July 03 : The renowned choreographer of Bollywood, Saroj Khan, will always be remembered for the most famous songs in Bollywood like ‘Ek Do Teen’, ‘Dhak Dhak’, ‘Dola re’ and many more. From Amitabh Bachchan to Madhuri Dixit Nene to Kareena Kapoor Khan, stars are mourning Masterji’s death and recalling fond memories of her.
Kajol, who worked with Saroj Khan in the song ‘Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen’ from Baazigar, took to her Instagram handle and shared an adorable picture. She stated how talented and a “cool” choreographer Saroj Khan was. “She taught me sooooo much that I always used everywhere in so many other ways. When she danced it was like watching a whole book! Everything that she wanted to say was there so clearly on her face and in her body language,” the Tanhaji actress wrote.
Kajol recalled that even when Guruji grew older and whenever they met, the actress could see that mischief, affection and sheer love for her work. “Love u Sarojji and be at peace knowing that u are loved and will always be remembered,” Kajol wrote. In an earlier interview, Kajol praised Saroj Khan as a brilliant dance master, who understood every bit of the song, and was very patient with her students.
Ajay Devgn also fondly remembered the three-time National Award winner Saroj Khan. The actor tweeted, “Being a technician’s son, I’ve always known that cinema is as much about a behind-the-scenes person as it is about actors. RIP Sarojji. You were an institution; your craft inimitable. Condolences to your family.”
