As per media reports, she died of cardiac arrest at the age of 71, her death came as shocking news to her fans.
Saroj Khan is famously known for her choreographies for Madhuri Dixit who went on to be known as the dancing queen of Bollywood, all thanks to the magical moves taught by Saroj Khan.
She had given some really memorable and commendable dance steps to the film industry and contributed to the success of Bollywood.
Apart from her fans, the entire film industry also mourned the demise of a great personality who made the biggies of Bollywood to match her moves.
Not only this, but Saroj Khan was also awarded National Award three times for choreographing more than 2,000 songs.
She choreographed the dance numbers for some iconic songs such as Dhak Dhak Karne Laga from Beta (1992), Ek Do Teen from Tezaab (1988), Hawa Hawai from Mr India (1987) and many more.
While mourning her demise, Shah Rukh Khan tweeted: “My first genuine teacher in the film industry. She taught me for hours how to do the ‘dip’ for film dancing. One of the most caring, loving & inspiring persona i have ever met. Will miss you Sarojji. May Allah bless her soul. Thank u for looking after me.”
