Three-time National Award winner, veteran Bollywood choreographer, Saroj Khan, passed away due to cardiac arrest on early Friday morning. She was 71.
According to Times Now, Khan passed away due to cardiac arrest.
She was admitted to Guru Nanak Hospital in Bandra last Saturday after she complained of breathing issues. The mandatory Covid-19 test done at the hospital showed a negative result.
Amitabh Bachchan sent out a tweet on Friday morning, writing ‘hands are folded, heart uneasy’, sending out prayers, without naming Khan.
Saroj Khan and superstar Madhuri Dixit’s association goes back a long way. Masterji’s exceptional choreography was instrumental in shaping the latter’s career.
