DID YOU KNOW? Late Choreographer Saroj Khan Confronted Rekha About Not Liking Her, ‘Rekha Ji, I Think You Are Allergic To Me'
Late Saroj Khan was an incredible choreographer who made Bollywood dance on her dance rhythm. She had choreographed more than 3000 songs and made the dance numbers hit. Bollywood lost this gem on July 3, 2020, due to cardiac arrest. In an old interview, Saroj Khan had opened up about her equation with Rekha. 

In an old interview with Lehren, Saroj Khan had shared an anecdote from the 1990 film Sheshnaag where she had confronted the Bollywood actress Rekha about her dancing. She was quoted saying, “The producer had given us very little time, we had three days of rehearsals. My group and I worked round the clock to compose (its choreography) and then requested the producer to send Rekha ji as it was a difficult dance. But she didn’t come. I think either she was not well or had some shoots, as far as I know, she had shoots.”




On the shoot day, Rekha was present, but she had requested to cancel the shoot as she was in low spirits. Khan was in shock seeing the pattern and confronted the actress and said, “Rekha ji, I think you are allergic to me. I call you for rehearsals, you don’t come. You come for shoot, but say that you are not well. You can talk to the producer and change the dance masters, tell them that you don’t want to work with me. Because kuch toh gadbad hai.”

The late choreographer recalling those days mentioned that Rekha was in tears when she confronted her. 

Rekha clarified to Khan and said that wasn’t the case but “I will do this song and show you how I can dance.” “In that anger and spirit, the dance came out beautifully. She danced very well and did all all the movements, without changing anything. Maybe it was the tension between us, but she did the best,” the choreographer added.
