Taruni Sachdev, the 14-year-old actress, who died in a plane crash, was earlier roped in to play an important role in Vetri Selvan. She also completed shooting most of her part. When asked the director of the film, Rudhran, if those footages would be removed, he said, “No. It would be retained in the film as a remembrance of the prodigy. The rest of her part would be patched up during the post production.”
The young actress, who starred in Paa alongside Amitabh Bachchan and in many ads, lost her life in a plane crash, while coming from Nepal. Her mother too died in the tragic accident.
