Ace choreographer Saroj Khan who was the go to person in the 90’s recently lashed out at the industry for not offering her any work in the last few years. It can be noted that Khan was the lady behind the killer moves by Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi, Sushmita Sen and others in the 90’s. According to a report in Mid-Day, as soon as Salman Khan got to know about this, the superstar came to her rescue like always and promised her work in his coming projects.
Opening up about it, Saroj Khan told the daily, “When we met, Salman asked me what I was doing nowadays. So I told him honestly that I don’t have any work [film offers], and that I am teaching Indian classical dance to young actresses. Upon hearing that, he said, ‘Now, you will work with me’. I know he is a man of his word, so he will keep his promise.”
Salman and Saroj have worked together in many films including Biwi Ho Toh Aisi, Biwi No.1, Andaz Apna Apna, etc. The report stated that Saroj Khan might be roped in to choreograph a song in Dabangg 3 for the superstar.
Salman and Saroj had a fallout during Andaz Apna Apna when Salman apparently felt she favoured Aamir over him. However, the two buried their differences in 2018 during Ganpati celebrations. He even obliged her wish to meet her grandson who had been unwell.
She had even said Sanjay Leela Bhansali didn’t pay him for Ram Leela, supplanted her and stole her moves. She said that she was told the tune was rejected because Salman Khan didn’t like it in light of the fact that there was a line from Dabangg in the tune. She said she was guaranteed she will be called for the new song, however then she was supplanted.
