She was killed along with 13 Indian passengers when her plane crashed in Nepal
Taruni Sachdev in 'Paa'
Child actor Taruni Sachdev achieved the impossible three years ago when she shared screen space with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan at the tender age of eleven. But nature’s cruel ways truncated her life when the Agni Air plane she was on crashed into a cliff in Jomson, in Western Nepal on May 14, 2012.
Reportedly, Taruni was accompanied by her mother Geetha Sachdev who was also killed in the plane crash.
Apart from featuring as Amitabh Bachchan’s character Auro’s friend in the blockbuster movie, Taruni also featured in two Malayalam films, ' Vellinakshatram,' ' Sathyam,' Shah Rukh Khan's quiz show 'Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?' and several other TV commercials.
Amitabh Bachchan expressed his shock over the death of child artist Taruni Sachdev along with 13 other Indian passengers aboard the flight with the words: “Just reading that Taruni Sachdev the girl child artist in 'Paa', has perished in Nepal plane crash. Please God may this not be true."
His son Abhishek Bachchan wrote: “Shocked and very saddened to hear about the Nepal plane crash. Lost 1 of my cutest co-stars. Little Taruni Sachdev from 'Paa'. Speechless..."
