Saroj Khan death: Aishwarya Rai, Priyanka Chopra, Shah Rukh Khan share their memories

Bollywood superstars Aishwarya Rai, Priyanka Chopra, and Shah Rukh Khan have shared their thoughts and experiences as they pay tribute to the veteran choreographer Saroj Khan on her death.

Saroj Khan has passed away on Friday due to cardiac arrest at the age of 71.

King Khan gave an interview to megastar. He shared a memory he had with Saroj. He said that Saroj had once slapped him for complaining about work.

“I remember, in my early days, I was working with Sarojji. In those days, I would work three shifts and would be like this (leans back on his chair and sticks his tongue out).”

“I told her, ‘Sarojji, itna kaam hai, thak gaya hoon (Sarojji, I am too tired, there is too much work)’. She would be very motherly towards me and she slapped me on the cheek, pyaar se (lovingly), and said, ‘Kabhi yeh mat kehna ki zyada kaam hai’ (Never complain about having too much work).”

“In this area of work, there is never too much work. I just feel fortunate that I have so much to choose from. So, no pressure.”

He had paid homage to her on her demise. “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.”

Aishwarya recalls her experience of working with Saroj during the shoot of Taal. She posted a picture of her with the dancing queen.

She said, “ALL my Love Always too, Saroj ji. May your Soul Rest in Peace. Much respected, admired, and adored as our Dance Guru in our Film Industry…truly a Legend…Such a privilege to have had so many memorable experiences dancing under your guidance…THANK YOU for All your Duas and Blessings always… and so much LOVE. You will truly be missed. Prayers and much Strength to all your family.”

On the other hand, Priyanka also wrote an emotional note for the guru. She shared a photo of her and said, “Many of my teenage dreams came true when she choreographed me in Agneepath.” “Taskmaster, perfectionist, innovator, trendsetter, genius… Saroj ji was many things to many people,”
“To me, she’ll always be an institution that defined an era of dancing with abandon, emotion & passion.”
