The year 2020 has given one more big blow to Bollywood and the country as the famous choreographer Saroj Khan left the world at the age of 71 due to cardiac arrest. The legendary dance choreographer started her career as a child artist when she was just three years old and then she started working as a background dancer in the 1950s. In her illustrious career of 40 years, she worked with many actors and actresses and gave many superhit and memorable dance songs.
Saroj Khan’s departure is certainly quite a big loss to the film industry because with her, an era has come to an end and it won’t be wrong to say that she was a complete dance school in herself. Saroj Khan became famous after she choreographed Sridevi in “Hawa Hawai” in “Mr. India” (1987), songs of “Nagina” (1986) and “Chandni” (1989). Her association with Madhuri Dixit produced some really great songs such as “Ek Do Teen”, “Tamma Tamma”, “Dhak Dhak”, etc.
Saroj Khan also had a pretty good television career as she worked as judge in some reality shows as well. Bollywood is mourning the loss of great Saroj Khan and here we bring you the tweets in which celebs have expressed their sorrow and despair while paying tribute to the legendary choreographer:

#SarojKhan #Masterji every song we did together whether Chui Mui Si Tum,Saanson ko saanson mein,Chand Sifarish,we argued,discussed. I’ll miss her presence. Her voice on the mike. Her Adaa. I would tell the actors Male & Female,do 50% of how she does a shot & you’ll be a star
— kunal kohli (@kunalkohli) July 3, 2020
I lovingly called her ‘HumarePyaareMasterji’.Her loud seeti on set.I would find the shot with the most adaa & make sure she showed that herself,many actors on seeing it would say ‘now how can we match that?’ She had Adaa like no one else. #SarojKhan Hindi Cinema has lost its Adaa
— kunal kohli (@kunalkohli) July 3, 2020
Atleast I had a chance to dance in your company. I am going to hold on to those memories tight…. real tight.
❤️ we lose another star to the sky. Your songs will make every girl remember you for ever n ever. https://t.co/QWiG0FaP6j

Saroj Khan once stated that Madhuri Dixit was her best student and the actress had the ability to copy her to the perfection. In Saroj’s opinion, Hrithik Roshan was a perfect dancer and it was almost impossible to find mistakes in his dance. She considered Sridevi as a very good dancer and thought that Aishwarya Rai is a very graceful dancer.
RIP Saroj Khan!
