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.
Janhvi Kapoor, who attended Masterji's dance class, mourned her demise with a heartfelt note. The actress's late mother Sridevi was Saroj ji's student and the duo gave chartbuster songs like Kate Nahin Kat Te, Main Teri Dushman, Hawa Hawai etc. "Can’t thank my stars enough for getting the chance to learn from you. I always cherished every moment I spent in the class room with you but now even more. You are truly special, truly a legend for what you’ve given our cinema through your dance. We’ll miss you Sarojji," Janhvi wrote while sharing a picture with the veteran choreographer.
The veteran choreographer who left behind an unmatched legacy, was laid to rest by her family in Mumbai.
