Saroj Khan Death: Late Choreographer's Daughter Gets Emotional As She Remembers Her Fighter Mom, 'She Was The Man Of Our House'
Today morning, we woke up to the saddening news of ace Bollywood choreographer Saroj Khan passing away due to cardiac arrest. It was last week that Saroj was hospitalised after complaining of breathing issues, she was 71 years old. Saroj's death has brewed a storm across the industry, as she played a massive role in shaping and building almost every successful actor's dancing/expressing skills. In a conversation with Pinkvilla, Saroj's youngest daughter Sukaina Khan opened up on her mother's hardships, journey and how she single-handedly took care of all her kids after getting separated from her husband at a very young age.

Remembering the legendary artiste, Sukaina told, "My mother was my hero. She was the greatest influence in my life. She was both a mother and father to me. She was very lenient but at the same time, wanted my etiquette to be perfect. She loved me being around her since I'm the youngest. My mum was my fighter. From the age of 13 to 71, she has done everything to fend for us and give us a full life. She has never complained and was the man of the house."

On being asked about what happened to Saroj Khan, Sukaina told that she was hospitalised after complaining of breathing and was recovering well until last night when her diabetes' level escalated. As per Khan's daughter, the doctors tried their best to revive Saroj but, unfortunately, she didn't respond. 


Saroj Khan was married at a very young age of 13 and she had her first kid when she was just 14. Unfortunately, Saroj's marriage couldn't last for long and she single-handedly raised her kids. "Every woman would agree with me that raising children alone is a very difficult job. And when you have a few other family members depending on you, it becomes all the more difficult. She never had a frown on her face. She was always like, 'Main hoon na. Ho jayega'. She never had a no for any problem and didn't disappoint anyone saying, 'Main nahi kar sakti'. My mother has always backed us up," concluded Sukaina.
