Mumbai, May 15 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has expressed shock over the death of child artist Taruni Sachdev, who played his school friend in "Paa", in Monday's plane crash in Nepal.

"Just reading that Taruni Sachdev the girl child artist in 'Paa', has perished in Nepal plane crash .. please god may this not be true," Amitabh posted on his Twitter page.

At 14, Tarini had already featured in almost 50 ads and did a cameo in "Paa". She was among 13 Indians who were killed when the aircraft crashed into a hill while coming in to land at Jomsom in western Nepal.

Amitabh, 69, has memories of Jomsom.

"Jomsom, where the plane crash in Nepal took place is where we shot 'Khuda Gawah', a raw airfield and most difficult to land on," posted Big B.
