“It’s nonetheless onerous to imagine that grasp ji isn’t any more. Shedding a pal, thinker, and information like her is devastating. It was tough for me to place down my grief in phrases. I’ve spent among the greatest moments of my profession together with her. The Guru-shishya bond that we shared, the peace of mind that she could be my mom on the units, I’ll miss all the things! Today on the event of Guru Purnima, I pay my tribute to her.
I had spoken to her daughter on the cellphone when she was within the hospital and she or he informed me that Saroj ji could be high-quality.Two days later, she was gone!
I doubt if anybody could make ladies look so lovely, fascinating, and sensuous on-screen like Saroji ji. Being a lady maybe she knew what would create magic. So aesthetic! The digicam angles… she made all the things seem like poetry in movement. Enamoured by her sleek actions, I had informed her as soon as, “Saroji ji, agar aap shakkar hoti na, I’d add you in my cup of tea and drink it.” She would snort heartily at this. I’ll miss that playful laughter!
I nonetheless keep in mind the primary time I met her as if it was day before. We have been capturing Maine Rab Se from Karma. Saroj ji requested me so many questions, one being ‘The place did you study to bounce?’ Sadly, our sequence was faraway from the movie however I’ll at all times cherish that reminiscence. I’ll miss her many questions!
Saroj Khan was a recreation changer within the business. She was the insurgent within the male-dominated career. There have been tough edges to her persona and I really feel that’s as a result of life has been fairly uneven and harsh to her. She has seen poverty and needed to fend for her household early on. Life’s experiences had steeled her nevertheless it couldn’t dent her expertise. I’ll miss that decided and headstrong girl!
Dancing in entrance of the digicam and dancing on stage are two utterly various things. Saroj Ji taught me easy methods to romance the digicam after we labored on Ek Do Teen for Tezaab. We rehearsed for a few weeks earlier than filming. That’s once I actually picked up Bollywood dancing. Such was Ek Do Teen’s reputation that Filmfare needed to create the Greatest Choreography class to honour Saroj ji. That’s how majestic that girl was. She made it occur! I’ll miss her resolve to push the envelope on a regular basis.
I used to be obsessed with her dancing type. The Nazakat, the aadayein, the magnificence of each transfer, I’ve have been besotted by that. After we began working collectively, we made a pact. I knew we’d do numerous songs collectively and so, we determined to not repeat any of the actions. She agreed that we are going to create hook steps that individuals will establish with each track. She was a genius! It’s such a loss. I’ll miss the opposite half of this pact!
Saroj Ji was innately proficient and so gifted as an artiste. Problem her with any monitor and she’s going to give you units that can depart you mesmerised. I keep in mind we have been capturing Hum ko aaj kal hai from Sailaab. The monitor was tough as a lot of the traces have been sung by the refrain. She simply listened to it a couple of instances and informed me to make use of this to our benefit. She had all of it found out in a couple of minutes. I couldn’t assist however ask, “Saroj ji, how do you give you these concepts?” She smiled and mentioned, “By no means take heed to music, you must really feel the music.” I’ll miss the girl who made me really feel the music!
Saroj ji was very affectionate and it wasn’t restricted to simply the primary artistes. She was equally keen on her dancers and really conscious of them. She would work as onerous on the primary artiste and her group members. All of us collectively used to make a track profitable and it’s as a result of Masterji by no means uncared for one for the opposite. I’ll miss her affection and inclusiveness on the units!
Many a time she would grudgingly reward my efficiency in songs choreographed by another person. However Saroj ji was at all times encouraging. She appreciated my work with Prabhudeva in Pukaar or Payal meri from Rajkumar. I admired this high quality in her to understand others, that’s so uncommon! Many would say she was possessive about me. If that’s true, I’ll miss her unconditional love for me!
Dola re dola is certainly one of her greatest choreography units. In fact, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s imaginative and prescient needs to be credited right here however the way in which Saroj ji used the digicam angles, it’s marvelous. She had labored on Hoton pe aisi baat from Jewel Thief, which was filmed on Vyajayanthimala. She was an assistant to Sohan Lal ji then. So she knew the trolley actions effectively. She by no means discovered dancing and but she was flawless. Solely a blessed soul can have a expertise so ingrained in her. I’ll miss her thoughts!
Saroj Ji’s loss is deeply private for me. Not solely as a result of we created magic collectively on display but additionally as a result of she was very near me and my household. She would demand movies of my youngsters enjoying musical devices and my youngsters have been equally keen on her. My youthful son was a part of a mission which wanted him to interview a celeb who he felt had achieved rather a lot in life. I used to be fairly assured that he would ask me and was even able to get quizzed. However he surprised me when he selected to interview Saroj Khan. After I requested why, he jogged my memory how I had informed him about Saroj Ji breaking stereotypes within the male-dominated business. I’ll miss her calls for for movies!
Saroj Ji was an inventor and really revolutionary in the way in which she perceived the lyrics of a track. We created so many actions that we didn’t even know have been a dance type. We by no means knew what we did in Tamma Tamma in Thanedaar was referred to as Dab. She was so versatile. I’ll miss inventing new hook steps together with her.
There’s nobody like her and there received’t be one other like her. She had informed me as soon as, “Not solely your physique however you must emote by way of your face and eyes as effectively. Jo dil mei hai woh aankhon mei dikhna chahiye.” My eyes are moist for some time now.
Saroj ji, I’ll miss all the things about you. I’ll miss your banter on the units. I’ll miss your ‘Perrfect’! solely your physique however you must emote by way of your face and eyes as effectively. Jo dil mei hai woh aankhon mei dikhna chahiye.” My eyes are moist for some time now.
