Child actor Taruni Sachdev, who shared screen-space with Amitabh Bachchan in Paa, has died in the Nepal plane crash on Monday. Her mother Geeta, who was traveling with her on the plane, also died in the tragic mishap.
Taruni was also popular for her Rasna cola ads with Karishma Kapoor.
A shocked Abhishek Bachchan tweeted “SHOCKED and very saddened to hear about the Nepal plane crash. Lost one of my cutest co-stars. Little Taruni Sachdev from PAA. Speechless”
Amitabh Bachchan hoped against hope that the news wasn’t true “Just reading that Taruni Sachdev the girl child artist in Paa, has perished in Nepal plane crash.. please God may this not be true”
We tried contacting R Balki, the director of Paa, but he simply said “too shocked, no comments”
