Renowned choreographer Saroj Khan breathed her last earlier today as she passed away from a cardiac arrest. While the late choreographer passed away in the wee hours of today morning, her body has now been put to rest at a cemetery in Malad, Mumbai.
Saroj’s daughter Sukaina informed a news portal that the family will be holding a prayer meet in memory of her mother later this week. She said, “We buried her at around 7 am. The prayer meeting will be held after three days.” Saroj was admitted in the Guru Nanak hospital in Mumbai last month after repeated complaints of breathlessness.
Often regarded as the Master ji of Bollywood, Saroj Khan had choreographed more than 2,000 songs. Her last film as choreographer was Karan Johar produced Kalank which featured Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha and one of her closest students Madhuri Dixit Nene.
