Taruni Sachdev was born on 14 May 1998 in Mumbai, India, to industrialist Haresh Sachdev and Geeta Sachdev. She studied to class nine at Bai Avabai Framji Petit Girls' High School.
Sachdev had dreamt of becoming a heroine. In 2004, she made her debut in Vinayan's comedy-horror Vellinakshatram. Vinayan said Vellinakshatram endeared Sachdev to Malayalam audiences. The same year, Sachdev appeared in the action thriller Sathyam.

Before Taruni left for a month-long trip to Nepal, on 11 May 2012, she hugged all of her friends and told them: "I'm meeting you guys for the last time".

Taruni died in the Agni Air Dornier 228 crash near Jomsom Airport in Nepal, on 14 May 2012. Taruni's mother Geetha Sachdev, who accompanied her on the flight also died.

Her last film was the Tamil drama-thriller Vetri Selvan, which was released in 2014. Sachdev had completed most of her part; director Rudhran stated that her footage would be retained "as a remembrance of the prodigy" and that the rest of her role would be patched up during the post-production.
