Taking to Twitter, Shah Rukh wrote, “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.” Shah Rukh remembered how she took care of him and expressed his gratitude towards her post her demise. Often, on Shah Rukh’s birthday, Saroj Khan would share a wish for him on social media and last year too, the legendary choreographer shared a fond memory with SRK. Saroj Khan worked with SRK in films like Baazigar & more. 

Meanwhile, the choreographer was admitted to the hospital last Saturday owing to breathing issues. Post that, her health worsened and for the last 36 hours, Saroj Khan was on a ventilator. She passed away due to cardiac arrest on Friday & was laid to rest in Malad, Mumbai. Her family took to social media to inform her that due to COVID 19 her prayer meeting was cancelled. She is survived by her husband, son and 2 daughters. She was the only choreographer to have won the National Award thrice for her songs.
