Veteran Bollywood choreographer Saroj Khan breathed her last on July 3 after suffering a massive cardiac arrest. Better known as 'Masterji' in the industry, she was 72. As her family members, students, fans and well-wishers are coming to terms with the loss, the veteran choreographer's daughter Sukaina Khan, during an interview with a leading daily, told that filmmakers were in talks with her mother for her biopic. Sukaina added that Saroj ji trusted Remo for making it as he being a choreographer would understand her journey better.
"A few people were in talks with my mother to make her biopic. But, she used to dismiss the idea, saying, ‘Mere baare mein kya jaanna hai logon ko?’ However, during her last days, she had said Remo D’Souza was keen on telling her story. She thought Remo, being a dancer himself, would understand her journey, and hence, was the perfect person to helm the project. The idea is to go beyond her choreography. I want people to know her journey as a fighter," Sukaina told.

Remo, who worked with Masterji on her last song Tabaah Ho Gaye from Kalank, during the interview said that he discussed the idea with her and assured her that he would visit her to gather information. “She had said, ‘You should make it.’ I promised her that I would visit her to gather information about her childhood and early days. But, I didn’t pursue it then as I was busy with my film," Remo said.
Saying that since she trusted him with her biopic, he will be making it shortly and will take the discussion ahead with Sukaina. “I should be the one making the film as she trusted me with it. I will take the discussion ahead with her daughter," Remo added.
