Renowned Bollywood choreographer Saroj Khan died early on Friday morning due to cardiac arrest. She was 71. Needless to say, her sad demise has left everyone shocked in the Bollywood industry. Bollywood is mourning the death of the celebrated choreographer on Twitter.

She was admitted to Guru Nanak Hospital in Mumbai last Saturday after she complained of breathing issues. The mandatory COVID-19 test done at the hospital showed a negative result. The three-time National Award winner had choreographed some of the most memorable songs in the Hindi cinema.

Sridevi’s Hawa Hawai to Madhuri-Aishwarya’s Dola Re Dola, iconic songs choreographed by Saroj Khan.

In the 1950s, Saroj began working as a background dancer and got her first break as an independent choreographer with Geeta Mera Naam in 1974. In her career spanning several decades, she is credited with choreographing over 2000 songs and won three National Awards.

Lately, she had been selective in signing new projects. Her recent works include choreographing Kangana Ranaut in ‘Manikarnika’ last year and ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ in 2015. Her last major assignment had been directing songs in Karan Johar‘s movie ‘Kalank’.

This year 2020 is coming with a lot of bad news. A month back Bollywood superstars Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor passed away. Also, young actor Sushant Singh Rajput also committed suicide which has shaken the entire Bollywood industry.
