Saroj Khan breathed her last on July 3. The ace choreographer was admitted in a hospital weeks back as she complained of breathing issues. She died of cardiac arrest.
Many actors and celebrities have been sharing their respective memories of the late choreographer, who was fondly known as masterji, in the industry. Karanvir Bohra is also one of those lucky ones who had the opportunity to meet Saroj Khan.
Karanvir never worked with Saroj ji but had met her once. Speaking about his memories of her, Karanvir shared, "I haven't ever had the chance to work with her, but Saroj Khan Ji was a very skillful and popular dancer in my grandfather Ramkumar Bohra's films before she became a choreographer. When I met her once and told her I was his grandson, she hugged me with so much love!".
Amongst many celeb posts, one of the heartbreaking one was by her granddaughter, Nabila Khan. Taking to her Instagram account, the lady penned a moving note which read, "You always had something to tell me, something that’ll help me upgrade myself into a better version of Nabila. You never had complaints against whatever mistakes I made, just few words of correction. You were my heart, my backbone, the most important part of my life, my teacher, grandmother, inspiration, basically the only reason I lived. It’s unreal to even think that you’re not physically with us anymore but, spiritually, I promise you, you’ll always be present in our hearts, minds and in this house, a house that felt like home with you around," read the first half of Nabila's caption.
She added, "You knew exactly what would keep us going. You knew how to pick us up when one of us fell, you were the roof to the house we built, the love that bloomed inside it. It’ll always be there, you’ll always be there. In our dreams, our thoughts, prayers and our hearts. We love you Nanna, we’ll never stop missing you, we’re incomplete without you, today all we ask is for you to reach Jannah, meet all our other loved ones there and just bless us with all the patience that we have to muster up. Rest in peace, our Home."
May her soul rest in peace.
