Madhuri wrote an emotional note
Madhuri Dixit wrote an emotional note on Instagram, telling how much she loved Saroj Khan and how much she respected her. She wrote – I still do not believe that Masterji is not in this world. Losing a friend and mentor like her is painful. It was difficult for me to write my grief in words. I spoke to her daughter when Sarojji was in the hospital and she said that Sarojji will be fine. She left the world in two days.

I still can’t believe master ji is no more. Losing a friend, philosopher & guide like her is devastating. It was difficult for me to put down my grief in words. I had spoken to her daughter when she was in the hospital & she told me that Saroj ji would be fine. Two days later, she was gone. The Guru-shishya bond that we shared, the assurance that she would be my mother on the sets, I'll miss everything. Today on the occasion of Guru Purnima, I pay my tribute to her. Nobody can make women look so beautiful, desirable & sensuous on-screen like her. She made everything look like poetry in motion. Smitten by her, I had told her, "Saroji ji, agar aap shakkar hoti na, I would add you in my cup of tea & drink it." She would laugh heartily at this. I'll miss that playful laughter. The first time I met her was while shooting for Maine Rab Se from Karma. Saroj ji asked me so many questions, one being 'Where did you learn to dance?' Unfortunately, our sequence was removed from the song. I'll miss her many questions. Saroj Khan was a game changer in the industry. She was the rebel in the male-dominated profession. There were rough edges to her personality & I feel that's because life had been pretty uneven to her. I'll miss that determined & headstrong woman. Dancing in front of the camera & dancing on stage are two different things. Saroj ji taught me how to romance the camera when we worked on Ek Do Teen. Such was the song’s popularity that Filmfare had to create the Best Choreography category to honour Saroj ji. I'll miss her resolve to push the envelope all the time. Her Nazakat, the aadayein, the elegance of every move, I was besotted. I knew we would do a lot of songs together. So we decided not to repeat any of the movements. She agreed to create hook steps that people will identify with every song. We created so many movements with no knowledge about what they are called. Who knew Tamma Tamma step was Dab? I'lll miss inventing hook steps with her. She was close to my family as well & this loss is deeply personal. There's no one like her & there won't be another like her. Saroj ji, I'll miss everything about you. I'll miss your 'Perrrfect'!
She further wrote – Our Guru-disciple’s bond, take care of me like her mother on the sets, I will miss everything. Today, on the occasion of Guru Purnima, I want to pay tribute to her. No one can show the curtain to a woman as beautiful, attractive, and elegant as she used to show. She used to mold everything like a poem. I was floored by them. I told them, ‘Saroj Ji, if you had no sugar, I would have drunk you in tea.’ She laughed very loudly on this matter. I will miss her laugh.
Further, Madhuri Dixit remembered Saroj Khan. Saroj Khan died on 3 July in a hospital in Mumbai. She was ill for a long time. Saroj’s departure is considered to be the end of one of Bollywood’s Era. She was the greatest female choreographer in the film industry, who made every small and big and old actor dance to her rhythm. Celebs remembered Saroj on her death.
