News of the ace choreographer being hospitalised had emerged on June 17 when Khan had complained about breathlessness.

The Doctor said due to cold she was feeling Breathless and she would be Discharged in another 2 to 3 days. Please keep her in your PRAYERS.”
Saroj Khan had started her Bollywood career as a background dancer and then she gradually climbed up only to be recognised as one of the best choreographers Bollywood has ever seen. During her 56 years of a prolific career, she has worked with all the top Bollywood stars and filmmakers but it was her match with Madhuri Dixit that was celebrated the most. From Mr. India (1987) to Chandini (1989), Tezaab (1988) to Thanedaar (1990) and her iconic song Dhak Dhak Karne Laga from Dil (1992) Saroj Khan was synonymous to grace, adaa and the nakhra we saw in our leading ladies on the '80s and the '90s.
Apart from several Filmfare awards, Saroj Khan was awarded the prestigious National Film Award three times. Devdas (2003), Sringaram (2006) and Jab We Met (2008) helped her get the national honour. She last worked with Dharma Productions on their 2019 released Kalank which starred Madhuri Dixit, Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur.
