She was the cute girl in many commercials. Say Rasna and the face that comes to mind is of Taruni Sachdev. More recently she played the role of Amitabh Bachchan’s classmate in Paa. The 14-year-old is feared to be one among the casualities of the Nepal plane crash that happened on Monday morning. She was on her way from Pokhara to Jomsom along with her mother Geeta, when the plane crashed.
Taruni had worked in two Malayalam films – Vellinakshatram (2004) and Sathyam (2004). She had also appeared on Shahrukh Khan’s quiz show Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain? A shocked Amitabh Bachchan tweeted, “Just reading that Tarini Sachdev the girl child artist in Paa, has perished in Nepal plane crash .. please God may this not be true.”Please do not say that this is true … I am so shaken … she was the most bright and beautiful little girl ….”. Prithviraj who has worked with her in Sathyam also tweeted, “RIP dear.”
