Veteran choreographer Saroj Khan, on July 3, breathed her last at a hospital in Mumbai due to cardiac arrest. She was reportedly admitted a couple of days ago after she complained of breathlessness, dizziness and sore throat. She was suffering from severe diabetes and age-related illness. The sudden demise of the veteran choreographer has sent Bollywood into mourning. 

Kajol, who worked with the veteran choreographer in films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Baazigar and others, penned a heartfelt note while sharing a throwback picture. "RIP to the most talented coolest choreographer ever! She taught me sooooo much that I always used everywhere in so many other ways. When she danced it was like watching a whole book ! Everything that she wanted to say was there so clearly on her face and in her body language . Even later when she grew older whenever we met I could see that mischief and affection and sheer love for her work. Love u Sarojji and be at peace knowing that u are loved and will always be remembered," she wrote.

Sanjay Dutt posted a picture with Masterji and his wife Maanayata Dutt. "This news has left me heartbroken. Saroj ji was not just a legend but also a humble person. We shared a beautiful relationship & worked in many films together. Her contribution to the industry is irreplaceable as there was no one who could dance like her. Om Shanti," he wrote.

Shilpa Shetty shared a throwback picture from the sets of Baazigar. She wrote, "A LEGEND has left us Can’t forget the moment I first met you when you came to choreograph ‘Kitaabe’ ( Baazigar) and I burst out crying (I was a huge fan of your work) I couldn’t believe you were actually standing in front of me. Then came ‘Churake dil’, which was a milestone in my career... and many more. You set the benchmark so high, taught me ‘how’ to express... a technician par excellence... No one shot women like you, you were the best! Will miss you. Churake dil mera #Saroj ji chali May you rest in peace, Masterji Strength and love to the family to cope with this irreparable loss."
