Madhuri Dixit devastated over the death of her mentor Saroj Khan, pens heartfelt tribute

Known for being part of some of the biggest songs in the movie industry, Saroj Khan choreographed over 2000 songs in her career. She often collaborated with Madhuri Dixit who was known to be trained in classical dance and was a dancing diva herself. Mourning the loss of her mentor, Madhuri tweeted on Friday, "I'm devastated by the loss of my friend and guru, Saroj Khan. Will always be grateful for her work in helping me reach my full potential in dance. The world has lost an amazingly talented person. I will miss you???? My sincere condolences to the family. #RIPSarojji."

Through the late 80s and 90s, Madhuri ruled the big screen with her performances. Not only that, audiences often looked forward to her dance sequences. Some of her career's biggest song sequences were choreographed by Saroj Khan. Their collaboration had become the most successful one as filmmakers often roped Khan to choreograph Dixit's songs. Their collabs gave us some iconic songs like 'Ek Do Teen' (Tezaab), 'Chane Ke Khet Mein' (Anjaam), 'Tamma Tamma Loge' (Thanedaar), 'Dhak Dhak Karne Laga' (Beta), 'Choli Pe Peeche Kya' (Khalnayak, 1993). The 00s started with 'Dola Re Dola' (Devdas) that won Saroj Khan a National Award. They later went onto collaborate on Gulab Gang and the last song she choreographed for Madhuri was 'Tabaah Ho Gaye' in Kalank.

Saroj Khan is survived by her husband B. Sohanlal, son Hamid Khan and daughters Hina Khan and Sukanya Khan.
